The INFOTECH program has been approved by the senate of the University, recognized by the Ministry of Education and Science of the Land of Baden-Wuerttemberg and is system accredited through the accreditation of the University of Stuttgart. It qualifies students for doctoral programs at German Universities. Upon request a personalized confirmation for the accreditation can be issued in case it is needed, e.g. when applying for an educational loan.
The INFOTECH Master Program was launched in 1999. Since then the program has received thousands of applications and garnered around 1000 graduates.
Over 80% of the graduates have achieved an overall average of 'Good' or better on their Master Degree examination. Many of our graduates continue their studies in doctoral degree programs (20% or more) or find employment in research and development (R&D), technical management or business sectors of industrial companies in Germany and around the globe.
INFOTECH is one of the many programs offered by the faculty of Computer Science, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology of the University of Stuttgart.
The faculty offers more than 220 lecture courses for approx. 3000 students taught by 50 professors and 270 scientific staff members.
All lectures of the INFOTECH Curriculum are held in English. Additional courses taught in German can be added. All courses are jointly attended by students from the INFOTECH Master Program and other, German language based, Master's Programs.
More information on the faculty, data and services can be found on the faculty information page.
