Bachelor of Engineering
The bachelor course in Electrical Engineering takes 7 semesters to complete and is divided into two parts, a one semester foundation and orientation course and five semesters of in -depth studies , which includes an industrial placement lasting one semester.
The orientation phase is intended to teach you the basics of Electrical Engineering and Informatics. Mathematics and Physics lay the foundations for success.
The final in-depth phase begins in the third semester in which the content remains identical for all students, from the the fourth semester onwards you can choose from the following main focuses: Information and Communication Technology, as well as Automation and Energy Technology.
In the main focus, the knowledge of both electrical engineering and interdisciplinary skills are built upon. During the industrial placement you have the opportunity to use your knowledge to work on projects. You attend lectures at the university alongside partaking in independent engineering work in industry.
After successfully completing the course, many possibilities are open to you. One is the Master course in Mechatronic Systems which is run in collaboration with the University of Ulster(Northern Ireland). More details about this course can be found on pgs. 108/109.
You really do not need to study Electrical Engineering to use a mobile phone or browse in the Internet. However, you would miss the chance of getting to know more about technology, which is behind the devices and systems we use on an everyday basis. In the general sense of the word electrical engineering is an engineering discipline. It ranges from nanotechnology to microelectronics and machine technology to energy distribution or communication networks. This large spectrum is not just about electrical contacts but also about the contact between men and machines.
The course content is as varied as the job profile of the electrical engineer. It ranges from the development of electrical devices to the variety in systems projects, planning and fitting as well as the putting into operation and maintenance of electrical and electronic systems. Also project development, project management and the monitoring and the control of such systems as well as the hardware and software are part of his tasks. In short, as a prospective electrical engineer, you have got a broad field of work and excellent job prospects in diverse areas.
The 16 Electrical Engineering professors at the Augsburg University of Applied Sciences, as well as 13 employees and 20 temporary lecturers in the Faculty of Electrical Engineering see it as their task to guide you to success during your studies. Through personal advice and a modern training concept they aim to give you the highest possible qualifications giving you, as well -sought after individuals, excellent chances on the job market in the industry.
