Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (B.Sc.)
What degree programme is on offer?
Electrical Engineering and Information Technology is a scientific/engineering discipline which is concerned with research and applications in engineering science involving electricity and all concomitant physical phenomena. It investigates both the conversion of primary energy into electrical energy as well as its transmission and distribution. The conversion of electrical energy, particularly into mechanical and thermal energy, is just as much a part of this field of study as are the transmission, routing and processing of messages and information.
The degree programme in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at TU Darmstadt covers a broad spectrum of engineering education. The focus of the various degree programmes is as follows:
- Automation Systems
- Computer-Aided Electrodynamics
- Computer Engineering
- Electrical Power Engineering
- Communication and Sensor Networks
- Sensors, Actuators and Electronics (SAE)
In this context, recent developments such as nanotechnology and regenerative energies are addressed. The degree programme, which takes five years, is rooted in systematic, method-based education and flanked by a wealth of practical experience at the university and a work placement in industry.
etit engineers trained at TU Darmstadt have extremely good employment prospects. More than 98 per cent of graduates find a job in R&D, planning, marketing or continuing education immediately after completing their degree.
When you take a B.Sc. you acquire a first full degree. However, we recommend you to continue studying for an M.Sc. in order to complete the academic training required to become an engineer. Only an M.Sc. is equivalent to the former title of “Diplom-Ingenieur”.
Who can take the degree programme?
In order to be accepted for the degree programme you must have passed either Abitur, or Fachabitur, or hold an equivalent school leaving certificate issued abroad. If you are an international applicant you will also require a DSH-2 language certificate.
In addition, you should …
- have good technical and scientific/mathematical skills
- enjoy dealing with these kinds of issues
- be motivated and have staying power
You want to …
- know how the technology that surrounds you actually works
- be able to help solve the problems challenging society
- exploit your creative potential
- work in interdisciplinary teams
When does the degree programme begin?
The degree programme begins every winter semester. In Germany, the winter semester starts on 1 October of each year. Lectures usually begin two or three weeks later. Visit current semester dates for the exact lecture start date.
To help you master the first steps at university, the etit Department runs various events for freshers before and during the introductory phase of the course.
