Electrical and Electronic Systems (Masters)

Almost no other technology is developing as quickly and innovatively as electric and electronic systems. Electric and electronic components, which can be intelligently linked to each other, require the latest developments in automotive electronics, energy technology, or information and communication technology. There are also extra challenges such as functionality and ensuring the reliability of these systems despite having heavy demands placed on them. The course focuses on providing specialist subject knowledge in the following areas: complete system procedures of modern electric and electronic concepts; robustness and safety; intelligent energy storage systems; systems for Virtual Reality and/or smart glasses.

You will have the opportunity to take part in scientific projects or in one of our exciting student projects (e.g. part of the racing team or our autonomous driving team, “S.A.D.I.” team). Both practical knowledge as well as research relevant training will provide you with good career prospects following your degree, and/or will allow you to progress to a PHD.
