Study Content

In the first three semesters of their studies, which are mainly used for orientation, students acquire the fundamental knowledge they will need later in their studies. In the fourth semester, students choose one of two following specializations to further advance their knowledge:

Automation Engineering

Automation Engineering

The specialization Automation Engineering deals with the automatization of industrial processes, plants or robots. Students learn about the control and drive technologies required for automation, as well as the project planning of such systems.

Communication Systems Engineering

Communication Systems Engineering

The specialization Communication Systems Engineering deals with information transmission and data communication – key elements in intelligent systems such as car-to-car communication, the Internet, or wireless sensor networks in industry. Students learn, for example, how data is processed and transmitted in such systems.

The program offers intensive laboratory phases, an internship semester, and the opportunity to get involved in ongoing research projects; teaching and research are closely linked in this program. Extra-curricular supplements are also integrated to prepare students for the great variety of future professional activities.

The degree program is supplemented by pedagogical contents, including two short internships at vocational schools. The pedagogical subjects – approx. 15% of the time spent in the study program – will make it easier for deciding whether to work as an engineer after graduation, or to continue studying with the goal of becoming a teacher. Those who do decide to pursue a career as an engineer, will still have acquired a valuable additional qualification.
