Change in the Master's Programmes offered as of the winter semester 2022

The Master's Programme Energy and Automation Technology will no longer be open to new admissions starting in the winter semester of 2022. The two Master's Programmes 

  • Automatisierung und Robotische Systeme and
  • Elektrische Energietechnik und nachhaltige Energiesysteme

will be offered in succession. More information will be published on the dean's office page.

Electrical Power Engineering and Sustainable Energy Systems

Solar systems are placed in the foreground, in the background you can see mountains and in between in the forest are the wind turbines

The Master's Programme in Electrical Power Engineering and Sustainable Energy Systems deals with the many aspects of the topic of "energy" with a focus on "electricity" - from provision, preferably from renewable resources, to questions of distribution and security of supply, to efficient use, for example in electromobility. Finally, energy industry issues and scenarios are addressed through more flexible and decentralized markets. Students gain an in-depth insight into the interplay of technical issues of energy provision, storage and use with economic, social and ecological aspects.

Embedded Systems

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.

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

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.

Automation and Robotic System

The Master's Programme 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.

Interfaculty and interuniversity Master's Programme

Biomedical Engineering

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

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.

Material Sciences

The Master's Programme 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.
