While Research and Development (R&D) is the field where the majority of MSc Information Technology graduates work (about 2 out of 3), other interesting fields of work can also be found in Developing, Production or Quality Assurance.
With a percentage of 75%, German companies, located either here or abroad, remain the most important employers for both groups of graduates, e.g. ABB, Audi, BASF, BMW, Bopp+Reuther, Bosch, DaimlerChrysler, Freudenberg, John Deere, Pepperl+Fuchs, Roche, SAP, Siemens, T-Systems, Vodafone, and others.
Also renowned non-German employers, such as EADS Paris or Philips, have selected our Master graduates.
Further important potential employers are the various research institutions, for example: the Max-Planck-Institute (MPI), the German Cancer Research Centre (= Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum, DKFZ), the European Media Laboratory (EML), the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL).
Besides research projects, universities in and outside Germany offer the possibility of doing the doctor’s degree (approx. 12%).
Several international MSc graduates today work as lecturers at their original home university.
