ERASMUS and International Incoming Students

Courses available in English for Exchange Students of the Degree Programme Information Technology and Systems Management

Incoming exchange students are basically flexible in their selection of courses (units). You can choose from all levels as long as it is guaranteed that you fulfil the prerequisites for the selected course. As a rule, bachelor students usually take the courses at the bachelor level, but can take courses in the master programme, if they come from a more specialised programme and thus have the appropriate level of skills.

In case of doubt, please contact the International Coordinator of the programme. You can also choose from the courses listed below from the Master programme Applied Image and Signal processing.

Please note that courses are offered only either in the winter (= end of September to end of January) or the summer semester (= end of February to June).
