Today, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology is omnipresent. It affects human life in many different ways. The Bachelor of Science programme Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (etit) at the TU Darmstadt enables graduates to participate in planning and realising electro-technical and information-technical components and systems. In the first four semesters, the students undergo a broad scientific education in the fundamental modules of the field.
Apart from subject-specific qualifications, the Electrical Engineering and Information Technology Bachelor’s programme also comprises interdisciplinary competences such as project management, languages, and business studies.
The study programme is research as well as practice-oriented. Within the framework of laboratory internships, theoretical knowledge is tried and tested in practical applications throughout the entire programme.
Please find detailed information on the programme in the module handbook.

How to Prepare for the Programme
For a beginning, start with TU Darmstadt's own specific Online Self-Assessment tool.
As mathematical knowledge is very important for the study programme, the Fachbereich etit (Department) organises a Mathe-Vorkurs (supporting mathematics course for beginners).
Alternatively/additionally it is recommended that beginners participate in the online mathematics pre-course offered by the Department of Mathematics.
Please do also check the general information on pre-courses.
Participating in an orientation week at the beginning of the first semester of the studies is a mandatory part of the programme.
Advice for Prospective B.Sc. Students
The foundation of the Electrical Engineering and Information Technology programme at the TU Darmstadt consists of modules from the areas of Electrical Engineering, Information Technology (including Informatics), Mathematics, and Physics. A good technical and scientific-mathematical understanding is imperative for a successful completion of the programme.
Mathematics – Why? What? What for? Who? How? Where? Further information? You will find answers to these questions here.
In view of their future professional life, students should be willing to cooperate with colleagues from other disciplines. The same applies to the cooperation with foreign partners, customers, or suppliers, as nowadays, a vast majority of employers relevant for engineers is interconnected at an international level. In this context, foreign language skills are also important. Furthermore, English in particular is required for the reception of literature.

General Information: With the Bachelor of Science, the students will acquire a first professional qualification. However, the Master of Science is considered the standard qualification at TU Darmstadt. For these reasons it is recommended that students complete a Master’s degree.|
Please note that admission to the Master’s Degree programme may also depend on additional requirements. This particularly applies to non-consecutive courses of study (meaning with a Bachelor’s degree in a different area of focus or field of study than the desired Master’s degree programme) and to applicants of other universities. If you have any questions, please contact the respective departmental advisor’s office.
