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?
Communications Technology offered by the University of Ulm is a two-year Master of Science Program with a highly research-oriented curriculum teaching from solid fundamentals and state-of-the-art methods to up-to-date content from communications engineering, microelectronics, microwave engineering, and optoelectronics.
The core subjects provide a broad, yet in-depth background aimed at current communications techniques (digital communications and RF engineering). By choosing track-specific compulsory modules, an up-to-date specialization in either Communications Engineering or Communications Circuits and Systems is achieved. Various elective modules from either the communication and information theory side or the field of microelectronics and circuits and systems allow for a study focus according to personal interests. 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 program is taught entirely in English; additional German language classes are part of the program. Communications Technology has a distinct international atmosphere. Since 1998, students from more than 50 different countries on all continents have completed the program. Intercultural competence is thus also an important and natural study goal.
