M.Sc.

Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (M.Sc.)


What degree programme is on offer?

The Master’s degree programme is the second stage of the two-tier Bachelor’s/Master’s system. The M.Sc. (etit) follows on directly from the B.Sc. (etit) and takes four semesters. It leads to a Master of Science degree which is equivalent to the traditional title of “Diplom-Ingenieur”.

The research-related Master’s programme will extend your knowledge of the focus area you chose in your Bachelor’s programme. Application-oriented contents will constitute a core feature. By integrating students in ongoing research the programme’s emphasis on practical applications is increased. The following focus areas are available:

In addition to purely subject-specific contents, the programme also encompasses a comprehensive range of elective, trans-disciplinary courses in Engineering and the Natural Sciences as well as non-technical and non-scientific subjects.

etit Master’s graduates have excellent future prospects, whether they aim to assume highly skilled positions in industry, or to develop their emphasis on research by pursuing a doctorate.

An M.Sc. from TU Darmstadt qualifies you unconditionally to embark on doctoral studies.
