    In the second semester, courses and labs are held on the topics of Communication, Circuits and Systems, Signal Processing, Advanced Control Systems, and Embedded Computing.

    The third semester is mainly dedicated to the Master's thesis. Furthermore, the subject Embedded Control is scheduled for this semester.


    Not applicable

    Forms of assessment

    • Written examinations (60 or 90 minutes), oral examinations in exceptional cases only
    • For labs, projects, and the Master's thesis: written report and/or viva voce


    Language requirements

    Very good knowledge of the English language, minimum requirements: TOEFL iBT 70 or IELTS Band 6.0

    Academic requirements

    Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering, Communications Engineering, Automation, or Power Engineering with a minimum of 210 ECTS credits. Graduates from three-year Bachelor programmes (180 ECTS credits) can be considered provided they meet additional requirements.

    60% of the places available will be allocated on the basis of the GRE Revised General Test results. This means that only applicants that have taken the GRE test will be considered for this quota.

    40% of the places available will be allocated on the basis of the final grade of the Bachelor's degree as well as the results in mathematics and other relevant subjects. Applicants who at the time of application have not yet obtained the Bachelor's degree will be ranked according to their current GPA. The final grade or the GPA, respectively, can be improved by providing proof of relevant work experience or research activities.

    Enrolment fees

    147.50 EUR per semester

    Costs of living

    In order to obtain a visa for Germany, international students must prove that they have a minimum of 735 EUR per month at their disposal (minimum 8,820 EUR per year). The same financial requirements apply for an extension of the residence permit approx. one year after the student's arrival. Monthly rent in dormitories amounts to approx. 300 EUR. Contribution to health insurance, which is compulsory in Germany, amounts to approx. 82 EUR per month.

    Job opportunities

    Foreign students registered at universities in Germany can take on jobs without an approval requirement provided that this work does not exceed 120 full days or 240 half days in total in a calendar year. Jobs as research or student assistants can also be performed without an approval requirement and without any time limits.
    However, finding jobs in companies or at the university is not easy. Applicants should also be aware of the fact that university studies are highly demanding and might not allow enough time to take on a job at the same time. International students should therefore not plan to finance their stay in Germany by earning money while studying.

    Funding opportunities within the university

    In their final year of study, students in need of support can apply for a so-called Matching Funds Scholarship (details: International Office).

    Arrival support

    Senior students help newcomers on arrival (Buddy Programme, see below). Formalities are dealt with in the Welcome and Orientation Programme organised by the International Office (second week of September), see below.

    Services and support for international students

    • Buddy Programme: Senior students, both German and international, help newcomers on arrival and throughout the semester. The so-called "buddies" are ready to answer questions even before the new students arrive.
    • One-week Welcome and Orientation Programme in September: Dealing with formalities (registration at the university and in the community, health insurance, bank account, computer accounts, etc.) and exploring the region
    • German language courses: Two weeks intensive course in September, 4 hours/week during the lecture period, both at different levels
    • Welcome Brochure: Relevant information regarding studying and student life for all new international students
    • Numerous one- or two-day excursions throughout the semester
