Requirements and application

Admissions restrictions No local entrance restrictions
Pre-study placementBefore you can be admitted to this Bachelor programme, you must be able to demonstrate that you have completed at least 13 weeks of practical work. You may perform this work within a work placement, for example, or you may have a relevant apprenticeship accepted. During your practical work, you should have gained insight into typical working techniques and become acquainted with business organisation issues.

The pre-study placement must generally be completed before starting your degree programme, and must be demonstrated during enrolment. If you are unable to complete all 13 weeks before starting university, you must demonstrate completion of the remaining weeks by the start of the third semester at the latest.
ApplicationIt is not possible
to apply at present.

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.

Occupational fields

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.

Objectives

After completing your degree in Electrical Engineering, you will be qualified as an engineer to develop electrotechnical products, and to plan and monitor their production. 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, impact and costs. 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:

  • Automation Technology
  • Renewable Energies
  • Embedded Engineering
  • Information Technology/Communications 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.
