About

The international Master's degree program in Communication and Media Engineering (CME) is tailored to meet the challenges of the multimedia age. Developed in 1998 by the departments of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology and Media and Information Engineering, it combines essential elements of communication engineering with innovative multimedia issues. The curriculum has been continuously updated to modern needs and continues to successfully combine these two fields.

Programme Structure

During the first semester, instruction is mostly provided via lectures; while the second and third semesters active and creative participation is required. Students should be able to learn and study independently. A large number of lectures are accompanied by laboratories.

This provides a venue to immediately apply the theoretical knowledge. One essential part of the program is the project work; in the third semester, students are required to work in intercultural teams and apply the project management methods they have learned. The fourth semester is reserved for the Master Thesis which can be done at either a company or within the university.

A "lab work" is the realization of experiments in modern, well-equipped labs. It is supposed to put theoretical knowledge into practice by doing experimental work. Lab works are part of the corresponding modules.

Lab Works include

Object Oriented Software Development Lab
VLSI Lab
Microwave Lab
Guided Wave Simulation Lab
Digital Signal Processing Lab
Digital Image Processing Lab
Photonics Lab
Client Server Programming
Web Applications
Intercultural Media Design Lab
Database Lab
