Welcome to the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology

Smartphones, internet, or energy – life is literally impossible without electrical engineering and information technology – while their development is advancing rapidly and steadily allows for new technologies.

Further research and ongoing development of these areas is the primary goal of our faculty, which is enabled by manyfold research projects as well as teaching all necessary basics in several study courses.

Our lecturers are not only teachers, but also partners of our students, allowing dense collaboration of students and lecturers. Among other factors, this is the main reason why students experience excellent study conditions at our faculty.

Preparatory course

Our faculty offers a two-week preparatory course for bachelor programme beginners (Biomedizinische Technik, Elektromobilität, Elektrotechnik und Informationstechnik, Regenerative Energietechnik) in September each year.

The preparatory course gives an overview over the study courses and career chances. Expected basic knowledge will be refreshed, e.g. basics in mathematics, electrical engineering, computer science and physics, allowing for a good course start. In the afternoons, the different fields of electrical engineering, information technology and biomedical engineering are explored.
