    Overview Master in Electrical Systems (EIM)

    Highly interdisciplinary and application-oriented, the Master Programme in Electrical Systems enables students to conceptualize, develop and overview complex electro-technological systems. Working in small groups, students become experts in electrical systems engineering by mastering a variety of elective modules, complemented by compulsory modules where students gain in-depth knowledge on the foundations of the field.

    Equipped with a unique and interdisciplinary expertise, mostly working in the area of research and development of complex electronic systems, graduates are greatly qualified to respond to the latest technical challenges and societal issues such as the future of energy supply, autonomous and automated systems, automation and digitalisation of industrial processes.

    Within the electives, students await an extensive choice of interdisciplinary and diverse subjects such as hardware/software integration, communication technology, power engineering, signal processing and control technology.  

    With international guest lecturers as well as the opportunity for a semester or master thesis abroad, students have the opportunity to broaden their experience and skill set even further. A large portion of the master theses are completed within industrial companies or in research projects in the department positioning the student excellently for this innovative and fast-developing professional market.

    Studying in English at the HTWG

    The master degree program EIM requires German language skills although about 30% of the elective courses are taught in English. It is possible to complete the master thesis and project in English. Therefore, there are possibilities and options for exchange students to participate, see our international office for further information.
