Detailed information for international applicants

What's it all about?

This degree programme is unique, because ...

it combines two disciplines that have long been inseparable in practice:
Electrical engineering expertise is necessary to understand, develop and produce materials, components, circuits, devices and systems.
Information technology uses these elements to create networks in the modern information society and to apply the accumulated information in a variety of ways.

It provides the opportunity to specialise in the following fields
  • energy technology
  • Industry 4.0
  • communication technology
  • medical technology
  • plasma technology
  • sensor technology
  • and many more

Who is suited?

Those who wish to enrol in this degree programme,


  • a sound understanding of mathematics, science and technology
  • an interest in systematically solving complex technical problems
  • an outgoing nature, inquisitiveness and an open mind


  • tackling new technical challenges and issues
  • technical innovations
  • discovering and designing new things and driving innovation forward
  • logical thinking

struggles through

  • challenging courses that focus on independent learning and teamwork
Graduates from this degree programme frequently work

in a highly dynamic, multifaceted and innovative field. Anything is possible, from careers in research and development, to sales, management consulting, working for public authorities or starting your own business. The sectors in which our graduates work are diverse, e.g.:

  • In the field of efficient, environmentally friendly generation, transmission and conversion of electrical energy
  • In the field of electronic components and integrated circuits for the efficient and innovative processing of information
  • In the field of fibre optics-based, mobile or satellite-supported communications
  • In the field of automation of industrial production processes, e.g. through the use of robots.
