Electrical Engineering and Information Technology International (Master of Science)
Start of study program
Winter Semester annually
The IMSEIT program is unique as it is solely taught in English and attracts a truly international audience. From about 1500 applicants worldwide, we only choose the best which makes our program attractive to future senior engineers and managers. IMSEIT emphasizes a systems perspective: Topics and processes, tasks and projects take an integrated and synoptic approach, within an international setting: Course work and projects are conducted in intercultural teams and prepare our students for a career in an international operating company. The content of our lectures is based on the current trends in research and development and covers all relevant fields in electrical engineering and IT. We offer four majors:
- Embedded Systems and Microelectronics
- Power Engineering
Internships and thesis research are completed at companies of international standing either in Germany or, if so desired, worldwide. Additional information on the study program can be found on the website of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology.
The first year focusses on challenging academic content and is organized as classroom lectures. Mandatory modules are shared by all majors, including programming techniques, project management, presentations and communication skills. Due to our strong research performance the latest technology trends are integrated in our major-specific modules, which are complemented by optional modules offering a variety of fascinating topics. The third semester is dedicated to an industrial internship to gain experience within a German company. Students will conclude IMSEIT during the final six months doing their Thesis project in a challenging research-related topic. Specific academic and intercultural pre-semester offerings help students to prepare for the study program. You will find a detailed description of the course contents in the module manual.
Our graduates find well-paid and challenging jobs on all levels and in all sectors of industry, small- and medium-size high tech and international companies, in administration, or self-employed. Interdisciplinary course contents, such as economics or project management, prepare for later leadership responsibilities.
As a prerequisite, a Bachelor’s degree of at least a six-semester academic program in electrical engineering or a closely related field is expected. A clearly discernible motivation with excellent past academic accomplishments in fields relevant to electrical engineering is indispensable. High priority is given to IT experience. The overall impression that the candidate offers, with proven proficiency in English, including technical English, is very important to us. For applicants holding a German bachelor degree the program starts each year in the autumn and spring semester. For international applicants the program starts each year only in the autumn semester. All information needed is available through the website www.eit.h-da.de/mse and is the first point of access, as it provides useful information for potential applicants.
