Information and multimedia technology have experienced a rapid, innovative development over recent years and have reached high economic importance on a global scale. These advances are essentially founded on theoretical achievements on the basis of highly complex, modern mathematical tools. This results in extraordinary requirements on researchers with respect to background and flexibility. Therefore, information and multimedia technology are well suited for promotion of academic elite in particular.


This program extends the corresponding Bachelor and Diploma programs of FAU and TUM. Both, specialization  up to the front of current scientific research and an interdisciplinary broadening are intended. For this purpose the curricula are tailored for each student individually according to her/his particular abilities and interests by personal mentors. Furthermore, the program focuses also on personality development and acquisition of soft skills. All these objectives shall be achieved by means of new classical-style courses and especially by additional seminars and project work. Certain courses are conferred to well-known visiting scientists.
