Course content
With the introduction of the new international
Master's programme "Electrical Engineering"
the faculty of Electrical Engineering and
Computer Science has reacted to the ever more
complex challenges in the area of electronic and
information technology in internationally
operating companies.
The Master's programme takes three semesters
and is completely taught in English. The
curriculum aims at covering a broad spectrum
of topics. On the one hand you will learn how to
operate flexibly in a company with dynamic
business requirements and on the other you will
have the opportunity to work right where
challenging and complex topics in electrical
engineering and communication technology
The study is designated for German as well as
foreign applicants. Foreign students are
especially welcomed to our Master's programme

the programme, which is highly regarded by
international companies.
We have established and maintain links and
foreign exchanges with about 80 universities
around the world and we intend to expand
international relations by offering this Master's
As a graduate of our Master of Engineering
programme you will find open doors worldwide,
because aside from the pure technical
qualifications, this programme will also prepare
you for a future leadership position.
The Master's programme "Electrical
Engineering" takes three semesters. It consists
of two semesters of lectures and practicals and
laboratory work, and a third semester primarily
dedicated for completing your Master's thesis.
The course is mostly application-oriented and
very practice-related. Through the choice of the
Compulsory Optional Subjects and the topic of
your Scientific Project as well as the topic of
your Master's thesis you can, to a certain
extent, apply a major to your studies.
The Master's thesis can either be done in a
company in cooperation with a professor from
Kempten University of Applied Sciences or with
a professor from a partnering university. It can
also be conducted in one of the university's
The programme is designed in a way that
students who have completed their Bachelor's
or Diploma degree at Kempten University of
Applied Sciences have the opportunity to
complete their studies in Northern Ireland at the
University of Ulster in semesters two and three
and will receive a joint degree. We are looking
back on more than 15 years of successful
experience in this respect.
Graduates of the German "Diploma programme"
of Electrical and Telecommunication
Engineering have the opportunity to skip one
theory semester with a formal acceptance

Course objectives
The large spectrum of study topics enables you
to familiarise yourself quickly with any new
assignments within the field of electrical and
telecommunication engineering but also to dive
deeper into specific areas.
There are numerous areas for you to work in:
research and development as well as
production, planning, operation and
management. The degree "MEng" may enable
you to get a high level employment in
governmental organisations. The typical areas
in which graduates of this programme go on to
work in are: energy generation, -transmission, distribution, and application, electrical drives &
automation technology, mechatronic systems,
electronics, micro computer technology,
communication technology, microwaves and
high frequency technology just to name a select
The majority of employment opportunities for
Master graduates is in the electrical industry.
Electronic products and systems and therefore
jobs, are also found in other areas, like
mechanical engineering - e.g. the automobile
and aircraft industry, power tool industry and
robotics etc. - but also in building technology
management as well as in the general medicine
& hospital area; e.g. a promising discipline AAL
(ambient assisted living) is currently being
The title "MEng" allows you to apply for a PhD
programme at any German or foreign university.
As a graduate of the Master's programme
"Electrical Engineering" you have a notably
improved competitive advantage over other
Bachelor's graduates. Because of your advanced
subject matter expertise along with your flexible
field of application, you will enjoy tremendous
career opportunities.
