Industrial Informatics (M.Eng.)

In the master's program Industrial Informatics, you will gain advanced knowledge in the field of application of electrical engineering and computer science: from automation systems to robotics and mechatronics, from embedded systems to modeling and visualization, from network technologies to security concepts.

You will graduate from this master's program with the academic degree Master of Engineering. Particularly qualified graduates of Industrial Informatics have the opportunity to pursue a doctoral degree in cooperation with one of our university partners.

The master's program Industrial Informatics offers you a practical education in the field of industrial applications of electrical engineering and computer science. The carefully selected content of the program ensures a successful entry into fields that are in high demand due to the integration of information technologies in the industrial environment. In addition to lectures and internships, the advanced specialization projects and accompanying seminars prepare you intensively for independent and scientific work. These topics often stem from current research projects, which are typically conducted in cooperation with companies. This allows you to establish yourself sustainably in the growing, future-oriented job market after completing your studies, well-equipped with skills and knowledge.

The entry requirement for the consecutive master's program Industrial Informatics is a bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering or a bachelor's degree (7 semesters / 210 ECTS). Other equivalent bachelor's degrees may be recognized as entry requirements after individual assessment.

For students who have completed a 6-semester bachelor's program, a supplementary program is offered to acquire missing knowledge, totaling 30 ECTS. Depending on your prior knowledge and the focus of your previous bachelor's degree, this program includes modules from the study programs at Hochschule Emden/Leer. For students from other universities, the content is determined in consultation with the selection committee for the master's program.
