All-pervasive mobile computational power is the ghost in the machine and is colonising all aspects of everyday life. Without it, many tasks we take for granted would be far more difficult or even impossible to carry out. These “intelligent” gadgets and applications function independently of any human agency – truly a miracle of modern life.
Computer-based applications can be found shadowing a vast range of human activity – including systems used in sport, medicine and care of the elderly. And they can also be found in the broader infrastructure of our social lives, in automated control systems for homes and in smart cars that automatically adapt to traffic conditions and even to the fickle moods of the weather. Mobile computing is superseding the desktop paradigm; the future has arrived. It’s a future where you can excel in whatever is your specialist field on our Master’s programme.

The Mobile Computing Master‘s degree builds on the Bachelor’s programme of the same name and continues the tried-and-tested combination of teaching software development, communications technologies and telecommunication engineering. All relevant areas of mobile computing are covered.
The degree allows specialisation in several of the following areas:
- Mobile Communication
- Ubiquitous Computing
- Mobile Infotainment
- Mobile Software Techniques
- Automotive Computing
- Mobile Games
- Ambient Assisted Living/Mobile Health
- Smart Energy
- Logistics

In your chosen focus areas you attend a specific number of core courses and a variable number of specialist modules. Additional interdisciplinary elective courses and seminars are also available; these vary from semester to semester.

Career opportunities

Mobile communications have become the touchstone activity driving the most important and dynamic economic sectors worldwide over the last few years. It is a global business that thrives on innovation and for which our students are thoroughly trained on our “Mobile Computing” (MC) degree programme. In-depth technical knowledge in one or more specialist areas equips our students with the pro-active qualities that underpin leadership/ management positions, and can lead to high-flying careers. There is hardly an area in which Mobile Computing graduates won’t be able to thrive – be it conceptualisation of communications systems, development of mobile phone applications and interactive technologies, the design of a smart home environment or implementation of new mobile services. You will be working in a highly dynamic field with excellent career prospects. Among potential employers keen to hire our graduates are not only mobile communication firms but also multinational corporations, small and middle-sized enterprises and many highly innovative start-up ventures in the IT sector.
