Program contents

Our two-year course “International Master in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (IMSEIT)” covers all relevant fields in electrical engineering and IT.

Within the program you can select from one of four majors:

  • Automation
  • Communications
  • Embedded and Microelectronics
  • Power Engineering

IMSEIT emphasizes a systems perspective with an integrated approach to topics and processes, tasks and projects. The orientation is international, with English as the language of instruction. Classroom projects are conducted in international and intercultural teams. Before the semester begins, various academic and intercultural activities/offerings help students acclimate to life in Germany. Internships and thesis research are conducted at international companies either in Germany or, if desired, in other countries around world. The program offers a transparent, step-by-step admissions process and a course of studies which can be completed within a set timeframe.

Career opportunities after graduation

Our graduates find well-paid and challenging jobs on all levels and in all sectors of industry, including at small and medium-sized technology companies, in the public sector, or as freelancers. An interdisciplinary emphasis – including instruction in areas such as economics and professional project management – helps prepare students for future leadership roles.

Modularized curriculum

The four-semester program consists of two phases. The first phase – over the course of the first two semesters – consists mainly of theoretical classroom work. This academic curriculum contains mandatory modules shared by all majors, such as programming techniques, project management, presentations and communication skills, as well as major-specific modules, which are then complemented by optional modules from any of the four majors. The second phase begins with the third semester and is dedicated to an industrial internship, i.e. professional experience at a German company. The program concludes with a thesis project (in a demanding research-related topic) completed over the final six months.
