The Bachelor Electrical Engineering/Elektrotechnik is an engineering course of study with a practical orientation. Due to a specially tailored core curriculum, it is suitable for students who lack the language requirements for a German-speaking course at the beginning of their studies.
The programme is mainly derived from the German-speaking Bachelor's programme in electrical engineering. However, the first semesters have been modified in the form of a "study adapter", in which the technical content of the first two semesters is stretched over four semesters. This reduces the workload and provides students with time for intense German language studies.
During the first two semesters, the courses are completely held in English. In third and fourth semesters, the language is partly shifted to German. Starting in the fifth semester (main course), the course language is almost completely in German.
During the course of study, the students gain knowledge of a broad field of disciplines required for electrical engineering, e.g., Electrical Engineering Fundamentals, Computer Science, Material Engineering, Mathematics, Technical Physics, Electronics, Electronics Design and Technology, System Theory/Control Theory, Measurement Engineering, Digital Systems, Industrial Control, Power Electronics, Computer Aided Design, Fundamentals of Microprocessors, Signals and Systems, Electrical Actuators, System Design with Programmable Circuits, Electric Power Supply, Electromagnetic Compatibility, Electronic Packaging, and Microsystems as well as Business Management/Engineering Law. Additionally, in the main course of study, several mandatory modules that consist of electives must be chosen from the different fields of specialisation in electrical engineering.
The modules are set up in a method-oriented way. In the modules, competencies are taught regarding the application of methods of analysis, design, dimensioning, calculation, measurement, and inspection. Numerous product-oriented modules aim to make the education both broad and applicable.
