The University of Klagenfurt offers excellent education opportunities in the areas of information and communication engineering and robotics and AI at the bachelor, master and doctoral levels. Our institute offers lectures, courses, labs, and seminars on all three levels.


Our two three-year bachelor programs in Informationstechnik and Robotics and Artificial Intelligence offer a high-quality university education to train basic skills in mathematics, physics, electrical engineering, and software development. The German-taught program Informationstechnik provides you with a broad education and emphasizes on electronics and circuits, signals and systems, measurement and control engineering, computer and network technology. The English-taught program Robotics and Artificial Intelligence emphasizes on robotics, AI, machine learning, along with circuits, sensors, control, and communications technology.

Our two-year master program in Information and Communications Engineering (ICE) enables you specialize in a field of your choice. The following three study branches (majors) are offered:

  • Networks and communications
  • Autonomous systems and robotics
  • Business engineering (“Wirtschaftsingenenieurwesen”)

Lectures in these domains emphasize the fundamental concepts, techniques, and methods. Accompanying laboratory courses, group work, and seminar discussions provide space for training and deepening the learned material. The technical content can be supplemented by non-technical subjects to broaden your knowledge and to strengthen soft skills. The master program is held in English. The obtained degree is Dipl.-Ing.. A double degree with the University of Udine (Italy) is offered.

As an ICE master graduate, you will be well-equipped to identify and understand novel problems in your field of expertise; improve concepts, techniques, and methods; recognize and participate in technological paradigm shifts; lead development teams and manage complex projects.

The doctoral program is individually tailored to the respective research topic, where supervisors act as guides toward the PhD. Each professor typically supervises five to ten doctoral students. Most of them are employed in research projects or funded by international programs. Students are expected to publish research results in international journals (mainly IEEE and ACM) and present at peer-reviewed conferences.
