General Information

Profile of the Master Program 'Computer Engineering'

The educational objective of the master program 'Computer Engineering' is to qualify students for a research or development oriented professional career in the field of Computer Engineering as well as for participation in PhD programs.

The students should get a thorough understanding of possible approaches and solutions and should be able to assess their advantages and drawbacks so that they can chose a good solution for a given problem.

Students can choose one of three specializations, which are sub-fields of ‘computer engineering’ ('Application Specific Computing', 'Microelectronics', 'Robotics, Haptics & Biomechanics'). Each specialization consists of a set of modules on an advanced level which cover the field to a large extent.

After having completed the research phase (seminar, student research project, master thesis), students have obtained the ability to do research independently, to document and publish research work. They deepen their knowledge on scientific methods, information engineering, hardware and software, interdisciplinary system thinking, experience in practical applications as well as the communication competence and the ability to work in teams.


There are a lot of discussions wether a master class in Germany should be held in English to invite foreign students. We are happy to welcome students from abroad, nevertheless we decided to hold the lectures mostly in German: for the German majority of students, this simplifies understanding and participation. Most foreign students being in Germany are learning German and need to practice. Having lectures in English is in many cases (in particular for non English native speakers) a significant double effort with permanent switching between English and German. In order to help foreign students with still modest German knowledge

  • all teachers speak English so that questions and answers can also be given in English,
  • important documents like the module description (or this web site) are available in English,
  • examinations can be held in English on student request and
  • the course documents are (/will be) mostly in English.
