Whether we’re calling someone, emailing or using a web application, communication networks are always used to invisibly transport the data you need around the world quickly, safely, and reliably. Information technology forms the basis for the design, implementation and operation of the global Internet.

The information technology consists of the subdisciplines digital signal processing, communication systems, integrated circuits as well as high frequency technology and deals with the planning, the design and the implementation of complex systems for information transmission over heterogeneous transmission media (cable, radio). An essential task of information technology here is the detection and processing of multimedia signals (voice, audio, video, sensor signals) and their transmission via mobile networks, satellite systems or computer networks, such as the global Internet.

Digital signal processing deals with methods for coding, estimating and classifying signals as well as system identification. Software engineering and the use of various programming tools form the foundation for the efficient realization of these methods in the form of software algorithms. The combination of digital signal processing and message theory is used to design and build digital communication systems.

That electronic devices – especially in the field of mobile communication – are becoming smaller and more powerful, is largely due to the stormy development in the field of integrated circuits. New technologies and manufacturing methods make it possible to integrate more and more components on one chip. Both analog and digital circuits are integrated into complex systems.

The high-frequency and microwave technology as classical areas of information technology are mainly concerned with the utilization of electromagnetic waves for the transmission of information. The recent development is characterized by the development of ever higher frequencies in the gigahertz range for wireless communication. As the basic technology for the global Internet, optical communications technology plays a decisive role. It allows distances over 30,000 km to be covered.



You will receive application documents from the career counseling office responsible for your place of residence. As a soldier or soldier you bear great responsibility. That is why there is a detailed consultation at the beginning of the application process. You can find contact details for career counselors on the Internet at Free telephone hotline: 0800 9800880.
