Electronics and Information Technology (formerly Information Electronics) - Bachelor's Degree Program

Today's information electronic systems are generally based on closely integrating hardware and software. Engineers educated in electronics and information technology require a broad educational program in order to be able to fulfil various tasks such as development, application, combining current components, circuits, systems and software technology in new products and applications. Conventional subjects in engineering and natural sciences, such as electrical engineering/electronics, physics, mathematics, are a part of the Bachelor's degree program in Electronics and Information Technology, allowing students to acquire in-depth knowledge in the following subject areas:

  • Physical base-knowledge in electrical engineering, electronics, and semiconductor devices
  • Microelectronics
  • Analog and digital circuit design and signal processing
  • Sensors and measurement engineering
  • Automation technology
  • News and communication networks
  • Hardware programming and real-time systems
  • Software engineering
  • Simulation tools at different levels of abstraction, including
  • understanding applied simulation techniques

When designing electronic information systems, modeling and simulation are indispensable cross-curricular focuses. The academic degree program provides broad base-knowledge and the Bachelor's degree program's core objective in Electronics and Information Technology is to convey the necessary skills needed so that graduates are in a position to analyze, draft and specify electronic information systems. Students acquire a sustainable and solid base-knowledge education in preparation for prospective professional careers. Students wishing to pursue advanced studies will fulfill the requirements to begin the Master's degree program.

Graduates of the program have:

  • Base-knowledge and applicable skills in mathematical-natural sciences and specialized theoretical disciplines,
  • An understanding of base-knowledge scientific principles and methods in the field of Electronics and Information Technology and the ability to apply these principles and knowledge to real-world problems,
  • Methodological skills in engineering, including the ability to cooperate and interact in an interdisciplinary way and the ability to quickly master new fields,
  • Skills as an engineer to independently and responsibly solve scientific and technical tasks,
  • A strong social skill set, the ability to work successfully in a team environment, leadership skills, and a high degree of personal responsibility,
  • The ability to work actively and successfully within an international research and development team.

Career Prospects

Graduates can apply their skills and knowledge in the field of Electronics and Information Technology, include developing, producing and marketing components, systems and software in the field of Electronics and Information Technology. The program provides students with a sound educational foundation enabling graduates to apply analytical thinking and technological understanding for multidisciplinary use in all areas of business, administration, education and society.
