Exciting New Program Starting in Winter Semester 2019

We are proud to announce that we managed to improve our program further for the winter semester 2019. What has been changed:

  • The 7.5 CP modules have been replaced by 5 CP modules, which allows us to adress more topics.
  • The variety of elective modules has been increased to offer a wider choice depending on your personal interests.
  • The modules contents have been updated to adress new state of the art topics.
  • Knowing the importance of German language skills, the amount of language classes has been extended.

Program Structure

The program is two-phased: one academic classroom oriented first year with theoretical content and a two-pronged curriculum: Mandatory modules shared by all majors, such as programming techniques, project management, presentations and communication skills. Major specific mandatory modules are complemented by a variety of state of the art electives. The third semester is dedicated to an industrial internship to gain experience within a German company. You will conclude IMSEIT during the final six months doing your thesis project in a demanding research-related topic.

Difference between the 3-semester and 4-semester program

The Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology offers the program in two different versions:

  • the 4-semester track
    is designed for international students and students coming from other German universities
  • the 3-semester track
    is designed for H-DA students

Both programs share the same academic curriculum. However, the 4-semester track offers an additional internship module, German language instruction classes and bridging courses designed for the needs of international students.

The internship of the 4-semester program can be waived in case relevant industrial experience can be shown.

Our Master’s course in "Electrical Engineering" offers a superior level of education in the following key areas of modern electrical engineering.

The general aim is to provide scientific skills and the ability to analyse, develop, and manage complex systems in the field of electrical engineering through the application of scientific methods. The course is aimed at developing in-depth abilities in theory and system-oriented thinking in such a manner that its graduates will have achieved the competencies necessary to enable them to perform, manage and direct research and development tasks as part of their later job responsibilities. All in­struc­tion is held in English so that the graduates are well prepared for their world-wide employment prospects.

The main goal of the course is to expand the students’ theoretical and practical knowledge in different fields of modern and advanced automation technology as well as application oriented computer science. The master degree course also adresses modern control engineering and robotics. The program is structured in a way to foster analytical thinking and real-life experiences through laboratory assignments.

Apart from the compulsory modules for all majors there are 4 compulsory modules for the major Automation :

  • Advanced Automation
  • Advanced Information Technology
  • Advanced Feedback Control
  • Advanced Robotics

The  major Communications offers an in-depth background aiming at state of the art communication techniques.The program builds the student’s ability to participate in research and implementation of projects dealing with modulation and coding schemes. It also expands student‘s knowledge on microwave components and systems as well as theory and applications of discrete time signals.

The program is highly research oriented and has been designed to not just offer a factual knowledge but also various chances to apply what has been learned in the lectures during laboratories.

Apart from the compulsory modules for all majors there are 4 compulsory modules for the major Communications:

  • Advanced Modulation and Coding
  • Information Networks
  • Digital Signal Processing
  • Microwave Components and Systems

Our master program has been designed to capture the essence of the rapidly developing fields of Embedded Microelectronics. It builds the student’s ability to deal with complex embedded systems in hardware and software, and to implement hardware algorithms and systems on digital hardware platforms. The program also expands the student's knowledge of microelectronics systems and signal processing components as well as state of the art embedded software architecture including automotive technology and multicore concepts.

The laboratory lessons are intended to consolidate the theoretical knowledge gained in the lectures.

Besides the compulsory modules for all majors there are 4 compulsory modules for the major Embedded and Microelectronics:

  • Complex Digital Architecture
  • Advanced Embedded Systems
  • Microelectronic Systems
  • Design and Test of Microelectronic Systems

The major Power is structured in a way to train students in modern Electrical Power Engineering and Renewable Energy. During this course students will learn  to cope with actual problems in industry by understanding the correlation between theoretical aspects and practical boundries.The master degree program also  provides the students with knowledge for planning and operation of modern power systems. Students will be introduced to devices and circuits for controlling and converting Electrical Power as well as Power Electronics.

The laboratory lessons are intended to consolidate the theoretical knowledge gained in the lectures.

Apart from the compulsory modules for all majors there are 4 compulsory modules for the major Power :

  • Advanced High Voltage Technology and Theory of Electric Fields
  • Power Systems and Control Technology
  • Control of electrical Drives & E-Mobility
  • Power Electronics and Switching Power Supply
