Electrical Engineering/Electronics in modern life, Digitalization, Robotics.
Modern life with robots, digitial assistents, IoT and even artificial intelligence is not possible without electrical and electronic technologies, and it is amidst this modern life that electrical engineers will find their place. Almost all aspects of life benefit from their expertise.

Electrical Engineering/Electronics in Information Technology.
Information and Communication technology is a central discipline in electrical engineering and electronics. New analog and digital fast and efficient transmission technologies are the key to communication technologies. Engineers of Electrical Engineering and Electronics work on furthering this development.

Electrical Engineering/Electronics in Automation.
Automation is one of the technologies in electrical engineering, within our industrial society, that has been expanding enormously. Engineers in automation deal with control systems as used in autopilots in aircrafts, car stability control and safety packages as well as in the automated production processes of industry.

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

»Electrical Engineering and Information Technology« trains electrical engineers who can translate scientific findings and technical ideas directly into practical applications or marketable products.

 

Basic Studies
In the first three semesters, students learn professional and natural science basics. This part is compulsory for all students of this program. Typical lectures in this part cover electrical engineering and electronics, digital circuits and computer technology. A sound training in different aspects of programming also takes place in this part of the study.

Main Studies
In the main study period from the fourth semester onwards, students can specialize in one of the two study directions:

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

Automation Engineering has become a symbol for the modern manufacturing industry. The industrial societies of the 21st century are determined 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 an assignment from the field of electrical engineering.

After successfully completing your studies, you will graduate with the internationally recognized Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) degree.

Why study Electrical Engineering & Information Technology at our RWU
Digitalization, Robots, Automation and Communication Technology? Elective modules, laboratories and practical work experience? 
  • Shape the future in the era of change by developing efficient new electrical and electronic technologies. Our B. Eng. in Electrical Engineering & Information Technology trains engineers who can translate scientific findings and technical ideas directly into practical applications or marketable products. With your B. Eng. you will deepen your knowledge in energy-efficiency, autonomous and control systems, contributing an essential part to companies’ success in new, faster and more efficient technologies.
  • Modern life is not possible without electrical and electronic technologies: digital assistants, robots, autopilots in airplanes or car stability control systems, faster and more efficient transmission technologies, etc. almost all aspects of life benefit from an engineer’s expertise. Our intensive supervision, numerous exercises in the laboratories, project work and case studies as well as the high focus on practical work, including a mandatory internship make our graduates a valuable asset for all national and international companies.
