Study program

Bachelor programs

Our bachelor programs are application-oriented. In the first part, they provide you with a solid groundwork of competencies necessary electrical engineering in general and let you specialize in a specific area in the second half.

All of our bachelor programs consist of 6 semesters at the university and one integrated internship semester in a company resulting in 7 semesters in total (3.5 years). Most of the classes are taught in German, but there are courses in English as well (which can be chosen without German knowledge)

The graduates are awarded with the degree “Bachelor of Engineering”.
