Electrical Engineering and Information Technology

Bachelor of Engineering (B. Eng.)

You want to discover the secrets of electronic systems and innovate professionally using microelectronics, software and embedded computer technology?Then the degree program Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (ET) is the right one for you!From the generation and distribution of electrical energy, comprehensive technical support in medicine, in the home and in administration, right through to constantly-available global communication links: as an Electrical Engineering and Information Technology specialist, you will develop the systems and components needed for society’s technical infrastructure.

The seven semester degree program ET offers you seven specialization topics, two of which you can choose for your personal course direction.The previous “stand-alone” electrical engineering degree programs are integrated into the new course structure with the selection of these specializations.For example, by combining the specializations “Automotive Electronics” and “Energy and Power Electronics”, you will acquire the same qualification as in the former degree program, “Automotive Electronics”.

You can also take this degree program with the Ulm Model or with in-depth practical experience.
