Innovative electrical engineers are developing solutions for the challenges of tomorrow: emission-free electric cars, renewable energies, or modern communication tools are only a few areas we are working on. However, it is not sufficient for companies to only be concerned with the technical side of these promising fields. In order to be successful in the market, companies must consider problems also from an economic standpoint, while keeping the needs of the customers in mind. Here is where the degree course “Electrical Engineering, Business Administration and Economics” comes into play.
Approximately two thirds of the course material deal with the subjects of electrical engineering and information technology. The technical part of the studies has a focus on the basic principles as well as in depth lectures from the automation, energy and IT fields. A broad basis in business administration, such as cost accounting, Marketing, Controlling, Finances or business law, will be conveyed in the commercial part of the studies. The lectures from the commercial part of the studies are offered online, which grants the students more flexibility in their time as well as their physical location.
There are two variants for the dual degree program:
in the first variant (with integrated vocational training) students also complete a trade apprenticeship in an affiliate company and attain a vocational degree as well as a Bachelors of Engineering degree. The final exam for the apprenticeship is normally conducted by the chamber of commerce.
Students also complete in-depth internship phases with affiliate companies in the second variant (with integrated industrial internships). In this option, attendance at a vocational college is not required. A qualification as a skilled tradesman is not a part of this degree program. An internship semester can also be replaced by distributed internship phases for a total time of 18 weeks in an affiliate company.
