A job as an engineer in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology is the right choice for you if you are interested in natural sciences and you are curious how machines, devices and systems based on them work. Many innovations and their technical progression depend on electrical and information technology. When you study Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, you will learn how electrical energy can be implemented in a multitude of technical fields. New applications, now commonplace for all of us, are fast internet communication, automotive electronics or smart home technology. None of this would work without secure electrical energy supply, control and regulation. During your studies, you will acquire the essential know-how for all of these and other electrical engineering topics and then go on to decide on a key focus area in an advanced semester. At DIT you can choose between the study majors "General Electrical Engineering", "Automation Engineering" and "Communications Engineering and Electronics".

Young engineers of the Bachelor of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology course at Deggendorf Institute of Technology help to shape the modern world after completing their studies. There are job opportunities in industry, in trade, as self-employed persons, in the public sector, with associations and research institutions.

Electrical engineering is a very innovative engineering science and requires permanent further training even after graduation. You can find profiles of our graduates in our alumni section.

Career prospects

Electrical energy makes up our modern and industrial world. It is used to generate heat and light, to drive devices, machines and motors and to transmit information. Being an engineer in  Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, you drive technical progress in this field. You make valuable contributions to Germany's ability as a leading industrial competitor. The job prospects for graduates of the Electrical Engineering and Information Technology programme are correspondingly positive.

As an electrical engineer you ensure that electronics work the way people imagine them to. This requires mathematical calculations and programming of executable software. Through tests and trial runs of devices and systems you are able to verify that your theoretical concepts work in practice. If you would like to work as an electrical engineer, you can expect a very varied work day. Skills in dealing with people and good communication with colleagues from other disciplines are very important for a successful cooperation. Administrative work is part of your labor profile as well, for instance in technical documentation and establishing standards.

You will be needed in a plethora of branches of this industry: automotive, telecommunications, food, chemistry, medical and microsystems technology, aerospace, etc. Public service and  consulting engineers also offer jobs in the field.
