Electricity is the engine of progress in our modern society. Whether from the electric socket or in mobile phone accumulators - electricity accompanies us constantly. Electrical Engineering and Information Technology does not only deal with the generation, transmission and use of electricity. It is also concerned with the production of components, sensors and circuitry that serve among other things the acquisition, processing and transmission of information and thus are in the focus of information technology.

During the studies on the one hand, the generation of electrical energy in power plants, the transport of electric current in cables and overhead lines and the use of electrical power in electrical machines and facilities 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 covered that deal with the acquisition, depiction, transfer and processing of information - application fields are communication technology, measurement technology, multimedia technology and automation engineering. On the website of the program 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 program with a Diploma in Engineering. You can get more information here.

Further information regarding the specialisations

This specialisation deals with topics related to the collection, depiction, transfer and processing of information. In addition to communications technology and communications engineering, these topics also play a role in electronic measurement technology, microwave technology and multimedia technology and automation engineering.

Specialisations: information and communication technology, general and theoretical electrical engineering, circuit technology

The generation of electrical energy in power stations, the transport of electric current in cables and open wires and the utilization of electricity in electrical machines and installations are topics that students are concerned with in this specialisation. Another possibility is to delve deeper into the field of automation. This is mainly about circuits and sensors for controlling and monitoring energy systems.

Specialisation: energy technologies, automation engineering

Microelectronics and nanotechnology is the connection between the other two specialisations. It deals mainly with the production of components and their integration into complex systems. Material selection and material development play an important role thereby, so that subjects such as micro- and semiconductor technology or material design are also covered during the studies.

Practice during studies

The basic internship is an academic achievement with a duration of six weeks. It should be fulfilled preferably before the start of studies, but can also be completed before the end of the sixth semester. The professional internship during the seventh semester takes 16 weeks and can be completed in companies at home as well as abroad.
