Nowadays, complex microprocessor-controlled information systems are being built into technical products of all kinds - or even “embedded” - with increasing frequency. As a result, the classic boundaries between hardware and software are becoming increasingly blurred.

This development is taken into account in information system technology. The subject is interdisciplinary, i.e. more precisely: It forms the interface between computer science, electrical engineering and information technology.

Accordingly, the Information System Technology (iST) study area is a cooperation between two departments at TU Darmstadt - the Computer Science Department and the Electrical Engineering and Information Technology Department.

General note: With the Bachelor of Science, students obtain their first professional qualification. However, the Master of Science degree is the standard qualification at TU Darmstadt. We therefore recommend completing a master’s degree.



In numerous branches of industry, the need for software developers has increased sharply in recent years and this trend is continuing. The range of activities is very broad. The job prospects are correspondingly good. For example, information system technology engineers find employment in vehicle or mechanical engineering, in the fields of automation, communication, medical or aerospace technology. They are also employed in the household appliance industry or in the field of entertainment electronics. Generally speaking, information system technology engineers are in demand wherever a coordinated interaction between hardware and software development is required
