Job market and prospects

Germany is one of the world's most export-oriented countries, especially in fields that require IT Engineering. Hosting Europe's second busiest seaport as well as several global players such as Airbus, Hapag-Lloyd, Philips, and Lufthansa, the Hamburg Metropolitan Area offers excellent work opportunities in an international setting, even at entry-level. This particularly applies to jobs that your master's degree in IT Engineering qualifies you for.

Engineers with dedicated IT skills are highly sought after in the automotive sector, the aerospace industry, medical engineering, automation, and a great variety of other sectors in technological production. Graduates will be able to choose whether they want to be involved in the production of large technological objects such as sea vessels, or small devices such as mobile phones. They can also freely choose the size of their employer - from global corporations to garage shops.

The programme's contents

In our master's programme IT Engineering, you will acquire advanced skills in computer science and engineering. During the winter semester you will receive further tuition in the fields of dynamical systems, distributed systems, embedded systems, and medical engineering. During the summer semester you will have the choice between more computer science-oriented subjects, such as algorithmics and IT security, and engineering subjects, such as technical optics and modern production methods. Other possible choices are robotics, which combines computer science and engineering, and business intelligence, which will let you gain leadership competence. You are free to choose which subjects you want to focus on - computer science, engineering, or both.

At the end of your studies you will possess an advanced skill set which can be applied to all application domains. You will also have obtained specialised knowledge in some selected areas of application.
