Studying at etit?

Studying at etit is demanding. We train students to become responsible, competent engineers. We deal with a wide range of future topics in detail and with a focus on both theory and practice. Our professors teach with a constant eye on innovation potential. In addition, Darmstadt is considered a student city, which means that you can meet a lot of like-minded people here. Here we have summarized some information for you, which should give you a first overview of what we offer.

More reasons to study at TU Darmstadt

  • Wide range of interdisciplinary courses with the possibility of changing majors
  • Above-average possibility to form own focal points: Possibility to develop one's own interests is a good 50 percent above the average of other technical universities
  • unusually high proportion of internships in the basic studies as well as darmstadt-specific practice-oriented project seminars
  • A wide range of international exchange opportunities and double degree programs
  • All compulsory courses and 95 percent of the elective courses are offered online in digital form.

Studying at etit – in a nutshell

The duration of study in a Master's program is usually four semesters. The prerequisite for admission to a Master's program and thus enrollment requirement is a Bachelor's degree in the same program at Darmstadt University of Technology or an equivalent degree.

Different requirements and application procedures apply to external and internal students. You can find more information here.

We can't give you a general idea of where your career will take you after graduation. But there are a few buzzwords that can give you an idea of what might be possible after graduation.

Autonomous (automatic) driving is a central topic of the 21st century with a high demand for new engineers. This is because, in contrast to regular driving, autonomous driving involves several other technologies that you will want to develop and implement:

  • Real-time analysis of the environment (sensor technology),
  • automatic distance control,
  • cloud computing,
  • Data technology

The challenge (and the promise) of the energy transition is to increasingly generate energy from sustainable resources and to design the infrastructure of the energy networks in such a way that they strike the optimal balance between efficiency, availability and maintainability. This calls for engineers who can address the following issues:

  • Renewable energies
  • Energy conversion, storage and use,
  • Climate development
  • Power plant technology

The dovetailing of medicine and technology is currently taking place more intensively than ever before. The question of how engineers in medicine can save lives with innovative ways of treating patients arises all the more in the current mood of awakening for nanocomputers, exoskeletons, prostheses and robotics. And there are other construction sites in medical technology that call for engineers:

  • Image processing
  • Computer-aided simulations
  • Rehabilitation technology and robots
  • Minimally invasive surgery

Because data transmission via the internet is becoming more and more sophisticated and sophisticated, because the transmitted data is constantly increasing in size and variety, and because the internet goes hand in hand with cybercrime, extensive knowledge and expertise is required. Because: network protocols such as TCP/IP or UDP, or communication systems such as Bittorrent, 5G or UMTS are complex matters. In addition, relevant fields of application for engineers:

  • Computer networks
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Cybersecurity
  • Visual computing
  • Soft and hardware architecture
  • Robotics

In the “Job profiles” section above, we have given you some buzzwords to help you understand what you can expect after your studies. The following companies with which we cooperate put these buzzwords into practice:

  • Siemens AG
  • Honda AG
  • Kuka AG
  • Continental AG
  • Robert Bosch GmbH
  • BMW AG

Our Biomedical Engineering Programme is also in cooperation with the following companies:

  • Löwenstein medical GmbH & co. KG
  • Fresenius Medical Care AG & Co. KGaA
  • Dentsply Sirona Inc.
  • Boehringer Ingelheim AG & Co. KG
  • Sivantos Pte. Ltd.
  • Roche AG
  • Abott GmbH

In this course we will give you an overview of the structure of the Master's program and will go into the planning and organization of your studies. In addition, we will explain the main provisions of the examination regulations and their practical implementation. The event is aimed at master's students in electrical engineering and information technology (etit), mechatronics (MEC) and information systems technology (iST). The course is offered at the beginning of the winter semester as well as at the beginning of the summer semester.

You can register via TUCaN.

During your studies, you will have the opportunity to spend time abroad. We recommend that you take advantage of this opportunity, because you can learn a lot (language, culture, contacts) and broaden your horizons. For this purpose, we offer you programmes with about 80 universities worldwide, ranging from simple exchanges to double degrees at our department.
