Electrical Engineering and Information Technology

Bachelor of Science

Elektrotechnik und Informationstechnik, B.Sc.


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 Technical University of 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.

Starting with the fourth semester, students select one of six areas of specialisation: Automatic Systems (AUT), Computer-Aided Electrodynamics (CED), Computer Engineering (DT), Electrical Power Engineering (EET), Communication and Sensor Networks (KTS), Sensors, Actuators and Electronics (SAE).

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.
