Electrical Engineering, Information Technology and Computer Engineering - Bachelor
The Bachelor's degree program "Electrical Engineering, Information Technology and Computer Engineering" provides students with the necessary knowledge of mathematics, electrical engineering, information technology and physics to successfully perform their tasks as electrical engineers in their future workplace.
With the Bachelor's degree it is definitely possible to enter professional life, however, the engineering education is rounded off only by the corresponding four-semester Master’s degree program.
The Bachelor's degree program is modular. The modules of the first semesters provide mathematical-scientific and methodical principles with their corresponding (software) laboratories necessary for further studies.
With the beginning of the fourth semester, students can choose one of the following fields of specialization:
Information Booklet (in German)
- Energy engineering,
- Micro- and nanoelectronics
- Information and communications technology
- Computer engineering
- New: Biomedical Engineering (starting in the winter semester 2018/19)
A good prerequisite is having fun with mathematic and scientific problems. Good grades in math and physics are a sign of particular aptitude for this program. In order to successfully complete the program, students should bring curiosity, creativity, communication and teamwork skills, as well as the ability to think independently. Moreover, students should bring the willingness to deliver maximum performance and stamina. If you feel involved, it is unimportant whether you are male or female. The degree program is equally suitable for both sexes.
RWTH Aachen University offers an Online-Selfassessment to help prospective students to choose the right program. The service is free of charge and anonymous. You will receive a written evaluation of your results after you have finished the test. In your application for the Bachelor degree program you have to provide proof that you have participated in the Self Assessment. The results of the Online-Selfassessment have no impact on the admission procedure.
Owing to the fact that the language of instruction is German, you are supposed to be proficient at a good level in written and spoken German. All university applicants whose native language is not German/who have not acquired their university entrance qualification at a German-speaking institution, have to provide evidence of TestDaF (level four in all examination parts), DSH (level two or three) or an equally matched language examination. Futhermore, a good command of English is useful because in the world of engineering English is the language of communication.
An internship before the start of the program is not required.
Admission requirement is the general or pertinent subject-related higher education entrance qualification (mostly the "Abitur"), or an equivalent qualification. Please click here to find more information on enrollment.
Here you find further information if you are an international applicant who does not have a German secondary education certificate.
The degree program starts every winter semester and lasts six semesters including the time spent on the Bachelor’s thesis.The winter semester begins on 1st October of each year. Since the lectures start later, the latest Semester Dates are published by the rector.
Studies start with an Orientation Week, which is to help the students on their first days at our university.
