Further information provided by the department

  • Special features regarding teaching
    Very good teacher-student-teacher ratio: Small learning and exercise groups ensure a good learning environment, many student tutors; High percentage of exercises: The number of tutorial hours is always at least as high as the number of lecture hours in a class; Elite programme for supporting highly qualified students; very good facilities for computer-assisted teaching; supported learning for students to gain their own practical experience with circuits/hardware; mentoring programme for female students; strong links with Computer Science.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    Establishment of English-language degree courses (Electrical Systems Engineering and Computer Engineering (optional)); range of degree courses taught in German is supplemented with courses in English (Computer Engineering); students are recommended to spend a semester abroad at international partner universities (ECTS points can be transferred); intensive contact and cooperation with international research partners.
  • Exchange universities for stay abroads
    Aston University, Großbritannien; Illinois State University, USA; The University of Manchester, Vereinigtes Königreich; Stranmillis University College, Großbritannien; Georgia College & State University, USA; Piedmont College, USA; Kristianstad University, Schweden; Birmingham City University, Großbritannien
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    Excellently equipped laboratories in the departments; special laboratories: clean room, high-frequency measurement chamber; acoustics lab; solar simulator; test vehicles with hybrid drives, which the students can use for "tinkering" in an informal atmosphere; two excellently equipped "pool rooms" for computer-assisted teaching.
  • Special features regarding research activities
    Specialisation in optical communication technology and optoelectronics (collaboration with Physics, Chemistry); world records in data rates achieved via fibre optics; professorship in Signal and System Theory with funding from the Alfried Krupp von Bohlen
  • Support for founders
    Intensive cooperation with the central technology promotion offices of the university (e.g. Technology Transfer and Founders Center (TecUP), Garage33 etc.) organised by vice president for knowledge and technology transfer.
  • Other special features
    We are a comparatively small department that faces the resulting "challenges" as follows: comprehensive basic training in all major subjects of Electrical Engineering and specialisation in some key areas (e.g. Optical Communications Engineering); Close links with Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering and Physics); good contact is maintained between lecturers and students (easy for students to reach professors, short distances, early involvement of students in research projects).

(E&I)= Electrical / Information Engineering (IntDiscip)= Interdisciplinary programmes (IntDiscip)= very interdisciplinary and thus not classified;
As the ranking is done for the whole subject area, for the single "sub-subjects" it can happen that not all rank groups are represented in all criteria.
