Information and Electronics

Profile of the programme

The communications technology programme is based on the principles of classical telecommunications engineering, which provides the knowledge required for the implementation of modern digital telecommunications and data communications systems, as well as audio and video processing technologies. Laboratories featuring modern equipment, state-of-the-art communications lines, and wireless communications solutions are provided for this:

  • High-frequency radio systems/satellite systems/mobile communications technology
  • Optical wavelength multiplexes (WDM) and free-space optical transmission
  • VDSL and ADSL transmission systems
  • Close-range data communications systems (e.g. ZigBee sensor networks)
  • Audio and image processing systems

This system-oriented training schedule works closely with hard- and software and explains the application of tools for producing models and simulations. Direct contact with industry partners guarantees a high degree of practical relevance throughout the programme.

Areas of application and employment

The direction of study "Information and Electronics" focuses on information processing through electronics. Starting from building understanding of applications from the field of networks and processing of audio, video and other data, this direction deals with the development of the necessary circuits. Modern laboratories with the latest communication solutions and electronics are available for this purpose:

  • High-frequency radio for satellites and mobile radio technology
  • optical transmission
  • sound and image editing
  • Embedded Systems
  • Analogue, digital and power electronics, microelectronics
