​​​​​​​​​​Profile ​

The Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (Practice-Integrated) bachelor’s programme offers you the opportunity to combine technical vocational training or employment with scientific studies. This system takes less time than the usual pattern of a separate vocational training followed by university studies. The partner enterprises and the relevant chambers of industry and commerce are in charge of and responsible for the vocational training or employment.

This bachelor’s programme qualifies you as an engineer in electrical engineering and information technology. The syllabus is divided into modules. The basic modules of the first five semesters teach you the fundamentals of natural sciences and mathematics as well as electrical engineering and information technology. From the sixth semester onwards, you can choose modules for advanced studies from your chosen area of specialisation.

You can choose one of the following areas of specialisation:
  • Automation Technology
  • Electrical Power Engineering
  • Information Technology
  • Mechatronics, Microelectronics
We react quickly and agilely to innovations and adapt module contents in all areas of specialisation accordingly. Every semester, we add new future-oriented subjects to our syllabus in the form of elective modules. In the modules Technical English and Fundamentals of Business Administration as well as in non-technical elective modules, we teach you relevant key qualifications in addition to the purely technical content.

Besides lectures and exercises, the syllabus includes extensive practical elements, such as practical trainings, that take place from the very first semester onward. In state-of-the-art laboratories, you learn to work in teams responsibly and to independently realise projects in small groups. On field trips and during the practical phase of several months, you get in touch with businesses in the region. At the end of the study programme, you write a scientific bachelor’s thesis. You can continue your studies at HSD with the four-semester postgraduate Electrical Engineering and Information Technology master’s programme.

Please note: Language of instruction is mainly German.
