Study Content

Renewable generation, distribution and use of electrical energy is one of the most important challenges of our time. The Electrical Power Engineering/ Physicsplus programme enables graduates to work on solutions for the energy supply of the future.

In addition to energy technology, the Electrical Power Engineering / Physicsplus programme contains a higher proportion of physics than the other programmes offered by the university.

The plus in the name means that about 15 % of the study contents are pedagogy and didactics, which are contributed by the Pädagogische Hochschule Freiburg. This gives graduates the choice of working as engineers with a bachelor's degree or becoming teachers at a vocational school, for example a technical high school. In order to facilitate this decision, two school internships take place during the studies.
