Support and advice:




This bachelor’s programme qualifies you to work as a media engineer. You learn
– scientific, technical and informational fundamentals,
– basic principles and in-depth knowledge of audio and video, virtual reality and event technology as well as digital media, particularly digital transformation.
The programme includes media design and cross-media contents and enhances your key competences as well as transferable skills.

It features a broad choice of elective modules during all phases of the programme. You can choose modules from a total of four lists of elective modules. Thus, you can tailor the programme according to your individual specialisation – already from semester 2 onwards.

We offer extensive practical elements during all phases of the programme: e.g. projects or practical trainings at HSD, but also an internship, semester abroad or research semester in the context of the external semester.

Once graduated, you can continue your studies in the consecutive three-semester master’s programme Media Informatics at HSD.
