This course combines rapidly growing engineering fields, each one of them of increasing economic and technical importance and gaining influence in all areas of everyday life:

  • Microsystems Engineering
  • Measurement & Instrumentation
  • Communication Systems Engineering

This postgraduate degree course aims at providing further qualifications at high level regarding knowledge and methods in the respective scientific areas of the following key technologies of the 21st century:

  • Microelectronics, microsystems, materials and laser micro-processing
  • Automated test and measurement, signal processing, optical technologies, laser systems and measurement instrumentation
  • Wireless-, satellite-, underwater- and fibre optic communication systems and networks

The faculty offers an excellent education in these fields in a laboratory environment with state-of-the-art high-tech equipment. Instruction in small groups combined with project-oriented laboratory work create a stimulating learning environment.

Cooperative projects with partners in relevant companies as well as research and development projects in our own laboratories guarantee an extensive training in engineering skills as well as business studies and soft skills, promoting your career in industry and science.

The programme is postgraduate in nature and leads to the degree Master of Science (M.Sc.) in the specific course profile selected by the candidate.

Career Prospects

After completing the degree course, you have been trained to do independent and self-directed work and to be able to apply knowledge in a new professional environment related to the field of study. You have acquired the competence required for project management and have the ability to work in an interdisciplinary, international team. This training qualifies you for working in applied engineering research and development, as well as for a leading position in industrial project planning and realization. Graduates will have excellent job opportunities and a promising career development in nationally and internationally operating companies and in engineering research institutes. This accredited course (AQAS, System Accreditation) qualifies for German higher civil service in administration, engineering and research and development.

Curriculum

The organisation of the program allows a specialisation in one of the following fields, called course profiles:

  • Microsystems Engineering
  • Measurement & Instrumentation
  • Communication Systems Engineering

The respective course profiles focussing on one of the three engineering fields are modularized. Credits according to the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) are allocated to each module. The course involves a total student work load of 90 credits for three semesters. It consists of two taught semesters, followed by one semester reserved for the Master’s Thesis. Thesis work can be completed in industry or in the university laboratories.

The course comprises three categories of modules, i.e.

  • engineering core modules: compulsory modules, specific for each course profile;
  • economics and language modules: these are relevant for all three profiles;
  • engineering required optional modules: these are combined to define the individual course profiles.

In general, the modules comprise lectures with integrated exercises in small groups, seminars, laboratory work and projects/case studies. Assessments are usually at the end of each semester.

For the two taught semesters, the workload of 60 credits is distributed as follows:

  • Engineering modules, 48 credits
  • Non-technical modules (economics and/or language), 12 credits

Modules are selected within the limits listed above, and they must be completed successfully to obtain the indicated credits. The modules are subject to availability, development in engineering disciplines and changes in the educational concept.

Language of instruction is English, language modules are offered as part of the curriculum. An academic advisor assigned to each student will assist in selection of modules and provide general academic guidance.

Research Activities

Most research projects are carried out in close cooperation with regional industry or research institutions. Research related to topics covered by our Master programme Electronics Engineering is mainly linked to activities of three institutes at Hochschule Bremen.

Within each area there are state-of-the-art laboratories, equipped with modern, powerful scientific tools. Several professors and engineers are permanently available in the institutes for teaching, research and development. Furthermore, there are scientific staff members working in research projects on a temporary basis.
