Description

Electricity is the engine of progress in our modern society. Whether from the power socket or in mobile phone batteries - electricity accompanies us constantly. Electrical engineering and information technology is not only concerned with the generation, transmission and use of electricity. It is also about the production of components, sensors and circuits, which are used, among other things, for the acquisition, processing and transmission of information and are therefore at the centre of information technology.

In the course of studies, on the one hand, the generation of electrical energy in power plants, the transport of electricity in cables and overhead lines and the use of electrical current in electrical machines and systems are considered, and on the other hand, the realization of components and sensors and the design of electronic circuits are learned. In the field of information technology, techniques are dealt with which deal with the acquisition, representation, transmission and processing of information - fields of application are communication technology, measurement technology, multimedia technology and automation technology. On the website of the course you will find more information about current projects.

Starting in the winter semester 2017/18, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology will also be offered as a ten-semester course of study leading to the degree of Diplom-Ingenieur. Here you can find more information about this.

Specialisations

           

I study electrical engineering and information technology because the energy supply of the future still needs innovative and creative developers.

Due to the good reputation of the university and the short distance to my home town, the TU Ilmenau was the perfect choice for me.

Practice during studies

The basic internship is a course of study with a total duration of six weeks. It should preferably be completed before the course of study, but can be completed by the end of the 6th semester.

The specialist internship in the 7th semester lasts 16 weeks and can be completed in companies in Germany and abroad.
