Quality and innovation by tradition

Erasmus Kittler
Erasmus Kittler

Our guiding principle, “quality and innovation by tradition”, was inspired by the founder of the department, Erasmus Kittler. In 1882, he established electrical engineering as an independent academic discipline – the first scientist to do so. But he also set new standards in his own research work, combining fundamental principles with practical applications.

Today, our Department covers all fields of modern electrical engineering and information technology. Thanks, not least, to its international appoach and interdisciplinary connections, we became one of the nation’s leading institutions in both teaching and research.
