Media Engineering

Do you have an interest in technology – and do you also like design? Virtual reality, apps for smartphones and tablets, gesture control, websites, computer graphics, games, audio-visual technology... how do they work?

The Media Engineering degree programme will provide you with the expertise to develop your own applications in these areas. Alongside the general technical foundation, it is also possible to study individual topics in more depth. In addition, the relevant elements of design will be imparted, since design and usability are almost as important as the underlying technology nowadays.

Special features:
  • The degree programme concentrates on the technical fields that are relevant for the implementation of current topics in relation to new media. In order to achieve this, students will be taught the relevant aspects of computer science and software development.
  • However, the course is not limited to computer science; we also teach engineering-based topics such as audio-visual technology and a significant portion of the degree programme is dedicated to providing a foundation in design.
  • Unlike degree programmes that primarily focus on existing systems, the Media Engineering degree programme explains the technology behind those systems and equips students with the ability to develop such systems themselves.
  • In laboratories and studios fitted out with cutting edge equipment, students have access to all of the devices and software systems they will need to develop state-of-the-art technical solutions.
