Automation & IT (Master's program)
Graduates of the interdisciplinary Master's program in Automation & IT have excellent prospects on the labor market, not least due to the fact that the language of instruction is English. The program combines two fields of knowledge: Information technology and automation. Graduates are qualified to fill executive positions, especially in internationally operating companies.
Automation & IT: Interdisciplinary and International
Since information technology and automation are gradually becoming one single field of knowledge, the Master's program in Automation & IT was launched at Cologne University of Applied Sciences. It is an interdisciplinary program tailored to students with prior knowledge in the field. The language of instruction is English, fostering the students' individual competency development just as much as the intercultural exchange with students from Asia or the Americas.
