Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (Bachelor's degree)

Semester 7 Semester
Winter semester/summer semester
Without admission restriction.


How can television, Internet and telephone be combined in one device? How is photovoltaic electricity optimally fed into the public grid? Why does an industrial robot always grip the right part? Questions like these are the focus of students in the Bachelor's degree program in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology. In the first three semesters, basic knowledge in mathematics and physics is acquired, as well as the basics of electrical engineering and information technology. Afterwards, students can choose between four specializations:

  • Energy, electronics and environment
  • Automation and information technology
  • Communication Technology
  • General electrical engineering

More detailed information on the study programme can be found on the webpage of the department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology.


Electrical engineers work in the following areas

  •  Research and development,
  •  Design and manufacturing,
  •  Product marketing and sales as well as project management in the construction of complex plants.

in Sectors (selection): Electrical industry (electrical appliances, power supply), automotive and vehicle construction, IT industry, medical technology, chemical industry, mobile communications, railway systems, renewable energies.

Based on the Bachelor's degree, the following Master's programmes are possible:
Electrical Engineering - Master of Science
Industrial Engineering - Master of Science


The know-how necessary for the practice is conveyed through lectures, laboratory activities, exercises and project work. Team competencies as well as language and presentation skills
equip the future engineers for international projects. You can find a detailed presentation of the course contents in the module manual (German). The Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) degree is a professional qualification, but also allows the transition to Master's degree courses (see diagram). The Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (B.Eng.) degree programme can also be studied in a dual system within the framework of the KoSE model.


The degree programme Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (B.Eng.) is not admission restricted (no NC). By the end of the third semester, proof of eight weeks of practical training must be provided. Among other things, these school-leaving certificates are considered admission requirements:

  • General matriculation standard (allgemeine Hochschulreife)
  • Subject-related entrance qualification (fachgebundene Hochschulreife)
  • Advanced entrance qualification for universities of applied sciences (Fachhochschulreife)

A detailed description of the admission requirements can be found in the Special Provisions of the Examination Regulations (German).
