Degree Programme Information and Computer Engineering

Bachelor's Degree Programme ICE

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

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.

Master's Degree Programme ICE

After completing the bachelor's degree programme, you can directly enrol in 1 of 3 master’s degree programmes with a total of 18 different majors.

In the master's degree programme Information and Computer Engineering, you will learn the essential theories, principles, and methods applied in information processing and information technology. You will learn how to independently model, design, implement, operate, and evaluate complex hardware and software systems in the IT sector. In specialist areas such as “Visual Computing” or “Embedded and Automotive Systems”, you will learn more about topics that will be of vital importance in the future, such as drones with high-resolution cameras, 3D models for medicine, lane-keeping assist systems, or autonomous driving technology.

This degree programme differs from other degree programmes offered in the IT field in that it has been designed as a generalist graduate programme, i.e. a general education in the subject of information and computer engineering is provided. Thus, by the end of your studies, you will have a broad, detailed, and critical understanding in several areas of specialisation.

Students have access to excellent research infrastructure, which includes:

    Computer labs
    An embedded systems lab (hardware)
    A virtual reality lab: DAVE
    A robotics lab at the Institute of Software Technology: Students work in robotics and have the opportunity to build, control, and program robots.
