More information about the Study Program

For whom is the program suitable?

The Electrical Engineering and Information Technology program is primarily aimed at students from all over the world who want to study engineering in Germany but do not feel confident enough in the German language. On the other hand, the program is also attractive to native speakers who want to complete their studies in English.

Study contents and course organization

The Electrical Engineering and Information Technology program combines a sound theoretical education with a high level of practical relevance in cooperation with leading industrial companies as partners. In order to further strengthen the practical relevance, THU offers a scholarship program in cooperation with a number of renowned partner companies, in the context of which students are financially supported by the companies on the one hand, and on the other hand gain continuous practical experience by working in the company in parallel to their studies.

In addition, mastery of the German language is one of the fundamental goals of this degree program, which is why German language modules are included in almost all semesters.

Reasons for the Study Program

  • Sound theoretical education with a high level of practical relevance
  • Excellent study conditions
  • Small project groups
  • Compulsory practical phase (internship) in industry
  • Possibility to enter a scholarship program in cooperation with a number of renowned partner companies
  • Leading industrial companies as partners (e.g. Robert Bosch GmbH, BMW AG, Continental AG, Mercedes Benz AG, Nokia Corporation) with important sites nearby the campus

Career Prospects

  • Excellent career opportunities nationally and internationally in small, medium and large companies
  • Developing, manufacturing, distributing, installing, commissioning and maintaining electrical and automation equipment and systems
  • Working in planning offices, in sales companies, in consulting firms, in teaching and further education, in research and product development

From the generation and distribution of electrical energy, to comprehensive technical support in medicine, households and administration, to always-available, global communication links – as an electrical engineering and information technology engineer, you will develop the necessary systems and components for the technical infrastructure of modern society and thus make a significant contribution to shaping the digital transformation and the energy transition.

The engineering profession offers you a diverse career field in a future-proof job market. The high career aptitude of graduates is confirmed by top scores in various studies. This is the result of a survey by the VDE (Association for Electrical, Electronic & Information Technologies, Germany), for example, according to which four out of five graduates need fewer than ten letters of application to start their careers and more than half of the graduates already have commitments from other companies when they sign their contracts. Ulm and the surrounding area in particular offer an economic environment with highly attractive employers ranging from innovative start-ups to medium-sized companies and large-scale industry.

Personal Prerequisites

Course schedule

This 7 semester program consists of 2 semesters of basic studies (basics in mathematics, natural sciences and electrical engineering), four semesters with compulsory modules and selectable specialization modules and a practical semester in industry. Practice-oriented labs with state-of-the-art measurement and lab equipment are integral parts of all study phases.

Basic studies, compulsory modules and a fixed canon of specialization modules from the field of automotive engineering are supplemented by German as a compulsory language in order to facilitate integration, e.g. in the practical semester in a German company.

Practical orientation is a key element in all of our study programs. We believe that practice-oriented teaching with a strong laboratory component can offer foreign students a high level of added value. From the first semester on, they will be taught with the latest measurement and device technology.

After successful completion of this degree program you will be awarded the academic degree title "Bachelor of Engineering".
