The Embedded Systems Engineering Master's degree at University of Duisburg-Essen unites two areas that have traditionally been regarded as separate: computer science and communications technology.


Alongside in-depth lectures on electrical engineering, computer science and information technology, special lectures on data processing, information technology and communications networks will allow students to choose their own study path.

Graduates in the Embedded Systems Engineering programme from University of Duisburg-Essen will enjoy promising career prospects in IT managerial roles or the prospect of completing a doctorate in Germany or elsewhere. Graduates therefore typically find themselves working at the interface of communications technology where computer and message technologies meet, putting such technologies to use in the development of new systems and services.

Graduates will:

  • Develop knowledge of advanced theories;
  • Develop advanced knowledge and skills in computer technology;
  • Develop advanced knowledge and skills in messaging and communications technology;
  • Be qualified to integrate the disciplines of computer and messaging technology and will be able to pursue their preference for a commercial or academic career via their choice of electives;
  • Have an enhanced general education with advanced language skills in German or English as well as increased employability from learning team-working and communication skills.
