Prerequisites

We are happy to receive many different open-minded school leavers from all types of school. It is absolutely not necessary to have attended a higher technical education institute! Anyone with an interest in science or technology and a reasonable grasp of mathematics can study electrical engineering and information technology. To enrol in the bachelor programme Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, German at B2 level is required.

Duration of course

The Bachelor's course nominally lasts 6 semesters, and the Master's courses based on it generally take place over 4 semesters. A small number of students complete it in less time; many require significantly longer, not least because they undertake paid employment alongside their studies. Anyone studying full-time should be able to complete the Bachelor's plus Master's courses within 12 semesters.

Content

Electrical engineering and information technology deals with extremely modern topics, for example: 4th generation mobile internet, photonics, microsystem technology, nanoelectronics, traffic telematics und distributed intelligence. We all use electronic devices on a regular basis — mobile phones, computers, entertainment electronics. In industry, automated systems control complicated production processes and information processing takes place on all levels. In order to understand such systems, a sound knowledge of basic scientific principles is required.

Foundational teaching starts in the first year of the course with mathematics, physics, electrical engineering, programming and data communication. The second and third years of the bachelor's course offer broad, methodical scientific training in all areas of electrical engineering and information technology. In addition, business administration, project management and soft skills are also taught. In technology, lifelong learning is unavoidable: the ability to independently absorb knowledge to solve new problems and to correctly classify and analyse new developments is particularly encouraged in the course.

Programme of study

For admission, see: http://etit.tuwien.ac.at/lehre/bachelorstudium/

You can obtain the brochure "Flight 235", containing all the information you might need at the start of your studies, from the Studies Department. The foundations of the course start with Mathematics, Physics, Electrical Engineering, Programming, Data Communications and Digital Systems. The second and third years of the Bachelor's course offer broad, methodical scientific training in all areas of electrical engineering and information technology. In addition, business administration, project management and soft skills are also taught. With technology, lifelong learning is essential: particular attention is devoted in this university course to developing the ability to absorb knowledge independently, to solve new problems and to classify and analyse new developments correctly.

Study conditions

The equipment available at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology is state of the art, the available space is sufficient in terms of quality and quantity. Neither the bachelor's course nor the follow-on master's course in Electrical Engineering are oversubscribed; there are plenty of free spaces and sufficient mentoring staff on all courses.

Normally, the course begins on 1 October in the winter semester, although it is also possible to start on 1 March in the summer semester. The admissions process is simple: it starts once your details have been submitted on the internet to the Department for Studies and Examinations at the University. For those just starting the course, there is a voluntary mathematics refresher course, an introduction to measuring devices and the orientation course "Electrical Engineering — of all subjects!“.
