Of course I was sceptical at first about being able to study on top of working, but I now see it is possible, thanks to online lectures, supervision by the teaching staff, and being able to exchange knowledge with fellow students during university attendance periods.
Information and Communication Technology,
This part-time programme offers professionals with a university entrance qualification the opportunity of gaining further training. Course contents are focused on the requirements of modern telecommunications, including management aspects. Using the latest education technologies and creating classroom environments based on web 2.0 applications enables students to study while working.
Media Design is a combination of mathematics, physics, information technology, and electrical engineering. These fields supply the knowledge needed to create systems for transferring information across various media. Key elements of this course include: communication media, signal processing, and communication processes.
In addition to meeting the requirements set out by the Deutsche Telekom Group, the Information and Media Design curriculum covers business administration contents for project and sales engineers.
Employability and Careers
There are many careers for Information and Media Design graduates to pursue. Development engineers address technical issues and create efficient IT solutions and continuously optimize their products. Project engineers design and operate telecommunications equipment and facilities. They manage the projects and ensure that the customer demands are met. Sales engineers are in charge of planning and managing complex telecommunications marketing and sales processes. Key activities in their work also include marketing research and competitive intelligence.
An important term used in telecommunications is “convergence”, which is the merging of voice and data services in mobile and fixed network infrastructures, an area requiring specialists for management and capacity planning. After all, networks must be developed in a way that guarantees they will fulfil the needs of the future. Our graduates also work in operating and servicing telecommunications facilities, in purchasing, logistics, training and professional development, marketing, and sales.
Telecommunications is everywhere, which is why our graduates’ expertise is also needed in medical, automation, and automotive engineering.
