Industrial Informatics (M.Eng.)

In the Master's Program in Industrial Informatics you will acquire in-depth knowledge in the application of electrical engineering and computer science: from automation systems to robotics and mechatronics; embedded systems to modeling and visualization; network technologies to safety concepts.

You will complete this master's program with the academic degree Master of Engineering (M. Eng.). For particularly well qualified graduates of industrial informatics, it is possible to take up a doctoral program in cooperation with one of our partner universities.

The master's program Industrial Informatics offers you practical training in the field of industrial applications of electrical engineering and computer science. The carefully selected contents of the study program guarantee you successful entry into fields which are in high demand as a result of the introduction of information technologies in the industrial environment. In addition to the lectures and internships, the advanced projects and accompanying seminars prepare you intensively for independent and scientific work. Often these topics are taken up from current research projects, which are usually carried out in cooperation with companies. This experience will enable you to establish yourself after your studies in the growing, future-oriented job market.

The admission requirement for the consecutive master's program in Industrial Informatics is the completion of the bachelor's program in either electrical engineering or computer science. Other equivalent bachelor's degrees may also be recognized as fulfilling admission requirements after individual examination.

For students of electrical engineering and computer science who have completed a 6-semester bachelor's degree course, a supplementary course of study (30 ECTS) is offered to acquire missing knowledge. According to your previous knowledge and the orientation of your previous bachelor's degree, this program includes modules from the courses of study in electrical engineering and computer science at the University of Applied Sciences Emden/Leer. For students from other universities, the content is determined in consultation with the selection committee for the master's program.

The graduates of the master degree course in Industrial Informatics are qualified in a wide variety of fields of activity, focusing in particular to the following themes:

  • industrial information and communication technologies,
  • automation engineering,
  • robotics and mechatronics.

Due to the increasing importance of these topics in the area of industrial applications and systems, outstanding career opportunities await the graduates. Employers are specifically, the numerous medium-sized companies and industrial companies in Germany and abroad, who create innovative products and services for a rapidly growing market.

The master program itself takes 3 semesters. Together with the bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering  or Computer Science, the consecutive degree program is an entire study period of 5 years.

In the first semester of the masters of Industrial Informatics, the addition of specialist subject areas is necessary, where the acceptance via the bachelor of Electrical Engineering and the bachelor of Computer Science will be differentiated. It is followed by the first deep subject immersion. In the second semester, specific technical themes are further intensified. The course is completed with the master thesis in the third semester.

You will find the required information about the application process and dates, admission requirements and required fees on the DAAD website:

The teaching language for the specialization "Industrial Cyber-Physical Systems” within the Master programme “Industrial Informatics” is English.

All courses in this specialization are taught in English so knowledge of German is not officially required. However, to be able to communicate with people in general a basic knowledge of German is desirable. Introductory German language courses are offered on-campus before or at the beginning of the semester. To be able to select any subject taught in German (e.g. as compulsory optional subject) the language requirement is German B2 (ECTS) or equivalent.

Basic knowledge of Real-Time-Critical Systems and Software Engineering (incl. Programming) is an essential requirement for successful participation in this Master programme.

For international applicants, admission takes place ‘online’ over the UniAssist website:

The number of available places for this program is restricted and a ranking will be made by the admission committee, which takes into consideration the final grade of the previous bachelor degree as well as relevant industrial experience.

If you are successful in the admission, ‘paper’ copies of admission documents are required to be presented to the university on arrival.

The application is online. Link towards the application portal.
