Overview of dates and deadlines

The degree program

The Master's programme in Electrical Engineering trains students with specific expertise in key areas of Microelectronics Design and Communication systems including theoretical foundations, practical skills and knowledge about application areas in Analogue and Digital Integrated Circuits, Semiconductor Physics, Photonics, Embedded Systems, Digital Communications and High-Frequency engineering.

Students must select one of the two specialisations offered in English – Electronics Design and Technology (EDT) or Communication Engineering. The EDT covers Microsystems and Integrated Circuit design. In both themes, students will gain in-depth knowledge and can choose from a wide-ranging catalogue of modules. Three quarters of the course will be the final masters thesis.
In addition, the department also offers a specialisation on “Automatisierungstechnik” which is offered in German. For further details, please refer to the German language version of this website.

Electronics Design and Technology Specialisation

This specialisations trains students in the design of micro and nano electronics devices and circuits. VLSI Integrated Circuits and photonic systems have revolutionised our lives with low cost, high performance and powerful computing and sensing devices becoming omnipresent, in form of handheld computers like mobiles and laptops as well as high-end computing and AI systems. This course trains engineers in advanced design, build and test of electronic components required for these developments. They gain diverse experience ranging from cleanrooms fabricating nanoscale electronic devices to designing IC in state-of-the-art software to developing Photonic systems.

Communication Engineering Specialisation

Communication is vital to our continued interconnected world and our lives have come to depend to secure, sustained and rapid communication. This specialisation trains students in theoretical as well as practical skills for analysis and design of a diverse range of communication systems as well as components required to build them.


Admission requirements

1) Anyone who has successfully completed the Bachelor's degree program of electrical/electronics engineering or equivalent with a solid basis in the area of the chosen study focus or an equivalent first degree qualifying for a profession.

2) In special exceptions, the relevant examination board will decide on a case-by-case basis.
The examination regulations relevant at the time shall apply.


Study organization

Examination regulations/degree plan/module manuals/internship rules

Examination regulations (POs) specify the basic structures of a degree program (e.g. admission requirements and contents to be studied). Students are automatically subject to the current version of their PO when they matriculate for their first subject-related semester. This means that even if the PO changes during their studies, the original version according to which they matriculated will remain valid (provided that the PO does not expire).
The respective degree plan is the recommended example progress of the studies in individual subjects and is part of a PO.
Supplementary provisions and details for any module to be studied can be found in the module manually (e.g. requirements for taking a written test or content-related information on the modules/events, ...). The internship rules define the conditions under which the required or optional internships must be completed.

We recommend at least looking at the study schedule for your degree program before the lecture time starts, to ensure that you know which modules are intended for the start of your studies.
