Career Perspectives

The professional perspectives for engineers in electrical engineering and information technology are many and varied, including:

  • Research and development of electrical and IT components and systems, particularly hardware and software development, but also development of new technologies
  • Conceptual design, implementation and monitoring of a wide variety of systems in process and factory automation, energy generation and automation-technology processes
  • Project management, managing working teams departments
  • Distribution of electrical and IT components and systems
  • Consulting and training

Graduates of the EI program can choose from a wide range of industries (e.g. automotive industry, mobile communications, medical technology, energy and environmental industry, aerospace, mechanical engineering, etc.), and from positions locally, nationwide and abroad.

The demand in industry for graduates in electrical engineering and information technology remains consistently strong, as documented by various current studies of the German Association of Electrical, Electronic and Information Technologies (VDE).

In addition to directly entering into an engineering career, there is also the possibility to continue at university and pursue a Master's degree:
