Electrical engineers contribute significantly to the generation of technical progress. Wind power stations, car engines and microchips – electrical engineering covers all electrical and electromagnetic fields. Depending on the area of expertise chosen, the professional life of an engineer is characterized by a large variety of tasks, for instance reducing energy consumption, developing software, improving the quality of mobile networks, developing circuit boards or commissioning industrial machinery.

All these activities are based on a positive attitude towards problem solving. The study of electrical engineering aims at enabling students to work independently on technical solutions to various problems. A successful study of electrical engineering is grounded in an enthusiasm for engineering and a marked interest in technical mathematical issues.

The Bachelor’s degree program Electrical Engineering is also offered as a dual study program.
