In the Bachelor's Degree Programme Electrical Engineering, you will learn the fundamentals and methods of electrical engineering as well as gain basic scientific knowledge. You will measure and program and increase your understanding of the content you learn in laboratory internships and applied work. As part of your training, you have the opportunity to begin specialising in a subject area of electrical engineering and information technology.
The students have access to excellent laboratory and technical infrastructure. This includes
In the course of your studies, you will gain many interesting insights into practical work. For example, experts from internationally renowned organizations, such as AVL, BMW, Bosch, or the ETH Zurich, present current developments in guest lectures and courses. In addition, practical tasks are assigned in the form of seminar projects or addressed in the bachelor thesis.
You will also be actively supported by a dedicated team of Electrical Engineering Student Representatives as well as by learning communities such as the Dynamo Engineering Drawing Studio or the High-Voltage Drawing Studio.
Curriculum (in German)
In this degree programme, you have the opportunity to pursue studies in the following areas:
Mathematics: You will learn basic mathematical concepts and methods, such as functions, integral calculations, differential equations and the fundamentals of probability theory. In addition, you will learn how to use MATLAB/Simulink to solve mathematical problems.
Fundamentals of the Natural Sciences and Technical Computer Science: Among other things, you will learn the fundamentals of physics, optics, the quantum nature of light and matter, and learn structured programming. You will learn more about the structure and function of computer systems and learn which essential tasks are performed by operating systems.
Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering: You will learn fundamental knowledge and methods in electrical engineering and apply them, e.g. direct and alternating current circuits, electromagnetic energy and energy storage. Among other things, you will learn the basic laws that apply to the electrostatic field and the electric current field.
Electrical Engineering and Information Engineering: You will deepen your knowledge of energy technology and gain an overview of the components of the energy supply system. You will master basic information about electronic circuit technology and learn how to perform an analysis of and dimensioning on circuits. You will learn more about electrical drive technology and power electronics as well as about the transmission of information using analogue and digital methods.
Signals and Systems: You will deepen your knowledge in, for example, the fundamentals of measurement technology and the design of analogue and digital measuring instruments. You can dimension measuring chains correctly and implement them practically. In addition, you will acquire the ability to apply sensor systems practically.
From the 5th semester and onwards, you will specialise in one of the following areas:
Electrical engineering seeks to understand the study and application of electricity, electronics and electromagnetism in a large number of devices that we use. What makes this field so special is the wide range of sub-fields including automatics and robotics, microelectronics, power engineering and telecommunications, which bring you sheer endless opportunities and a great many possibilities to develop yourself on your chosen career path.
Sara supports international prospective students as International Student Ambassador.
In the bachelor's degree programme, students learn all the fundamental information, become familiar with the individual subfields of electrical engineering and grow to understand them. What I found particularly nice about the programme was that, if you were interested in doing a semester abroad, numerous destinations were available to you. Moreover, as a student in electrical engineering, you are immediately in great demand in industry. After only two semesters of the programme, it’s really easy to find an internship almost anywhere, and you can put your theoretical knowledge to the test.
Electrical engineering is omnipresent in society, whether it is used in the transmission and distribution of electrical energy, the development of new energy sources, microelectronics that are as small as a fingernail or to test plant components under high voltage.
TU Graz expertise in the field of electrical engineering is even used in modern locomotives, in medical diagnostic technology, in weather radars and in space missions. For example, the first flying hardware and software laboratory – ESA’s CUBE-SAT under the technical direction of TU Graz – started its mission in December 2019.
TU Graz has established itself as an important research partner in the electronics industry:
Excellent cooperation with industry offers researchers, students and graduates many opportunities to develop their innovative abilities.
General admission period: 11 January to 5 February 2021
Additional admission period: 6 February to 30 April 2021
General admission period: 12 July to 5 September 2021
Additional admission period: 6 September to 30 November 2021
On the one hand, the bachelor's programme provides you with an introduction to scientific logic and working methods, which is required to enter a more advanced master's programme. On the other hand, the professional opportunities for graduates are very extensive due to the breadth of the bachelor's programme, which are supplemented by in-depth studies in many areas.
Electrical engineers work in research, development and production departments, in energy supply and telecommunications companies and in companies in the automotive sector.
After completing the bachelor's degree programme, you can directly enrol in the following master’s degree programmes at TU Graz:
If you are interested in other master’s degree programmes at TU Graz, you can find information about admission on the respective pages for the master’s degree programmes.
In addition, the bachelor's degree offers you the opportunity to apply internationally for master's degree programmes.
