Bachelor degree course: Electrical Engineering

What is Electrical Engineering?

Electrical Engineering is a diverse engineering science, which focuses on research, development, but also production of electrical devices and equipment. From the smallest PC chip to the largest power station transformer – Electrical Engineering is the anchor that makes technical progress possible. Without Electrical Engineering there would not be electricity in households, neither would a mobile phone or a plane work. Especially in the innovative areas of Electrical Engineering, there will be future developments that cannot be imagined today. This is the reason studying Electrical Engineering is known as one of the most demanding studies in Germany. But it’s all worth it – as an electrical engineer you have career prospects in diverse fields with an above average salary.
