Program description

Bachelor Electrical Engineering and Information Technology

Purpose-made Electronic Intelligence

Electrical engineering and information technology have become an integral part of our digitalized world. Every “intelligent” device is built with the expertise of electrical engineers, who work with electrical and electronic systems ranging from minuscule semiconductor devices to enormous power plants. Mathematics, physics and computer science form the basis of the diverse toolbox used by electrical engineers to invent, develop and build the technology of the future.

The first two years of the degree program focus on building the theoretical foundations in the compulsory subjects. However, practical skills are also acquired from the very first semester through practical sessions and small group projects. In the third year of the program, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology students can specialize in a focus area and supplement this with electives. A Bachelor’s thesis completes the program.
