Vocational Education in Electrical Engineering/ Information Technology (EI-plus)

Electrical and Information Engineering forms the basis for modern systems and applications such as smartphones, robots, wireless sensor networks, smart grids, electric vehicles, Industry 4.0, or Internet of Things (IoT). With Hochschule Offenburg’s degree program Electrical and Information Engineeringplus, students acquire the foundations, methods and specialist knowledge to understand such systems and developments, and to then be able to help shape the future as engineers themselves.

In addition to these engineering areas, the program in cooperation with Freiburg University of Education also provides pedagogical training, qualifying graduates for teaching positions at vocational schools.
