Never before in the history of mankind has there been such a rapid growth of knowledge or the related change in information as has been the case in information technologies. Students of the master’s degree programme in Information and Computer Engineering learn how to handle this phenomenon and to adjust to the necessity of independently and constantly keeping their knowledge up to date. For this reason, the curriculum aims to provide a great deal of freedom in choosing the teaching content, and increases students’ independence and initiative in the way they think, decide and act.
The ICE master's programme offers the opportunity to specialise in the following focus areas:
- Secure and Correct Systems
- Computer Vision and Graphics
- Robotics and Computational Intelligence
- Signal Processing and Human Communication
- Communications and Mobile Computing
- Embedded and Automotive Systems
- Measurement and Control Systems
- Microelectronics and IC Design
Information technologies are the bearers and motors of globalisation and the expansion of the English language as the lingua franca of our world. This makes the use of English a natural element of the master’s degree programme in Information and Computer Engineering. Stays abroad are encouraged, international doctoral students are integrated into the field of studies, and professors from the international community enrich the degree programme.
The master's programme ICE lasts four semesters and comprises 120 ECTS credits. The master’s degree is based on the bachelor's programme Information and Computer Engineering or an equivalent bachelor programme of at least 180 ECTS. Graduates are awarded the degree of „Diplom-Ingenieurin“ (female) or „Diplom-Ingenieur“ (male), which is internationally equivalent to a „Master of Science“ („MSc“).
Admissions: To participate in the selection procedure, you must apply online within the admission period.
Exception: Students who have already completed a relevant bachelor's degree at Graz University of Technology or in the framework of NAWI Graz at the University of Graz. Please note the admission deadlines.
Working as an Information and Computer Engineer
ICE graduates work in the fields of independent modelling, design, implementation, operation and assessment of complex hardware and software systems in information technology and telecommunication. Graduates have a broad, detailed and critical understanding of the state of science in several specialised areas.
Career opportunities are diverse as a result of the broad field of activity in computer engineering: in industry, services, public administration, and teaching and research, predominantly in management roles.
