Study contents

Telecommunications is about the transmission, switching and processing of messages and information. Messages in the form of voice, images or data must be converted into electrical or optical signals. They are suitably encoded for fast, secure and interference-free transmission via electrical lines, optical fibers or by means of electromagnetic waves in free space (e.g. mobile communications). Topics of study are therefore the fundamental properties of electromagnetic waves, the description and design of communications components and systems, and digital signal processing.

Hardly any other industry moves as quickly and is as defining for our everyday lives as telecommunications, because telecommunications connects people. If you have completed a relevant bachelor's degree and are interested in communications technology and data processing, then this is the right course for you.

Bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology.

Admission with other degrees is possible after individual examination, if necessary, and additional examinations may be prescribed.

The laboratory exercises and practical courses of the Master's Programme are equipped with high-quality and modern equipment and have sufficient space. The courses of the Master's Programme are not overcrowded. There are enough free places in all courses and sufficient support staff to take care of your individual needs.

Students who opt for this Master's Programme will be dealing with cutting-edge technology and with issues that shape our society. Building on well-founded basic knowledge, the Telecommunications Master's Programme provides outstanding practical knowledge to optimally prepare you for future challenges in this exciting field in research and industry.

  • Transmission links, e.g. in fiber optic technology
  • Mobile communications antennas
  • Traffic telematics
  • Digital filtering by a signal processor
  • Switching system for emergency services

Mobile communications, the Internet and the fixed network are growing together and are networked by global fiber-optic systems. For the ever-increasing demands on bandwidth and availability, we will have to use the existing frequency resources in cables and in radio much more efficiently. Additional frequency ranges are being opened up for completely new transmission methods, such as ultra-wideband radio systems. The transfer of multimedia data will require significantly higher data transmission rates in the future, and security in communications networks will demand new concepts.

The program does not require a mandatory internship. The lecturers provide support in arranging stays abroad, which can usually be smoothly integrated into the Master's Programme.
