  • Special features regarding the equipment
    In order to consolidate the contents of the lectures and apply acquired knowledge in practice, numerous laboratory events and exercises and students projects are held during degree courses in the faculty of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Information Technology. The laboratories are excellently equipped and meet industry standards. During the laboratory activities, practical skills are taught that not only help students to get an idea of​the practical application but prepare them for their future careers as well.
  • Special features regarding research and development
    The EIT faculty has many focal points in the area of applied research and development. This also results in interesting technology transfer into practice. Sensor technology research at the Electrical Engineering and Information Technology faculty is concentrated in the Institute for Sensor and Information Systems (ISIS).
  • Support for founders
    University-wide support by the Center of Competence and the start-up laboratory (G-Lab).
  • Other special features
    The students of the Electrical Engineering and Information Technology faculty have the opportunity to do a so-called StudiumPLUS or combined degree (Verbundstudium) in cooperation with a company. During their degree course, the students are integrated into the company, which gives them additional practical training. As a rule, a StudiumPLUS/combined degree means the students are employed by the company, which means they get paid for the duration of the degree programme.
