Electrical engineering and information technology are driving forces of innovation in the modern world. Our department covers a wide range of engineering disciplines within these fields.

Our study programs offer a broad and solid foundation education including hands-on training. Moreover, it offers a number of options where students can choose a specialization in either information technology, automotive IT, communication, automation, energy systems, energy management, or technical supply chain management.

Our research focusses on autonomous systems, sustainability & e-mobility, industry 4.0, and systemic perspectives.

The HTWG Konstanz – University of Applied Sciences campus is located on the banks of the River Rhine that flows into the Lake of Constance, a truly inspiring atmosphere. Our teaching concept emphasizes the practical application of technical and theoretical knowledge. Our perspective is interdisciplinary and international. We provide a personal learning atmosphere with an emphasis on small-group work.

The department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology is the perfect place to lay the foundation for your career.

Bachelor’s Programs

Our bachelor’s programs are application-oriented. The first part of the studies provide you with a solid foundation in the basics of electrical engineering. The second part of the program gives you the opportunity to specialize in a specific area.

Each of our bachelor’s programs include six semesters at the HTWG Konstanz and one integrated internship semester done in a company. The 7-semester program is typically completed in 3½ years. Most of the classes are taught in German, but there are courses in English as well (which can be taken without German language skills). Graduates receive the degree “Bachelor of Engineering”.

Automotive Information Technology (AIT)

Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (EIB)

Electrical Engineering and Management (EIW)

Graduated / Master's Programs

Our master’s programs allow you to broaden and expand your scientific and research skills.

All of our master’s programs last 3 semesters. The first two semesters consist of classes and small research projects at the HTWG-Konstanz. The master’s thesis is written in the final semester. (1½  years in total). About a third of the classes are taught in English; the remainder in German. Graduates receive the degree “Master of Engineering”.
