Electrical and Communication Engineering
Electrical engineers are some of today's most sought-after experts. The interlinking of information and communication technology, micro-electronics and electrical power engineering energy has shaped the modern image of electrical engineers. They rarely specialist in just one area. More often than not they combine expertise in several areas. Their professional careers are very individual and versatile. The study programme includes electronics, micro-electronics, computer engineering, signal processing, ICT, alternative energies and automation, among other subjects. Great importance is attached to computer engineering. Students also gain sound mathematical and scientific knowledge and selectively enhance their linguistic, economic and social skills.
During the final third of the study programme, the basics that have been learned are applied and used within a specialisation subject chosen by the student or in a personal specialisation profile. There is a broad spectrum of specialisation modules available. By working in the lab, the student puts his theoretical knowledge into practice. Specific projects are processed on behalf of our research institutes or in cooperation with industry and economic partners for project work and the Bachelor thesis.

The work of today’s electrical engineers is determined by the linked-up nature of information and communication technology, microelectronics and electrical energy technology. They rarely work in just one area of specialisation but rather in several connected fields. Careers are thus particularly individual and many-sided. Electrical engineers are some of the most sought-after professionals in today’s economy.
