20 years of iCE – Anniversary celebration

The Information and Communication degree program has now been in existence for more than 20 years. The faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology has set a standard at TU Darmstadt, since it was the first English-language degree programme at this point. We want to take this as an occasion for an anniversary celebration.

Celebrate with us in Darmstadt

The celebration will be held in a hybrid format. The registration has already been closed since we have only limited places. Thank you for registering!

First international degree program at TU Darmstadt celebrates anniversary

The iCE degree program was the first international degree programme at TU Darmstadt more than 20 years ago. A total of 711 students have studied this degree programme to date, and 179 students are currently enrolled. iCE was founded by Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Manfred Glesner.

The Master's program iCE is celebrating its 20th + 1st anniversary at TU Darmstadt, 20 + 1 since last year's celebration had to be cancelled due to the pandemic. The interdisciplinary program appeals to students who already have a Bachelor's degree in electrical engineering, communications engineering or similar disciplines and have high career goals. All four semesters are offered exclusively in English.

In addition to the English language of instruction, the strong international focus is reflected in the diversity of the students' countries of origin: A large proportion of them come from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and China. At 18 percent, the proportion of women is above average for a technical degree programme.

The 30 to 40 graduates each year benefit not only from the good education at the TU, but also from the numerous worldwide connections to industrial partners and academic researchers that have been built up over the years. – Not least because of these contacts, they have the best opportunities for a career in industry and science. Also among the graduates: Some successful start-up founders!
