Shape the future in the age of change by developing efficient new electrical and electronic technologies.

The Electrical Engineering and Information Technology program trains electrical engineers who can translate scientific knowledge and technical ideas directly into practical applications or marketable products.

 

Basic studies
In the first three semesters, students learn the technical and scientific basics. This part is mandatory for all students in the program. Typical lectures in this part include electrical and electronic engineering, digital circuits and computer engineering. In-depth training in various aspects of programming also takes place in this part of the program.

Main studies
In the main studies, starting in the fourth semester, students can specialize in one of the two fields of study:

Communications Engineering deals with the transmission, switching and processing of messages. The worldwide growth of telecommunications ensures that this branch will continue to play a leading role in the globalized economy and industry.

Automation technology has become a symbol of the modern manufacturing industry. Industrial societies of the 21st century are characterized by global competition and largely automated production.

 

Practical semester
The fifth semester is a practical semester, which students complete in an industrial company nearby or across Germany, working independently on a task in the field of electrical engineering.

Upon successful completion of the program, you will earn the internationally recognized Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) degree.
