Study Content

The first three semesters serve as a subject-specific orientation and introduction to academic studies. Students gain the fundamental knowledge required later during their studies, as well as an overview of the different specializations within the broad field of electrical engineering and information technology.

In the fourth semester, students choose two out of five possible specializations for further advancing their knowledge and skills:

Automation Engineering

The specialization Automation Engineering deals with the automatization of industrial processes, plants or robots. Students learn about the control and drive technologies required for automation, as well as the project planning of such systems.

Communication Systems Engineering

The specialization Communication Systems Engineering deals with information transmission and data communication – key elements in intelligent systems such as car-to-car communication, the Internet, or wireless sensor networks in industry. Students learn, for example, how data is processed and transmitted in such systems.



The specialization Electromobility is concerned, for example, with innovative electric drives, autonomous driving and storage technologies that are not only used in cars and bicycles, but also in robots and railroad technology.


Embedded Systems

In the Embedded Systems specialization, students acquire the skills to design, build and program embedded systems, sensors and actuators, which are the basis of all technical systems – from smartwatches to autonomous vehicles.


Energy Engineering

In the specialization Energy Engineering, students learn about the design and construction of safe, reliable and environmentally friendly energy supplies. Intelligent power grids, renewable energies and the integration into electrical networks are just some of the topics covered.


This allows students to remain flexible and explore their personal interests before settling on specializations.

For the same reason, i. e. to afford students a high degree of flexibility, there are no separations into different degree courses (such as electromobility, energy technology, etc.).

In addition, the Electrical Engineering and Information Technology program provides for intensive laboratory phases, a practical semester, and the opportunity to be involved in ongoing research projects at the University; study and research are closely connected in the degree course. Non-subject-specific courses are also integrated, in order to prepare students for the broad variety of future professional activities.
