Technical Information Design and Technical Communication (ITR)

The focus of the degree course is on the information-technical, user-friendly and media-specific conception and design of technical content. These fields of information design play a central role in all subjects of the degree course. Students learn to communicate complex subject matter in a comprehensible and clear manner and acquire sound knowledge in the areas of technology, design and writing.

Technical editors create technical information products such as user manuals or video tutorials and thus form the interface between developers and users. If information needs to be conveyed in a comprehensible and correct manner, technical editors are in great demand and have promising career prospects. Those, who would like to start in the professional field immediately after completing their bachelor’s degree, can gain insights into opportunities for career entry and continuing education on the annual career information day, among other events. Students of the bachelor's course “Technical Information Design and Technical Communication” can then deepen their acquired knowledge in a master’s programme.
