Joint major of Institut für Hochfrequenztechnik und Elektronik (IHE), Institut für Nachrichtentechnik (CEL) and Institut für Photonik und Quantenelektronik (IPQ)
Information and communcation technology is an important key component in numerous areas of application as, e.g.:
- Medical technology
Graduates of the major Information and Communication are qualified for research and development, technical sales and project management
Today’s communication networks comprise radio transmission as well as wired transmission. Thus, engineers working in the field of communications require interdisciplinary skills. Knowledge on physical properties of mobile communication channels is as important as antenna design, fiber optical channels and components, transmitter and receiver principles, modulation, coding, and protocol stacks.
Therefore education has to contain mathematical and physical fundamentals, RF technologies, electronics, optical components, coding, and digital communications.
Graduates of the major Kommunikationstechnik have numerous options for a successful carrier at service providers, manufacturers of components, user equipment and infrastructure, or consulting. In addition to global players, multiple small or medium-sized companies established, covering different applications within a communication network.
Within major 17 all mandatory courses are taught in English. Thus, students are not only acquiring the theoretical or practical topics taught in the lectures, but also are enabled to pursuing technical discussion in English.
Besides lectures being offered in English, the major provides the opportunity to participate in exchanges programs in which students are spending part of their studies abroad in one of the partner universities (Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya (UPC) / Spanien, Universite catholique de Louvain (UCL) / Belgien, Kungliga Tekniska högskolan (KTH) / Schweden und Politecnico di Torino (PdT) / Italien).
Within the major Kommunikationstechnik students are getting qualified in theoretical analysis, practical aspects, development and application of above-mentioned technologies. Mandatory courses are covering a wide range within the scope of information and communication.
Within their Bachelor and Master theses graduates are contributing on state of the art topics of current research. Close cooperation of IHE, CEL and IPQ offers numerous opportunities so that students are enabled to shape their individual profile. Information on current research topics can be found on homepages of IPQ, IHE and CEL.
