  • System development (e.g. switchgear, circuit breakers, inverters, reactive power compensation systems)
  • Plant construction (e.g. cable and overhead line construction, switchgear construction)
  • Electrical installations and networks: operation and maintenance
  • Network control and protection technology
  • Planning and monitoring of photovoltaic and wind energy plants
  • Conception of Smart Grids
  • Electricity trading (balancing group and timetable management, portfolio management, electricity procurement)

This means that you can work, for example, as a development, project planning, commissioning, maintenance and repair engineer.

You can also follow a Master's Programme (e.g. EIM) to further qualify for a position as an engineer in research and development.
