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.

Career prospects

Just as varied as the different areas of electrical engineering are the career prospects after an electrical engineering degree. As an electrical engineer, you can work in the following areas, among others:

  • Research and development
  • Automotive industry
  • Plant project planning
  • Energy supply
  • Telecommunications
  • Operation and maintenance
  • Manufacturing and production
  • Distribution
  • Monitoring and inspection
  • Consulting and teaching

Regardless of the specialty chosen, electrical engineers are always in demand. Thus, it is actually possible to choose among several offers depending on the preferred specialization and on the preferred location. The starting salaries achieved by young electrical engineers (on average €3,600 gross per month) are also impressive and well above the average for other fields of study. Such excellent opportunities for electrical engineers are not only available in Germany, but worldwide. Not many other fields can offer such career prospects.
