The electrical engineering degree with its five specializations - automation technology, electrical power engineering, vehicle electronics, embedded systems, information technology - combines the classic contents of electrical engineering with modern information processing. On the one hand, it looks at how electricity is generated, transmitted, used and distributed, and on the other, how information is recorded, transmitted and disseminated and the systems required for this.As a graduate of the electrical engineering degree, you have a variety of fields of application with excellent career prospects. These range from development and planning to operation, maintenance and marketing of modern electrical systems and mobile and stationary electronic devices and systems.Type of study: Full time Duration of study: 7 semesters Lecture language: German Graduation: Bachelor of Science ECTS: 210 next start of studies: for the winter semester Application deadline: 07/15/2021Degree in electrical engineeringIn the major in "Automation Technology" you will learn to understand technical processes and to automate them with the help of modern information technology. Among other things, well-founded knowledge in the areas of power electronics, regulation and control technology as well as sensor technology and electrical drive technology is imparted. The contents of the electrical engineering degree also include modern operating systems and programming languages. You will find a wide range of application examples for automation technology in industry, in buildings and in modern products.
The modules of the specialization "Embedded Systems" convey the technical engineering knowledge that is necessary for the development, production and control of technical (computer) systems that work remotely in a technical system without being visible to the user. Areas of application for embedded systems can be found, for example, in vehicle technology (e.g. ABS, ESP, motor controls) or in communication technology (e.g. mobile phone, WLAN).
The major in "Electrical Energy Technology" in the electrical engineering course deals with the development and production as well as the use of components and systems for energy generation, distribution and use. The technical elective modules can be used to specialize in the field of renewable energies. Electrical energy technology is used, for example, by manufacturers of switchgear, electrical machines, thermal power systems or wind and solar systems, as well as by network operators and in larger industrial companies.
The major in “Vehicle Electronics” deals with the electronic components of modern cars. In addition to classic applications such as ABS or engine control, this also includes new development directions such as hybrid technology, modern assistance systems, X-by-wire or car-to-X communication. Knowledge from the areas of signals and systems, sensor technology, microelectronics and drive technology is imparted.
The modules of the "Information Technology" major in the electrical engineering course impart specialist knowledge for engineering activities in the field of complex systems of electrical engineering and information technology as well as the communication structures required for this. In-depth and practical knowledge of all aspects of the transmission, switching and processing of analog and digital messages is imparted. You will acquire specific knowledge of communications technology through subjects such as radio frequency technology, digital communication technology, mobile radio systems or optical communications.admission requirementsIn order to be admitted to the electrical engineering degree, a general higher education entrance qualification, technical college entrance qualification, subject-related university entrance qualification, successfully passed master's examination or a successfully completed course to become a state-certified technician or business economist is required. If you do not have a university entrance qualification, but can provide evidence of completed vocational training and at least 3 years of full-time employment, you can be admitted to studying electrical engineering by successfully passing an entrance examination.
