An unimaginable amount of information is available to everyone at any time; technological development is progressing faster and faster. New technologies shape and change our behavior and way of life, conserve resources and multiply our possibilities. Electrical engineering and information technology are the most important key technologies for this.
The master's degree in electrical engineering and information technology offers you eight specialist specializations from which you can choose an offer: electrical energy systems, automation and control technology, intelligent information processing, communication systems, high-frequency technology, intelligent sensors, nanoelectronics and optoelectronics, power electronic technologies and systems. The course offers you a strong research orientation as well as practical exercises in the laboratory. You can also complete part of your studies or research work abroad.
In six of the eight selectable specializations, the number of English-language modules predominates. In this way, you will be optimally prepared for your professional life, because the ability to communicate in English is increasingly required in positions of responsibility.
Degree in a bachelor's degree program lasting at least six semesters (or an equivalent degree)
Degree in the respective course or a course with very similar content
Depending on the course, there may be additional requirements. The exact admission criteria can be found in the admission regulations
Admission with conditions
In the case of admission with conditions, you will be admitted, but you must catch up on certain examinations from the bachelor's degree before you register for the master's thesis. This can be the case, for example, if you completed your bachelor's degree at another university or a university of applied sciences and did not take seminars or modules there that you need for the master’s degree at the University of Stuttgart. The final decision as to whether your professional aptitude is recognized as sufficient is made by the admissions committee .
Graduated from a university of applied sciences
A degree from a university of applied sciences (formerly a university of applied sciences) or the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University basically entitles you to study for a master’s degree at a university, according to the State University Act.
Admission restriction (NC)
In master’s courses in which the number of study places is limited (Numerus Clausus (NC)), ranking lists are created for the allocation of study places based on the criteria that are a prerequisite for admission to the master’s course. The admission regulations for the relevant master’s degree program regulate further details.
Apart from the admission with conditions, there are other variants of admission depending on the subject:
With a degree in electrical engineering and information technology, a large number of doors are open to you. Whether researching new types of problem solutions, developing innovative products, product planning and quality assurance, sales and user support, management consulting, teaching at university level or even working as patent attorneys - our graduates can be employed in practically all branches of industry, services and public service . The career prospects are excellent, as currently and in the foreseeable future not even the basic need for electrical engineers can be met.
