Detailed description of the degree programme
How are mobile phones produced? Can I operate a robot remotely via the internet? How does a wind turbine work, and what will tomorrow’s energy grids look like? In our Bachelor programme, your will learn the answers to these questions and many others concerning electrical engineering – in an active, practice-oriented manner.
As a sought-after expert, you will have the opportunity to actively and creatively shape technology of today and tomorrow, considering that electrical engineering is a key technology. Your fields of activity will range from development to quality management and production, to technical sales. If you would like to enhance your electrical engineering skills after completing the Bachelor programme, you can progress to our Master’s programme in Electrical Engineering, which we also offer as a part-time programme. Here, occupation and study – practice and further training are closely connected.
After completing your degree in Electrical Engineering, you will be qualified as an engineer to develop electrotechnical products and systems, and to plan and monitor their production or creation. You will be able to analyse technical issues and challenges using engineering methods on the basis of mathematical and scientific knowledge. You will also be able to find solutions, and to assess these solutions in terms of their feasibility, costs and impact for society and the environment. During your technical training, you will gain the expertise and methodological skills that will qualify you to become an engineer.
Content and course sequence
The Bachelor programme in Electrical Engineering is divided into two stages: at the start of the programme, you will first learn the fundamentals of engineering, such as electrical engineering, computer science, mathematics and physics. By then, you will have the basis required to pursue in-depth studies in one of our specialisations:
- Specialisation in Energy and Automation Technology
In this specialisation you will familiarise yourself with modern drives including power electronics, program our model factory, measure sensors and get to know modern power supply systems. Electives such as Photovoltaics, Wind Power Converters or Robotics offer the opportunity to form individual study foci.
- Specialisation in Information Technology
The specialisation Information Technology deals with all aspects of wireless and wireline communications. You analyse and modify signals, program microprocessors and develop electronic circuits. Through our elective courses, you can delve into topics such as Embedded Software, Communication Technology or Software Engineering.
In the final semester, your block of practice will enable you to gain insight into a company, where you will usually write your Bachelor thesis.
