Programme contents

When you think of electrical engineering and information technology, you may first think of power plants, electricity grids and household appliances - but it has to do with highly topical issues: The 6th generation mobile internet, photonics, microsystems technology, nanoelectronics, traffic telematics and distributed intelligence are all part of this. We are constantly using electronic devices ourselves - mobile phones, computers, consumer electronics. In industry, automation systems control complicated production processes, information processing takes place at all levels. The Bachelor's Programme in Electrical Engineering and the Master's Programmes based on it open up a fascinating world to you. An academic education in the field of electrical engineering is future-proof: our graduate engineers have a very good international reputation and are in demand on the job market! The degree Programme offers numerous opportunities for a well-paid job and allows many further development possibilities in your career.


The Programme-PRe-Phase serves to discuss the choice of Bachelor's Programme and it is not a selection method. It is divided into two parts, which must be completed online before the admission:

  • Online survey on the choice of Programme: It serves the purpose of self-assessment, reflection on the choice of Bachelor's Programme as well as for deepening the requirements and general conditions of the Programme.
  • Feedback on the level of knowledge: This is intended to test the necessary basic mathematical knowledge. It serves to determine the current level of knowledge.

Further information about the programme

We are happy to receive many different open-minded school graduates from all types of school. It is absolutely not necessary to have attended a relevant higher technical education institute. Anyone with an interest in science or technology and a reasonable grasp of mathematics can study electrical engineering and information technology.

The equipment available is state of the art, the available space is sufficient in terms of quality and quantity. Neither the bachelor’s programme nor the follow-on master’s courses are oversubscribed. There are plenty of free spaces and sufficient mentoring staff in all courses.

You can obtain the brochure "Flight 235" containing all the information you might need at the start of your studies, from the Studies Department. The foundations of the course start with Mathematics, Physics, Electrical Engineering, Programming, Data Communications and Digital Systems. The second and third years of the bachelor's programme offer broad, methodical scientific training in all areas of electrical engineering and information technology. In addition, business administration, project management and soft skills are taught. With technology lifelong learning is essential: particular attention is devoted in this university course to developing the ability to absorb knowledge independently, to solve new problems and to classify and analyse new developments correctly.

The bachelor's programme nominally lasts 6 semesters, and the master's courses based on it generally take place over 4 semesters. A small number of students complete it in less time; many require significantly longer, not least because they undertake paid employment alongside their studies. Anyone studying full-time should be able to complete the bachelor's plus master's progammes within 12 semesters.
