Bachelor Programme "Electrical Engineering and Information Technology"

Key Data:

  • Final degree: Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) in “Electrical Engineering and Information Technology”
  • Language of instruction: German, partially in English
  • Duration: six semesters
  • Beginning of the programme: October each year
  • Admission: no restrictions, valid university entrance qualification necessary

Brief Description:

The programme is research orientated. At the same time, a lot of laboratory work is integrated into the programme to provide hands-on experience with modern technologies. Emphasis is laid on fundamentals and methodical knowledge especially in basic courses. The programme is divided into three parts:
  • The first three semesters comprise of fundamental lectures on topics such as mathematics, physics, informatics and basics of electrical engineering.
  • The second part of the programme (semesters 4 and 5) focuses on the professional education in electrical engineering and information technology, with different elective courses and modules for the three possible major fields of study.
  • The last semester comprises an internship, multidisciplinary courses (called “Studium Fundamentale”) and the Bachelor thesis. The intention is to prepare students for their professional careers in their selected specialisation. The “Studium Fundamentale” offers interdisciplinary lecture series and short courses on topics such as business administration, patent law, etc. Bachelor theses are often integrated into research projects or offered in cooperation with industry partners.

The participants of the programme have to select one of three specialisations. Each specialisation requires different elective courses and modules. The possible specialisations are

  • Electrical energy engineering,
  • Information and communication technology, and
  • Microsystems and microtronics

Career Opportunities and Occupational Area:

For a long time, there has been an increasing demand for electrical engineers that cannot be satisfied, even with rising student numbers. At present, a lack of engineers is registered and is still prognosticated for the future in Germany. Good prospects for first-year university students result also from the fact that scientists in electrical engineering at Technische Universität Dortmund are involved in national and international research projects. And many international contacts to universities, institutes and companies world-wide, so that students get in touch with future technologies and applications from the front line of research. In the context of the European SOKRATES/ERASMUS Exchange Programme, there exists the possibility of completing an approved academic year at partner universities in France, Great Britain, Italy or Spain and serveral Asian countries.

Application and Contact:

Application (also electronically) is possible for German students via the Center for Study Matters of  Technische Universität Dortmund. As a rule, foreign students apply at International Office; TU Dortmund. At the beginning of the study, foreign students will get specific assistance to reduce typical initial difficulties. Tutors from upper semesters will assist first-year students. Please obtain further information from our web offer or directly from respective contact persons.
