TU Graz/ Studying and Teaching/ Degree and Certificate Programmes/


Electrical engineering is the basic technology for everything that makes the modern world work. From electric cars to smartphones to high-tech industrial devices and the energy revolution – electrical engineering is in demand everywhere you look. Graz and Styria are an epicentre of the international electronics and automotive industry, actively shaping the future in these areas. It is almost as if Nikola Tesla – one of the greatest electrical engineers and inventors of all time – had a hunch about this, seeing how he studied at the TU Graz over 150 years ago. Pursuing a degree in electrical engineering at TU Graz is therefore an excellent choice: co-designing technologies that move the world, best job and future prospects, and, finally, a grand history.

Still unsure? Here, future and current students, teachers, researchers and graduates of TU Graz talk about what fascinates them about studying their specialty and working in electrical engineering, and how they are helping to shape the world of tomorrow.

More details about the degree programme and admission

Cornelia Gastzner

For the degree programme Electrical Engineering and Audio Engineering, creativity, curiosity and out-of-the-box thinking are needed – especially when it comes to developing new products and ideas or to initiating innovative changes.

Cornelia Gastzner is applying for the joint degree programme Electrical Engineering and Audio Engineering of TU Graz and University of Music and Performing Arts Graz.

Theo Lehrhofer

With the online courses in mathematics and programming I can prepare well for the beginning of my studies.

Theo Lehrhofer enrolled in the bachelor's degree programme Electrical Engineering.

Josef Kröll

I am particularly fascinated by the strong support that we students of Electrical Engineering at TU Graz get from professors, and the camaraderie among us students is also quite special.

Josef Kröll is a 4th-semester Electrical Engineering student.

Sophie Steger

You encounter electrical engineering all around you in everyday life. During my studies, I get to know and understand the world around me better. I also like the way mathematics can describe everything so elegantly and beautifully.

Sophie Steger is a 6th-semester Electrical Engineering student.

Katrin Friedl

Energy – especially electrical energy – is something we all need, and I find it exciting to be a part of that.

Katrin Friedl works at the Institute of Electrical Power Systems and is a lecturer in the degree programme Electrical Engineering.

Michael Gadringer

At TU Graz, we are very well connected to industry. And we are involved in world-class research.

Michael Gadringer is assistant professor at the Institute of Microwave and Photonic Engineering of TU Graz.

Alexander Bergmann

We are shaping the world of tomorrow – from digitisation to the energy revolution. Research in electrical engineering is interdisciplinary, diverse and cooperative.

Alexander Bergmann is a professor of Electronic Sensor Systems and head of the institute of the same name at TU Graz.

Annette Mütze

Electrical engineering does not buy into hypes. It has always been here and will always be needed.

Annette Mütze is a professor of Electric Drives and Machines and head of the institute of the same name at TU Graz.

Christian Paar

I found the variety and options in the degree programme Electrical Engineering fascinating.

Christian Paar completed his doctoral programme in electrical engineering at TU Graz. Today, he leads research projects in the field of electromobility at Magna Steyr in Graz.

Andreas Zehetner

I already built up an international network during my degree programme.

Andreas Zehetner studied Electrical Engineering and Audio Engineering at TU Graz. Now, he works as an engagement manager at the business consultancy McKinsey, where he supports companies in digital transformation.
