Embedded Systems

[Translate to English:] Drohne

Embedded systems are present in all areas of our life and society. Computers are embedded in cars, trams, medical prostheses, production robots, agricultural machines, cranes, consumer electronics, air conditioning systems and more.

Energy Systems and Automation Technology

[Translate to English:] 3 Roboter

The Master's program in Energy and Automation Technology currently offers two specialization options. In the coming academic year, the two specializations will be offered in the form of two independent master's degree programs, Automation and Robotic Systems and Electrical Power Engineering and Sustainable Energy Systems, which have been completely redesigned in terms of content.


[Translate to English:] Antennenanlage

Telecommunications deal with the transfer, switching and processing of messages and information. Messages in the form of language, images or data need to be converted into electrical or optical signals.

Microelectronics and Photonics

[Translate to English:] Roter Laser

Microelectronics is the technological basis of our information society. All modern communications and information technology systems are based on this technology, as are components used in automation, consumer electronics, automotive technology, aviation, space travel and technical medicine.

interfaculty and interuniversity master's programs

Biomedical Engineering

[Translate to English:] Arbeit mit Armprothesen

Biomedical engineering links together life sciences with traditional engineering sciences. Healthcare is placing ever-increasing and more fascinating technical demands on biomedical engineering amidst growing demographic, ethical, ecological and cost pressures.

Computational Science and Engineering

[Translate to English:] Logobild für das Studium Computational Science and Engineering mit Programmcode und graphischen Modellen

The aim of the master’s programme Computational Science and Engineering is to introduce students to  basic knowledge in the field of applied mathematics and informatics.

The master's course in Material Sciences aims to provide a broad and fundamental education in the field of the scientific basis of materials, as well as their manufacture, examination, characterisation and application. In addition to such knowledge, graduates should also be capable of assessing and taking account of the societal and ecological dimensions of new materials.
