All our study programmes are geared to the needs of industry and technology. The contents are characterised by the experience and broad professional competence of our University professors. The close connection between teaching, industry and research ensures the programmes’ topicality and alignment with the needs of tomorrow. The Faculty of Electrical Engineering offers a number of direct study programmes, which differ in terms of the course and study form as well as the level of degree qualification. In addition to the Diploma study programme, students also have the option of completing a Bachelor's or Master's degree.
The degree qualification allows graduates to be admitted to a teacher training study programme (vocational schools) at the TU Dresden
Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at Bachelor or Diploma level.
From the winter semester 2016/17 there will be a uniform Diploma and Bachelor’s study programme in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology on offer. After a uniform foundation study period students can choose one of the following fields of study from the fourth semester:
- Automation Technology and Technical Informatics
- Electrical Energy and Power Train Engineering
- Mechatronic Systems and Vehicle Mechatronics
- Communications Technology / Multimedia Technology
Changing between the Bachelor and the Diploma study programme is easy. Both study programmes can also be completed part-time.
Depending on the job offers from industry, the Bachelor's study programmes can also be studied cooperatively in conjunction with vocational training culminating in a Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) qualification.
Correspondence course in Electrical Engineering / Communication Technology
The correspondence course for the study programme of Electrical Engineering / Communication Technology enables students to study a programme culminating in a Diploma, in addition to their professional work. In addition to self-study components, this includes approx. 8 attendance days per semester (Saturdays), as well as a presence week in February and September. The proven distance learning study programme in Communication Technology was redesigned and now offers a broader scope with the degree qualification due to the wider selection of study disciplines in different areas of Electrical Engineering, in addition to the contents of Communication Technology.
Master’s in Electrical Engineering
The Master’s study programme in Electrical Engineering enables a consecutive continuation of studies culminating in the Master's degree M.Sc. (in 2 semesters with a Dipl.-Ing. (FH) degree and 240 ECTS or in 3 semesters with a B.Eng. and 210 ECTS or 180 ECTS incl. work experience).
