Alternatively you can choose the Major in Internet of Things.
New: Information Security
As an international leader in the field of information security, TU Graz is placing a new focus on the training of information security experts. You may choose a major or minor in Information Security beginning in the academic year 2020/21.
I study Information and Computer Engineering because it’s extremely exciting being part of new technological developments right from the beginning.
According to the curriculum, graduates of the following bachelor’s programmes offered at TU Graz and University of Graz will be accepted without an admission procedure (in part with with stipulations):
Graduates of all other degree programmes offered at the TU Graz or, in the case of a NAWI Graz programme, the University of Graz, as well as graduates of the programmes listed on www.tugraz.at/fakultaeten/infbio/studies/starting-a-masters, also do not have to undergo the admission procedure. You can apply for admission at the Registration Office.
All other programme applicants must undergo the admission procedure.
Registration period for the academic year 2020/21: 15 October to 15 December 2019
I completed my bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Telematics (now: Information and Computer Engineering) at TU Graz. The Telematics degree programme allowed me to deepen and build on my existing knowledge in the field of computer science (HTL).
I still remember clearly that there was a lot of fundamental information to learn during the bachelor's degree programme, but a great deal of freedom was permitted in the master's degree programme. At the time, I thought that this was a good idea and, thinking back on that time, I can only confirm that. I specialised in the area of biosignal processing and machine learning. After working for a brief period of time in the private sector, I started a doctoral programme at TU Graz, which I am completing now.

More than 50 billion
smart things – objects equipped with microcomputers – are expected to be able to communicate with each other by 2020 via the Internet of Things. This technology opens avenues to countless new applications that will have a huge impact on society. Cars communicate with each other on the road.
Intelligent pipelines locate leaks quickly and cost-effectively. In industrial manufacturing, products and machines communicate with one another, enabling the manufacture of customized products at a low cost, and much more.
One of the biggest challenges being faced is dependability of the Internet of Things. Critical applications in the areas of health, transportation or production always need to function flawlessly, even if they are exposed to disruptive influences and targeted attacks.
By choosing to major in the Internet of Things, based on the Master’s programme
Information and Computer Engineering, you can study this subject through intensive research and specialise in a cutting-edge topic with the highest social relevance.
To complete a Master's degree in Information and Computer Engineering with a major in the Internet of Things, your degree programme must include:
Business, Law, and Management.
Total credits: 120 ECTS
More details can be found in the study plan.
You choose three from the following ten areas for a total of at least 40 ECTS to major in the Internet of Things:
You can find more specific information about the content, courses and mentors in each area here: Overview of the subject areas.
Diplom-Ingenieur(Dipl.-Ing. or DI), equivalent to the Master of Science (MSc)
Admission to the programme is dependent upon the admission requirements of the Master’s degree programme.
IoT is finally here, but as revolutionary as it is, it faces many security challenges. The IoT Major is a great place to start learning about IoT's shortcomings and to gain knowledge and experience to mitigate them. The knowledge you will gain will open the doors for the rapidly growing IoT industry.
The goal is to prepare students to meet the challenges of creating a dependable Internet of Things as well as possible. This requires relaying fundamental information and facilitating involvement in current research. The issues address both hardware and software. The basic intention is to educate students, not train them, since the technology and career fields of the Internet of Things are subject to constant change or are only currently being developed.
