In the recent years, the topic of digital transformation in companies and the needs of qualified employees has developed rapidly. In the context in digital transformation, companies face the challenge of qualifying their employees as an "enabler" at the interface of business and IT.
In the new Master Program in Information Systems Engineering and Management, IT specialists and computer scientists as well as business administrators and engineers will be enabled to advance internal and external digitalization and to assume leadership functions, especially in the field of digital transformation of companies.
The content of the Master Program is divided into 10 modules:
5 Management Modules presents broader knowledge in management know-how and 5 Engineering Modules provides deeper knowledge in technological topics.
We offer a free Crash Course "Probability and Statistic” (taking place from November 13 to November 14, 2020) and highly recommend to participate in the course to update the technical knowledge, as it might be the crucial factor for a successful degree at HECTOR School.
Process and Knowledge Engineering
Security and Privacy Engineering
Crash Course: "Probability and Statistics" (preparatory modules)
Applying: The application process will be proceeded as usual with some hygiene requirements: personal interviews will take place online for the moment.
Studying: Currently, we assume that the next intake will start regularly in October 2020.
In any case you can be sure that we will keep you updated and you will receive the excellent quality you can expect from HECTOR School and the KIT.
In the new Master Program in Information Systems Engineering and Management, Line of Business representatives with business or engineering background as well as IT specialists will be enabled to advance internal and external digitalization and to assume leadership functions, especially in the field of digital transformation of products, services, and organizations.
Enabler of Digital Transformation can have positions like:
Information/ Communication Technology Manager
IT Coordinator / IT Consultant
IT Service Manager / IT Integration Manager
Engineers e.g. in Product Development, Production
all industries effected by the digital transformation
specializations enable new opportunities for e.g.: IT, telco, automotive, consulting, production, logistic, finance, media, Trading, public as well as health sector.
The ongoing digitalisation of economy, industry and society is increasing the demand for skilled workers. Various fields of activity are opening up in high-tech industry, manufacturing companies, small and middle-sized companies as well as IT start-ups and service companies, especially with regard to digital services and industry 4.0.
“It was important for me to concentrate 100% on practice and my studies. Thanks to the block phases offered by the HECTOR School, I can be fully involved in both the project and the university.”
The Master Program is splitted in 5 Engineering and 5 Management Modules of 2 weeks, each over a period of 15 months. The modules are followed by a master thesis written in the company (ISEM: 6 months) and often used as a innovation project for the company. The overall duration is approx. 20 months.
The HECTOR School modules take place in Karlsruhe on the campus of the International Department. It contains seminar rooms, accommodation facilities and is situated directly next to the KIT campus and in the center of the city.
The HECTOR School offers top-level teaching derived from state-of-the-art research at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). Numerous institutes and departments of the KIT are involved in the HECTOR School Master Programs ISEM:
