Your course content

What you will learn

Electrical engineers play a key role in the current technological transformation of mobility and energy technology. After studying the Electrical Engineering Bachelor's degree at SRH University of Applied Sciences Heidelberg, you will have all the skills you need to successfully plan, develop and maintain complex systems. You will also have the opportunity to specialise in areas of high social relevance: electromobility, energy technology and mobile robotics.

In addition to the necessary specialised knowledge, we will prepare you for your career entry in a targeted manner right from the start: In many exercises and interdisciplinary projects, you will solve practical problems both on your own and as part of a team. 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)
  • Technical sales (sale of technical products)


In the coming years, electromobility will become another major field of activity in which you as an electrical engineer will be in demand for project planning, development and realisation. Because we always adapt the course content to current developments, studying with us will give you excellent opportunities in this future-oriented labour market.
