What's it all about?

This degree programme is unique, because ...

Electrical Engineering and Information Technology cannot only found in many areas of everyday life, but also makes a decisive contribution to solving current and future challenges. Sustainable energy generation, electromobility and autonomous driving, smart buildings and resource-efficient microchips are just a few of the (future) topics you will deal with during your studies.

It provides the opportunity to specialise in the following fields

which you can put together yourself during your studies. In the first semesters, you will learn the theoretical and practical basics that will allow you to focus on the topics that interest you most later on in your studies. We offer a wide range of specialisations:

  • Automation technology
  • Medical engineering
  • Microelectronics
  • Sustainable energy generation
  • Plasma technology
  • Sensor technology
  • and many more​

Who is suited?

Those who wish to enrol in this degree programme,

  • an open mindset and curiosity for exciting and future-oriented topics
  • good mathematical, scientific and technical understanding
  • interest in solving complex technical problems
  • school subjects such as mathematics, physics, technology and computer science
  • new technical challenges and questions
  • discovering and developing new topics and pushing innovation forward
  • logical thinking
struggle through:
  • the basic courses of the first semesters (it's worth it!)
Graduates from this degree programme frequently work

in research and (product) development, in technical sales and management or in their own start-up - for example focusing on the following challenges:
  • Secure, sustainable and reliable energy supply
  • Hardware and software development
  • Sensors, e.g. for the mobility of the future
  • Development of technical processes and systems, e.g. in medical technology
