Program Description

Information Technology

SRH University Heidelberg

Master - Information Technology

(School of Engineering)

Wireless communications, cellular TV phone technology, satellite technology, robotics, network technology … these are modern applications of information technology. Are you interested? Then get ready to learn how to convert, store, protect, process, transmit, and securely retrieve information.

To prepare you for your future, we designed the programme “Information Technology”. You will focus on the implementation, support and management of computer-based information systems, particularly software applications and computer hardware but also on Antenna design for mobile and satellite applications.

Your benefits at a glance:

•    Employment opportunities

Software and engineer in the fileds of wireless communications, cellular TV phone technology, satellite technology, robotics and network technology – no matter what your choice is, you will be prepared for a wide range of senior employment opportunities in the information technology industry.

•    Focus on practical use

With a large degree of hands on practical work this is a chance to test yourself on real world technology projects: Get in touch with the navigation of robotics in cooperation with Daimler Benz or take part in the conception and launch of our own satellite “HeidelSat”.

•    Small group work

Just 20 students per semester will have the chance to join our programme. Be one of them!

The focus subjects of this degree programme are within the fields of:

  • Wireless communications
  • Cellular TV phone technology
  • Satellite technology (we are building our own satellite according to the cubesat standard, and plan to launch it in 2012)
  • Robotics (especially in navigation).
  • Network technology

The master degree programme Information Technology is a full time study and bears three semesters (18 months). The students learn in small working groups. The transfer of theoretical knowledge is accomplished within practice oriented projects. The study is carried out in a high independent manner and organized by yourself. The close contact to professors and lecturers makes it possible to settle questions contemporarily. 

Based on the main focus on implementation, support or management of computer-based information systems, particularly software applications and computer hardware we encourage you to take part and to introduce your knowledge in our current projects.
