The Bachelor's Programme

In the Bachelor's Degree Programme in Information and Computer Engineering, you benefit from exposure to internationally recognised lecturers. You will learn how to design, implement and operate complex hardware and software systems in the field of information technology and telecommunications in both national and international contexts. The systems you develop are used, for example, in smartphones, complex industrial plants and automated vehicles.

Since the degree programme combines many aspects of computer science and electrical engineering, various practical courses are offered in which hardware and software systems are heavily referenced. For example, you have the possibility to create a complete operating system or a microcontroller for embedded systems and to apply it in your own projects. You will also gain insights into topics such as the Internet of Things, Industry 4.0, eHealth, automated driving, smart devices and much more.In individual projects and seminars, you will also have the opportunity to tackle a topic intensively over a longer period of time. In addition, you can gain practical experience that will help you in your future career or do a study abroad within the framework of the free-choice courses or work on research projects as part of your bachelor's thesis work.

Focus Areas

In this degree programme, you have the opportunity to focus on the following subjects:

Basics of Information and Computer Engineering: You will learn fundamental technical and scientific information, e.g. in the fields of mathematics, statistics, physics, signal processing and signal transformation.

Electrical and Computer Engineering: You will acquire fundamental knowledge and learn about standard methods used in electrical and computer engineering, such as information about electrical networks, as well as circuit, measurement, digital and communications engineering.

Information Technology: You will learn the basics of computer science, such as software development and data processing, information security and visual computing, and become familiar with operating systems and computer networks.

Humanities and Bachelor’s Thesis Work: You will learn to think in interdisciplinary ways and address economic, social and ethical questions related to the field of Information and Computer Engineering. You will learn how to work scientifically and to write a bachelor’s thesis.

Information and Computer Engineering in Research and Industry

Information technologies and telecommunications are omnipresent and are becoming increasingly important. These range from smartphones to automated vehicles and from apps to medical devices.

The research field is vast, and many innovations can be created within a very short time. Current research projects being conducted in this subject area at TU Graz include:

  • operating systems for the Internet of Things (IoT),
  • processors that can alter their hardware autonomously during operation,
  • sensor technology for automated and autonomous vehicles,
  • localisation and control technology for modern production plants (Industry 4.0),
  • high-frequency technology for mobile and wireless communication,
  • satellite technology,
  • signal processing for voice communication, or
  • security concepts for computer systems.
