Who is the program aimed at?

The most important prerequisites are enthusiasm for technology and logic as well as a healthy thirst for knowledge. You want to apply your knowledge to a concrete context right away and use it hands-on.

Enjoying applied mathematics, physics and computer science is of course also very helpful. Do you like to get to the bottom of things and think in a solution-oriented way? Congratulations, you've come to the right place with the specialization in Information Technology! Why not apply right away

A student talks about his experiences

Deniz Braun: The wide range of lectures is what I especially like about the Information Technology specialization. For basic studies, the mathematical and electrotechnical fundamentals are covered, and information technology is further explored in the course of the program. As the world becomes more and more interconnected, there is a need to process the ever-increasing flood of information. Whether in our professional life or in our leisure time. Information technology accompanies us in all areas of life and therefore, when graduating, you also have the choice to work in many different industries.

A graduate talks about his experiences

Philipp Fetzer: The degree gives you access to an incredibly broad choice of career fields. In my opinion, you don't just acquire the skills to pursue a demanding engineering profession - because this one engineering profession doesn't exist. As an engineer in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology you are not tied down, you still have a high degree of freedom to decide where your career path leads. And if you ever want to change your career it's much easier to leave the path you've chosen.
