We welcome you at the Faculty of Electrical Engineerung at Ostfalia University in Wolfenbüttel!
If you need information about us, we will be pleased if you look up our corporate brochure or our German website and get in contact with us.
Electrical Engineering - of course!
Did you ever ask yourself how a cell phone works? Or a wind turbine? Today we are surrounded by technology - you find it in cars, laptops, TV sets and in the photovoltaic cells on your neighbor’s roof. All these things are so natural to us that we do not even perceive them anymore.
What is Electrical Engineering?
Electrical Engineering is a broad field: it is comprised from all areas of industrial technology, transport, administration and strategy. Electrical Engineering uniquely combines mathematics, physics, technology and computer science into a harmonious whole. Those of you who already liked mathematics in high school or enjoy tinkering around with their computers at home are in the right place here.
What can I expect of my studies?
Electrical Engineering is definitely one of the most interesting and versatile majors. Though, you should be interested in natural sciences because these provide the basis for all kinds of engineering. Here you will learn how to define, model and analyze dynamic systems. By the time you graduate you will be able implement complex systems made of basic modules. On top of that, you will have improved your communication, cooperation and presentation skills.
What majors do we offer?
Electrical Engineering focuses on the research, development and production of electrical and electronic devices, systems and facilities. In these areas we offer different programs:
- Automation and Energy Technology (Automatisierung und Energiesysteme), also with the specialization in electric mobility.
- Information Technology and Communication Systems (Informationstechnik und Kommunikationssysteme)
- Electrical Engineering - Dual Study Program with Integrated Vocational Training (Elektrotechnik im Praxisverbund)
What are my perspectives after graduating?
As an engineer you develop state-of-the-art systems for the automotive sector, aerospace, consumer electronics, traffic control as well as for energy production and supply. Especially the current topics of renewable energies, energy transport and storage provide bright job prospects. Of course, this also applies to communication technology since virtual communication increasingly influences our daily lifes.
Studying Electrical Engineering does not automatically mean that one becomes a designing engineer. The field of work is fairly widespread. There is a variety of job profiles in research, development, sales and marketing. It is up to you.
