The international Master of Science Programme in Communication and Information Technology offered by Ulm University provides you with the advanced qualifications necessary to develop the infrastructure and devices of the future, where wireless and fibreoptic networks become ever faster, and evermore ubiquitous.


The desire to communicate facts, ideas and emotions is central to human existence everywhere. Communications technologies shape our increasingly global societies, and deeply impact our daily lives.

Successful applicants will have a Bachelor of Science or comparable degree in Electrical Engineering or a closely related field with a significantly above-average grade, be fluent in English and have a strong motivation to work in a challenging multicultural environment.

What is this course about?

Communication and Information Technology offered by Ulm University is a two-year Master of Science Programme with a highly research-oriented curriculum, teaching from solid fundamentals and state-of-the-art methods to up-to-date content from wireless communications, signal processing, optical communication devices, integrated circuits, RF engineering, sensor principles, machine learning and embedded systems.

Core subjects as well as various specialisation modules provide a broad, yet in-depth background aimed at the above areas and allow for a study focus according to personal interests. By choosing specific modules, an up-to-date specialisation in either Communications Engineering, Communications Circuits and Systems, Intelligent Embedded Systems or Sensor Circuits and Systems is achieved. Lab courses provide practical training in experimental and simulation methods, while the half year Master’s thesis (6 months, full-time) gives a thorough exposure to doing research on current topics in one of the school’s highly active and well-funded research groups.

The programme is taught entirely in English; additional German language classes are part of the programme. Communication and Information Technology has a distinct international atmosphere. Since 1998, students from more than 50 different countries on all continents have completed the programme. Intercultural competence is thus also an important and natural study goal.
