Electronics and Information Technology (formerly Information Electronics) - Master's Degree Program
Today’s information electronic systems are based on incorporating both hardware and software. Engineers who possess an academic background in Electronics and Information Technology require a broad base of education in order fulfill tasks which include the development, application, and combination of current construction elements, circuitry systems, and software technologies to create new products and applications. Conventional engineering and natural scientific subjects such as Electrical Engineering/Electronics, Computer Sciences, Physics, and Mathematics are a part of the Master’s degree program in Electronics and Information Technology, providing a wide, in-depth range of knowledge in the following fields:
- Base-knowledge of physics in Electrical Engineering, Electronics, Semiconductor Components
- Analog and Digital Circuitry Technology and Signal Processing
- Communications Engineering and Communication Networks
The Master’s degree program in Electronics and Information Technology incorporates in-depth, base-knowledge oriented classes conveying the knowledge needed today to allow graduates to analyze, draft, and specify information electronic systems in their entirety as well as further develop academic knowledge and methods of use as applied in electronics and information technology. This provides a sustainable and academically sound base on which to constructively build a future professional career.
The program provides graduates with:
- Extensive, application-oriented knowledge and mathematical skills for science and theoretical disciplines,
- In-depth academic base-knowledge and methods in Electronics and Information Technology and the ability to address tasks applying real-world applications,
- Internationally recognized level of specialization in Electronics and Information Technology and the potential to apply knowledge to other areas,
- Mastering engineering skills, including interdisciplinary cooperation, and how to quickly grasp and master new areas,
- As an engineer, being able to independently and responsibly solve scientific-technical tasks in corresponding fields,
- A strong social skill set, capacity for teamwork, leadership skills and a high degree of individual responsibility and
- the ability to lead research and development teams at an international level.
Graduates can pursue professions in:
- Development, production, and marketing of components, systems and software in the field of Electronics and Information Technology,
- Conducting base-knowledge and application-oriented research at universities, research facilities, and industrial companies.
Graduates of the program acquire a solid base-knowledge education and the ability to think analytically as well as have a technical understanding of cross-thematic implementation in all areas of business, administration, education, and societal issues.
The successful completion of the Master’s degree program is a prerequisite to enroll in a doctorate/PhD program.
