Course description

The Master's programme in Electrical Engineering equips students with specialized expertise in key areas such as Microelectronics Design and Communication Systems. This includes a strong foundation in theoretical concepts, practical skills, and application knowledge in fields like Analogue and Digital Integrated Circuits, Semiconductor Physics, Photonics, Embedded Systems, Digital Communications, and High-Frequency Engineering. Students must choose one of two specializations offered in English: Electronics Design and Technology (EDT) or Communication Engineering. The EDT specialization focuses on Microsystems and Integrated Circuit design. Both specializations provide in-depth knowledge and a wide range of modules to choose from. The final master's thesis constitutes three-quarters of the course. Additionally, the department offers a specialization in "Automatisierungstechnik," which is available in German. For more details, please refer to the German language version of the website.
