One of the hallmarks of the Multimedia Age is the desire to know and to communicate. The dynamic and economic role of knowledge and information at the beginning of the 21st century is identified as a key success factor and driving force of the ever more rapidly increasing global market of Telecommunication, Computer Science and Media Technology. "Communication and Media Engineering (CME)" is tailored to meet the challenges of the Multimedia Age.
The curriculum of the program was developed in a joint effort by the departments of "Electrical Engineering & Information Technology" and "Media & Information Engineering". To our knowledge this is the first time that a postgraduate program combines essential elements of communication engineering with innovative multimedia issues.
The program teaches key qualifications that are indispensable within the dynamic, complex and fast changing environment of information technology. This includes all relevant elements of communication technology in combination with multimedia issues. It is this joint effort that distinguishes our graduates. In addition the program helps students to acquire management skills and social competence within an international surrounding.
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
Guided Wave Simulation Lab
Digital Signal Processing Lab
Digital Image Processing Lab
Client Server Programming
Intercultural Media Design Lab
Interactive Media Lab
All lectures in the CME-course are held in English. Therefore applicants should have a good proficiency in oral and written communication. This needs to be proved by a TOEFL (minimum score: pBT 550, cBT 213, iBT 79-80) or IELTS (minimum 6.0) score report.
Nevertheless a certain knowledge of German is indispensable for every-day life in Germany. When starting the course in October students need to prove that they have achieved a language proficiency in German that is equivalent to the "Grundstufe I" level of the Goethe Institut. This can be done by presenting a language certificate together with the application documents or by participation in the Summer Language Course that is offered by the International Office of the University each September.
If the applicant has aquired some relevant working experience in the field of communication and media technology chances for admission into the program are improved.
