Qualification Requirements


Previous Degree

Bachelor's degree (or equivalent) in electrical engineering, information technology and/or computer engineering by which the necessary academic background for the master's degree program can be proven.

The following qualifications are required to succeed in the master's degree program:

  1. Advanced mathematics (calculus at the university level, linear algebra, differential equations, integral equations, discrete mathematics, probability theory): 28 ECTS credits.
  2. Classical physics and physical principles of electronic devices (mechanics, electromagnetic fields, light and optics, thermodynamics); introduction to quantum mechanics, semiconductor electronics, physical principles of electronic devices: 10 ECTS credits.
  3. Fundamentals of electrical engineering including circuit technology [networks, circuit theory, circuit design, electronic devices, electro- and magnetostatics, signals and systems (signal theory)]: 34 ECTS credits.
  4. Informatics (computer science) and programming (C/C++ programming, data structures, digital logic, digital circuits, computer design, assembler, operating systems, multi-processor systems, networks, etc): 12 ECTS credits.
  5. Fundamentals of control and mathematical systems theory (mathematical modeling of electro-mechanical systems, linear control theory, first and second-order control systems, stability, time discrete and stochastic systems, adaptive control, etc): 8 ECTS credits.
  6. Electromagnetic field theory or theoretical information theory (non-stationary fields, waveguides, antennas, wave- and line equations, smith chart, scattering parameters with further emphasis on microwave circuits and devices or on waveguide design, antenna design): 8 ECTS credits.
  7. Application-oriented courses, e.g., from the areas of microelectronics, communications engineering, electrical power engineering, computer engineering or medical engineering. 20 ECTS credits.
