Information about the study programme
The study of Electrical Engineering provides all the basics and opportunities for specialisation to gain a foothold in this field later on - from "smart" things like the smartphone or the smart factory to other aspects of modern technology such as hardware and software.
As an industrial engineer, you not only consider the development aspect, but also the economic aspects: Which hardware enables a cost-efficient solution to the given problem? How do I sell a product I am convinced of to a customer? How do I even find customers for my product?
Our bachelor's programme is structured according to the modular principle: Different modules give you freedom in planning your academic career. In terms of content, the course combines two lines of study. The economic modules are provided by the Institute of Business Administration and Engineering (ITB), the engineering modules are the responsibility of our department. Both lines are closely interlinked from the very beginning.
In the first semesters, you will deal with basic engineering subjects such as Mathematics and Physics as well as Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Electronics. You will also acquire basic knowledge in the areas of Business Administration and Controlling. In the third semester, two modules specially designed for industrial engineers are added. In the Quality Management module you will learn how to test and guarantee the quality of a product. The Technical Writing module provides skills that enable you to create technical documentation, manuals and applications for economic support.
In the fourth and fifth semesters, the proportion of economics modules increases. Through technical and non-technical electives you can sharpen your professional profile individually. You will learn how to apply your knowledge in business games, communication training and project management exercises. In this way, you will develop important skills for your later professional life already during your studies.
