possible throughout the year
The Master's programme in Technical Cybernetics and Systems Theory (TKS) is consecutive and research-oriented. It builds on a basic research-oriented Bachelor's degree in Technical Cybernetics and Systems Theory.
The degree in Technical Cybernetics and Systems Theory or in an equivalent course of study is assessed with 50 points in the aptitude test for admission. For comparable degrees, e.g. in technomathematics, 40 points are awarded, for related degrees, e.g. in electrical engineering and information technology, engineering informatics, mathematics or mechatronics, 30 points are awarded. Other degrees are awarded 20 points. In addition to the present degree, the grades in important sub-subjects or modules and the final grade achieved are also included in the evaluation.
The focus of the master's program is on the acquisition of advanced systems engineering and systems theory knowledge in the form of methods for the description, analysis, control and optimization of nonlinear, discrete-event and hybrid system models of dynamic processes. A course programme jointly offered by engineers and mathematicians promotes an intensive research orientation and at the same time qualifies students for professional research practice.
Optional courses according to the specialisation (e.g. event-discrete systems, hybrid systems, adaptive and structure-variable control systems, communication and bus systems, diagnostic and predictive systems, system theory)
