Study Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (B.Sc.)

Information for prospective students of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (B.Eng.)

The new degree course in the field of electrical engineering with additional possibility for in-depth studies

Electro technical solutions are entirely incorporated into our everyday life. Current topics such as 'Industry 4.0', 'renewable energies', 'Internet of things' or 'smart home' offer exciting tasks as for the engineer of the future.

In the bachelor's degree course Electrical Engineering and Information Technology you can choose one of the three major fields of study after the second semester:Automation technology, Energy technology and Information and Communication Technology.

The degree course qualifies its graduates for demanding tasks in the industry, in public institutions and in science.  Students are able to independently work in the areas of planning, implementation, operation, maintenance and development of electrical facilities within the automation technology of electrical engineering and communication technology with IT.

    Main focus and module overview

    Automation technology

    • Leading companies of automation technology in industrial automation, as well as in the building automation currently hire graduates of degree courses hoping for a respective in-depth knowledge in the field of automation technology (AT).

    Energy technology

    • The energy technology (ET) sector is seeking graduates for the development, application, project planning and sales in the areas of energy production (conventional and regenerative), power transmission and distribution, as well as usage of electrical energy in the private and industrial sector.

    Information and Communication Technology

    • There is a constant demand for graduates in the field of information and communication technology. The students are appropriately prepared for the current requirements due to the further development of the degree course in the field of Information and Communication Technology (ICT).


    Core electives

    You can find the compulsory elective modules for your degree program on our learning platform CampUAS. There you can find out about the modules and enrol directly in the relevant courses.

    Admission requirements

    Students with a German university entrance qualification:

    Students with an international university entrance qualification:

    • Application deadline for the winter semester: September 1
    • Application deadline for the summer semester: March 1
    • Application via the platform uni-assist

    The degree course is not admission restricted.


    Students graduating from the program will be able to analyze problems relating to systems architecture and network planning, as well as hardware and software development and develop scientifically grounded solutions in interdisciplinary teams. As practically oriented engineers, they will be able to responsibly fulfil roles and tasks in electrical engineering for industry, planning offices, public service institutions and research. Students graduating from the program receive a certification that carries the quality seal for Europe-wide accredited standards for engineering programs.

    According to the VDE there are annually approximately 10,000 positions not filled by university graduates in these three core areas of electrical engineering.
