Please note: due to internal restructuring, the degree program Systems Engineering and Management - International Program is currently not available.
We offer the Master's degree program Systems Engineering and Management - International Program (SI) in cooperation with the American Rose Hulman Institute of Technology (RHIT). This gives you the opportunity to gather international experience while doing your degree. The course content is very similar to that of the German degree program focusing on Electrical Engineering. The special feature: you will spend part of your course in the USA at the RHIT and, as well as your degree certificate from the Ulm University of Applied Sciences, you will also receive a qualification from a first-class American University.
The three-semester degree program is characterized by its combination of advanced engineering expertise in hardware and software, and commercial skills in, for example, finance and human resources. The experience abroad in the USA and the international Joint Degree qualification will give you special access to internationally-operating companies in the communications and information engineering sector, in industrial automation, the automotive industry and the energy sector.
Do you still have questions about applying? You can find all the answers in the FAQs for online applications.
To apply for the Master's degree program SI you need an above-average qualification in a technically-oriented degree from a German university or a comparable foreign university – with a standard study period of at least three years and course content corresponding to at least 180 ECTS credit points. Furthermore, you should have sound subject knowledge and skills: equivalent to that obtainable at the Ulm University of Applied Sciences in the Bachelor's degree program Electrical Engineering and Information Technology. Other prerequisites are a good knowledge of German and English, as well as successful participation in a selection interview.
If you are not able to provide complete evidence of the knowledge and skills listed above before starting your studies on the Master's degree program, but (due to the quality of your first degree and the result of the selection interview) it is to be expected that you will be able to complete the degree program successfully, you may be admitted: on the condition that you acquire the missing knowledge within one semester.
The course plan for the international Master’s degree program is based
on that of the German degree program focusing on Electrical Engineering. It is
similarly-structured in four subject groups. In the first semester (Summer
Semester) the lectures for these subject groups will be taught in English at
Ulm University of Applied Sciences. The lectures are identical to those for the
German degree program. The lectures for the second semester (Winter Semester)
will be replaced by lectures at the partner university in the USA, which take
place according to the local academic calendar. There, the time is split into
two terms: the Fall Term and the Winter Term.
The degree program is oriented towards the same career aims as the German degree program Systems Engineering and Management – Electrical Engineering. The experience abroad in the USA and the international Joint Degree qualification will give you special access to internationally-operating companies in the communications and information engineering sector, in industrial automation, the automotive industry and the energy sector.
