Study Planning

Studying can be a challenge not only in terms of content, but also in terms of organisation. The department of etit supports you in mastering these challenges. Here you will find an overview of all advisory and information services as well as a download area for all important documents that support you in planning your studies.

Information about the upload of the Examination plans and the module handbooks

Please note that the upload for the summer term 2023 is delayed.

However, in the next weeks, there will be versions of all Examination plans and module handbooks of the Examination regulations 2014 AND the new Examinations regulations 2023.

Information on the transition PO2014 - PO2023

From the winter semester 2023/24, first-year students will be enrolled in the new examination regulations (PO 2023). Here we inform students in the previous examination regulations (PO 2014) about all important topics concerning the new examination regulations.

Our academic advising team offers assistance with any questions you may have about our degree programmes.

From your 3rd semester onwards, you can choose a specialisation in your degree programme. The specialisation helps you to specialise in a certain field of your studies. Different specialisations are available depending on the degree programme.

In the “Downloads” section you will find the study plans for all specialisations as well as an overview of all modules that can be taken.

Automation Systems are concerned with the development and implementation of processes and machines that perform certain operations without any need for human involvement. Important core topics in the field of Automation Systems include control engineering, process control systems and robotics.

Today, applications for automation systems can be found in nearly all technical fields, plants and products.

The focus area Computer Engineering offers a solid but broad knowledge in the usage of computer networks, CAD-systems and industrial-oriented software development frameworks. A modern and industry-oriented education towards todays needs within information technology is offered. Specialized lectures and seminars, also in close cooperation with the department of informatics at TU Darmstadt, enable the education of software-engineering with a special focus on embedded (real-time) systems.

Computer Engineering is employed in wide-ranging fields of application, such as automotive systems, aerospace, medical engineering or communication industry.

Computer-Aided Electrodynamics (CED) is concerned with the application of the universally valid Maxwell equations to specific practical problems with the aid of simulation programmes. In this focus area, students are therefore taught numerical methods of electrical engineering in theory and practice.

Computer-aided simulation is employed today in all fields of electrical engineering and is therefore considered a third pillar alongside theory and experimentation.

Electrical Power Engineering is highly versatile and covers all issues relating to the generation of electricity, power distribution and consumption. There are numerous interfaces between electrical power engineering and other technical specialisms and topics. In addition, IT, politics, business and other fields are becoming ever more relevant.

The application field of electrical energy supply is of fundamental importance for modern societies. In the context of the energy transition, there are many exciting challenges in which you can participate.

Communication and Sensor Networks is concerned with the recording, processing and transmission of electromagnetic, acoustic and other signals. The main objectives are to extract as much useful information from the recorded signals as possible and to transmit this information as quickly, reliably and energy-efficiently as possible.

Communication and Sensor Networks plays a leading part in a whole host of fascinating applications and important key technologies, including

  • mobile internet,
  • satellite navigation technology,
  • radar or laser technology,
  • medical engineering and bioinformatics,
  • the technology for intelligent power supply networks,
  • mobile phone and sensor networks,
  • data compression and encryption,
  • digital image, video, and information processing,
  • the massive processing and linkages of information within social networks

Sensors, Actuators and Electronics are no longer separatable functional units, but are functional and special tightly integrated. The design of such a system without excellent knowledge of the functional and physical properties of the sensors/actors, as well as of the physical readout and associated signal-conditioning by analog and digital electronics is no longer possible.

In literally all fields of engineering complex sensor, actor and electronics based systems are present, such as automotive, industrial control and medical engineering, e.g. airbags, precision positioning systems, surgery and diagnostics tools.

B.Sc./ M.Sc. MedTech: Important information for participation in all module courses at the Frankfurt-Niederrad Campus (Frankfurt University Hospital)

Information on measles protection according to the German Protection against Infection Act (Infektionsschutzgesetz)

Measles protection according to the Infection Protection Act has been in effect since March 2020 and is mandatory for all students at the Niederrad Campus. This means that you must provide us with proof of your measles protection in order to attend courses.

The aim of the law is to improve individual protection against measles, especially for people who regularly come into contact with others in healthcare facilities. Thus, in the medium to long term, the global goal of the WHO is to completely eliminate measles. More information on this can be found on the pages of the Federal Ministry of Health.

People are considered protected if they have received two measles vaccinations in their lifetime or have serologically proven immune protection.

Please contact your family doctor in this regard. The measles vaccination is usually covered by the statutory health insurance as a catch-up vaccination.

For this purpose, please have your family doctor fill out the measles vaccination form (opens in new tab) and then send it to the following e-mail address:
