Faculty of Electrical Engineering

Electrical engineering studies offer two major fields: electrical energy and environmental engineering and building automation systems, which lay the foundations for vocational activities such as development, project work, distribution and maintenance of electrical energy plants and equipment. Equipment used to generate and distribute electrical energy (e.g. power stations and transmission facilities) and to convert and transform electrical energy (e.g. machinery and drive equipment, power conversion equipment, lighting installations, and building facility and systems technology) is of primary importance. Studies also include alternative forms of energy production, such as solar or wind energy. The basic duration of studies is 6 semesters. An additional practical semester can be included. Part-time studies of 10 semesters are also offered.

Studies of information and communications technology comprise the fields information and media technology, communication technology and information electronics. Information and communications technology streams, state-of-the-art systems and components are used to acquire, process, transfer and present information in such fields as audio, video, the Internet or mobile radio communications. Mobile communication technology studies deal with the transfer of information which - as in the case of mobile phones - may include video content. High-frequency technology, structural design and the miniaturization of circuitry represent key elements of study. Information and media technology are employed to process data, with WAP cellular phones, digital TV sets or PCs serving as telescopes into the data universe. Key topics are data transmission, control system technology, high image quality and enhanced data throughput.

The department of information and electrical engineering also offers a dual-mode bachelor's course in industrial service management which combines vocational training and studies.

A master's degree in information and electrical engineering and in Embedded Systems for Mechatronics, taught in English, in cooperation with the Faculty of Information Engineering is offered.
