Following three semesters of scientific and electronic basic principles, the Electrical Engineering and Information Engineering (ELI) Bachelor's degree programprovides students with the opportunity to decide between the four majors automation technologies and robotics, electronics and embedded systems, information and communications technology or electrical engineering for renewable energy systems (as of WS2021/22).
Since 2017, we offer an alternative study program entitled "GettING Started" available to students of the ELI Bachelor's degree program.

The Electrical Engineering for Renewable Energy Systems (ERE) Bachelor's degree program prepares students for the challenges of the energy transition. Following three semesters of scientific and electronic basic principles, students can decide between the two majors "Electronic grids" (including control, management and safety mechanisms) or "Components for Smart Grids".
Attention: The study program in its current form will be closed for new students from the winter semester 2021/22. It is planned that "Electrical Engineering for Renewable Energy Systems" will be integrated into the Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (ELI) Bachelor's degree program as a major starting in the coming winter semester.

The high-technology sector of space travel with its extreme demands on materials and techniques requires an interdisciplinary approach involving mathematics, informatics, natural sciences and engineering in order to achieve the highest goals, such as a manned mission to Mars or the further development of the commercially used satellite network. Training specialists in space travel applications with a broad knowledge of the fundamental sciences is the goal of the Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) degree course “Physics and Technology of Space Travel Applications”. Courses are situated between physics and electrical engineering and are taught in conjunction with the Justus-Liebig-Universität Giessen.

In addition, the department has been part of a collaborative teacher training degree program with Justus Liebig University in Gießen since 2008. Those interested can enroll in the Vocational Education and Training with the Specialization of Electrical Engineering (B.Ed.) program and graduate with a "(BBB) Bachelor of Education".
