Undergraduate program Electrical Engineering

[Translate to English:] Studiengang Elektrotechnik

The field of activity of electrical engineering is versatile. All areas of life are influenced by electrical engineering.

A topic of the electrical engineering is the "automation technology" especially in the industrial nations. Efficient working with process-automated systems ensures high productivity and high quality of goods in safe and clean workplaces.

The "electrical energy technology" with energy production and distribution up to the use in industry, traffic and the daily life is the basis of all electricity use. The goal is always the optimal production and use of electrical energy according to economic and ecological aspects.

The "telecommunications technology" with digitization is a key technology of our information society. It deals with the technical basics, the further development and use of modern computer and communication systems and media. Information of all kinds (language, text, graphics, pictures, multimedia content) can be generated, captured, transported via networks and prozessed in computers.

1st to 3rd semester
In the first three semesters, the "mathematical" and "electrical fundamentals" are laid out in three modules each. General knowledge in "physics" and "materials electrical engineering" as well as "components and basic circuits" are taught. Computer science skills are taught in the courses "Fundamentals of computer science", "High-level language programming" and "Introduction to operating systems". The "electrical measuring technology" and the "digital technology" round off the offer. A "non-technical elective module" offers events in the field of law, languages ​​or similar.

4th semester
The 4th semester consists of four compulsory modules and modules from the specialization area. These include "Introduction to Power Electronics", "Control Technology1", Signals and Systems "and" Sensor Technology and Measurement Electronics "

From the 4th semester, the student must choose two modules each in a specialization area:

The following specialization areas are offered:

  • automation technology

    • Electromagnetic compatibility
    • Electronic circuits
    • Basics of electrical machines
    • microprocessor technology
    • Process control 1
    • Control technology 2

  •  Electrical Power Engineering

    • Electromagnetic compatibility
    • Electrical energy systems 1
    • Basics of electrical machines
    • High voltage technology
    • Microprocessor technology
    • Control technology 2

  • Telecommunications

    • Data communication and computer networks
    • Electromagnetic compatibility
    • Electronic circuits
    • High Frequency and Microwave Technology 1
    • Microprocessor technology
    • Transmission technology

For a successful complete of the degree program, all modules from one specialization area must be taken!

5th semester - practical semester
In the 5th semester, the practical semester takes place. The internship semester serves to gain practical experience in a company in an engineering-related activity. The practice office assists in the search for a suitable company, but own initiative is expressly desired in the search. The practical semester includes a preparatory event in the 4th semester and a follow-up event in the 6th semester. In the 4th semester, the students listen to the lectures of students from the 6th semester, who have completed the internship semester.

6th semester
In the 6th semester you take two more modules from the specialization area. In addition, a key qualification module such as "project management" or "quality management" or "logistics planning" etc. is added.
In the 6th and 7th semester, the student has the option to choose compulsory elective modules totaling 30 ECTS.
There is an extensive list of approved elective modules from which the student can choose. As a decision-making tool, the department provides recommendation lists that recommend modules from the list for a specific qualification profile. In addition each compulsory module from another degree program of the Department of Engineering minimum from the 4th semester can also be a compulsory elective module in your own degree program. The elective modules are planned in an extra semester plan at the event plans.
In the 6th semester, the student additionally chooses at least three compulsory elective modules amounting to 15 ECTS.

7th semester
In the 7th semester, the student chooses two further modules from the chosen specialization area as well as three additional elective modules and a further key qualification.

8th semester
In the 8th and final semester, a practical phase and the bachelor thesis take place. Both are typically completed by students in the industry. During the practical phase, the student gets to know the respective company and its working environment and they make their do preliminary work for the bachelor thesis. Finally the bachelor thesis, a self-contained, independent scientific treatment of a topic with corresponding documentation starts. An associated colloquium at the end then completes the study.

Qualification aims

The degree and qualification goal of the degree program is the Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.)
