The Master's degree in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology teaches students the skills for handling complex new challenges in hard and software design and development, either for electronic and telecommunication systems or for industrial and power plant technology, based on the respective major or focus involved.

The Master's program enables bachelor graduates to widen and reinforce their expertise with theoretical and application-oriented training, in order to meet the demands of modern development particularly in high-tech sectors. This program builds on advanced technical knowledge of electrical engineering as well as methodological and personal skills, gained through the bachelor degree.

The professional aim of a Master in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology is towards a career in research and development, application management, consulting or sales of hardware and software. Furthermore, a Master is the basis for an academic career at universities and research institutes and serves as preparation for a PhD.

In the master's program deepening and broadening of theoretical and application-oriented knowledge and skills is carried out. The Master program extends the acquired professional focus of the Bachelor program by the two optional areas ‘Electronic and Communication Systems' and ‚Automation and Power Engineering'. Students can choose either for deepening of their knowledge by continuing their focus of the Bachelors, or for professional diversification by choice of the other focus in the master. The Master-students gain the ability for independent scientific work, which is also promoted by the relation of the Master's program to the research activities of the faculty and the faculty staff. They gain knowledge of methodological approaches and current research literature. Fundamentals of engineering are applied to real-world problems, which are derived from research projects and experiences within the faculty to develop skills and competencies for solving problems in the areas of design, test, development, and research. Furthermore, the ability is stimulated to quickly and systematically learn the ropes.

Focusing on ‘Electronic and Communication Systems (ENS)’, graduates have acquired in-depth knowledge in the areas of advanced components and systems of micro- and opto-electronics, and have extensive knowledge in many applications of rf-technology. They are in particular able to analyze, structure and solve practical problems in the field of micro- and opto-electronics and communication engineering as well as in related domains. They also have expanded and intensified the expertise to design systems in rf- and communications technology.

The focus on ‘Automation and Power Engineering (AET)’ zooms in automotive and industrial drive systems and renewable energy. Graduates have knowledge in numerous applications of automation and power technology and in-depth knowledge of modern sensor technology and control technology. They are able to deal with issues of automation technology, industrial sensor technology and drive technology and to apply current techniques. Furthermore, the graduates have the ability to identify the applicability of renewable energies and merge process modeling and simulation for system analysis. They have the competence to assess, structure and solve problems in the field of drives and renewable energies as well as related topics.

Furthermore, the economic fundamentals are supplemented and expanded towards Business- and HR-Management.
