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.

General note: With the Bachelor of Science degree, students acquire a first degree qualifying them for a profession. However, at the Technical University of Darmstadt the Master of Science is the standard degree. Therefore it is recommended that students complete a Master's programme.

The foundation of the Electrical Engineering and Information Technology programme at the Technical University of 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.

Getting startet at university!

On this website you will find orientation and information about the first steps into the study program, important preliminary courses and the orientation week. Get to know the university, ask your questions and find support and advice.

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 Technical University of 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.

The job opportunities for electrical engineers are extremely diverse. In this context, the electrical and electronics industry ranks first. As electrical technology is a key technology of numerous fields of engineering, electrical engineering is closely linked in many ways to industries such as mechanical engineering, the aerospace industry, the automotive industry and medical engineering. Other potential employers of electrical engineers are companies in the field of information and communications technology, in power engineering, and in automation engineering. Moreover, a significant number of graduates choose the path of doctoral studies at a university or a research institute for their career start.
