In the Master's course IT Engineering at the University of Applied Sciences Wedel in the Hamburg Metropolitan Region, you will acquire advanced skills in computer science and engineering. You will receive further tuition in the fields of algorithmics and dynamical systems. Special emphasis is placed on distributed systems, IT security, medical engineering, robotics, embedded systems, technical optics, and modern production methods. Some courses are electives, so that you can either focus more on computer science or more on systems engineering.
Our Master's programme enables you to carry out scientific work and provides you with deep theoretical and analytical skills. You will acquire techniques that enable you to solve complex problems. You will become acquainted with challenging application fields such as medical engineering and robotics. You will be trained to be eligible for leading positions in a company. If you decide to stay in science, you may pursue a PhD thesis as a following step. The professors of the University of Applied Sciences Wedel will support you in this. At the end of your studies, you will be in possession of an advanced set of skills which can be applied to all application domains and you will have obtained specialised knowledge in some selected application domains.

The University of Applied Sciences Wedel has very close contacts to industry, especially in the Hamburg Metropolitan Region and Northern Germany. The friends association, the Wedeler Hochschulbund e.V. (WHB), gives you another opportunity to bridge the gap between theory and practice. Industrial representatives are integrated into the courses. In IT Engineering, a full module is given by representatives from practice. This guarantees a mutual exchange between science and practice, and our students keep in touch with current trends and challenges.
