We offer the Master's degree programme 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 programme 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 programme is characterised by its combination of advanced engineering expertise in hardware and software, as well as 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.
To apply for the Master’s degree programme 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 programme 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 stated above before starting your studies on the Master's degree programme, 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 programme 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 programme is based on that of the German degree programme 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 programme.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 2 “terms”, the fall term and the winter term.
The degree programme is oriented towards the same career aims as the German degree programme “Systems Engineering and Management – Electrical Engineering”.However, 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
