This will definitely prepare you for the challenges of the future: with a specialisation in electromobility, energy technology and mobile robotics, you will be qualified for the entire range of engineering activities in industry and public institutions.

Your career prospects

Our innovative approach that pays off

Fit for progress: As an electrical engineer, you are an innovator in the modern information society. In all industries, electrical engineers are specifically sought and hired for innovative tasks.

As an electrical engineer, you will usually work on one large or several small sub-projects. You will often be involved in the entire process, from planning and development to the design and manufacture of new devices, equipment and systems in the field of electronics and electrical engineering.

Your possible areas of responsibility

  • Research and development 
  • Planning and project planning 
  • Testing and quality assurance (test centres, e.g. TÜV)
