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.

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.

Michael Bauer

2005 | Electrical Engineering and Information Technology with focus on Automation Engineering

Michael Bauer: "To this day I still meet with former fellow students in my professional environment."

Career Development

In the summer of 2005 I completed my studies in the field of electrical engineering and information technology with the focus on automation technology as the last graduating class as Dipl.-Ing.(FH) at the University of Applied Sciences in Deggendorf. Before starting my professional life, I travelled through New Zealand and Australia from October to February 2006, before I started working as a test field engineer for small and large engines at the Loher motor factory in Ruhstorf.

During my two years of work I was able to build up my specialist knowledge of motors with/without explosion protection (Ex d, Ex i, Ex e) and generators, which was very helpful when I joined Finergy AG, based in Voerde/NRW, as "Sales and Service Engineer" for wind power generators and converters. In September 2011 I changed to Siemens AG and was responsible as "Quality Manager in Project" for preventive and operative quality planning and assurance in transnational projects for generators for the entire product life cycle. Due to the job requirements at both, Flender AG and Siemens AG, I had to make many business trips in Europe and China to get to know the country and its people directly on site.

In May 2017 I changed to the engineering office IB Graf for electrotechnical building equipment in Pfarrkirchen, which I took over one year later as owner with the current company name IB Bauer+Graf. The field of activity covers a wide range of tasks in the most diverse sub-trade from industrial buildings to the planning of villas for high voltage/low voltage applications and lighting design, taking into account the installation depth and safety-relevant equipment required by the client.

Reminiscing allowed: remember your student days

I have fond memories of my studies: learning and living in Deggendorf corresponded to my ideas and was very structured during my eight semesters, based on the lecture plan. I had a certain classmateship with my fellow students, and the professors were always interested in communicating knowledge in a comprehensible way and responding directly to questions during the lecture. The lecture style and the experiments in the laboratories also reminded me to a large extent of my school days and the documents provided for the lecture were very well prepared.
To this day I still meet former fellow students in my professional environment.

What advice would you give to today's students?

My time at Siemens and my planning office has always shown me and continues to show me new development opportunities to advance professionally and personally. I always accepted these opportunities and thus followed a certain road map that life and the professional world offered me. During my studies, the professors also taught me that constant learning in a professional environment, including language skills in English, awaits graduates and is indispensable. I can underline this statement as fully correct. The studies in Deggendorf enabled me to pursue my career so far and were a very good decision on my path in life.

 

Arnold Knott

2004 | Electrical Engineering and Information Technology

Arnold Knott completed his studies in 2004 as a graduate engineer (University of Applied Sciences). He now lives in Denmark and works as a professor at the Technical University in Copenhagen.

Career development

2004: Graduate Engineer for Electrical Engineering at Deggendorf Institute of Technology

2004 – 2009: Hardware Engineer ved Harman/Becker Automotive Systems GmbH

2007 – 2010: PhD student at DTU Elektro in Electronics Group

2010 – 2013: Assistant Professor at DTU Elektro in Electronics Group

Since 2013: Associate Professor at DTU Elektro in Electronics Group

Reminiscing allowed: remember your student days

The “Fachhochschule (FH) Deggendorf”, now Deggendorf Insitute of Technology (DIT), was very new when I was studying. Very close relationships to professors. We had a great form of interaction and learned many basic things which I still use today: especially in the first semesters.

What advice would you give to today's students?

Dare to ask questions! The professors (who I now belong to myself), also only cook with water. Focus on the ball, not on the man! You are the foundation of the future: Make the best of society.
