Electrical Engineering, Information Technology and Computer Engineering M.Sc.: Curriculum Outline

 

Each study program comprises three semesters of lectures, tutorials and lab courses, along with an industrial internship of at least 18 weeks and a final master thesis in the fourth semester.

In total, the program amounts to 120 ECTS credits.

The study programs are built up of three main module groups, each containing a list of required elective courses. The curriculum is complemented by a broad offer of laboratories, project works and seminars. In addition, there is an area of eligible courses which comprises the full master program of the faculty, hence including courses from all study programs.

Finally there is an area of free elective courses from the entire RWTH course program, including language courses, courses in economy, law or soft-skill courses and block lectures.
