Short Description

Electrical Engineering is offered as a vocational subject within the bachelor's programme Technical Education. In addition, a second teaching subject must be studied. Please note the subject combination options.

Within the vocational subject area of Electrical Engineering, students acquire both specialist and teaching methodological skills.

In the specialist area, students initially gain basic knowledge of mathematics, science and electrical engineering. Foundations from the area of Computer Engineering complement the range of courses, offering students a broad basis. After completing this stage, students may expand on individual content from the areas of automation technology, power engineering and microelectronics in an orientation module.

The area of teaching methodology is strongly geared towards the teaching profession, enabling students to take on small teaching assignments at a very early stage. With teaching methodological support, students supervise learners with no previous knowledge of Electrical Engineering, enabling them to recognise the difficulties and misconceptions that beginners have in the subject of Electrical Engineering. In additional courses, students learn the teaching methodological foundations required to enable them to plan and implement their own teaching elements at a vocational school by the end of the Bachelor’s degree Programme.

Areas of Focus

  • Automation technology
  • Microelectronics
  • Power engineering
Course Content

Students complete the following specialist modules during the degree programme:

  • Mathematics I and II (basics of mathematics)
  • Basics of Electrical Engineering (electrical engineering foundations of networks, fields, semiconductors, etc. as well as their historical examination)
  • Basics of Science
  • Computer Engineering I and II (computer engineering basics as well as an introduction to and specialisation in programming languages)
  • Electrical Engineering Laboratory Practicals (application of electrical engineering and IT foundations on the basis of individual laboratory experiments)
  • Orientation module (basics of power engineering, automation technology and microelectronics)

Furthermore, students complete the following teaching methodology modules:

  • Electrical Engineering Projects (application of electrical engineering and IT basics on the basis of projects with a reference to teaching)
  • Basics of Teaching Methodology I (foundations of scientific study, teaching methodological concepts)
  • Basics of Teaching Methodology II (lesson planning, implementation and evaluation, teaching plans)
Recommended Abilities

In addition to the skills required in the teaching profession (e.g. an interest in imparting knowledge, enjoyment of teaching, the ability to work under pressure, patience and empathy), in the area of Electrical Engineering students should also possess strong powers of imagination and abstraction, an interest in mathematical and technical issues and the ability to think logically.

Career Opportunities
  • Teaching at a vocational school (vocational school, vocational grammar school, technical school)
  • Teaching activities for in-company training and further training
Possible Further Degree Programmes

Under certain conditions, admission to the following Master''s programme is also possible. More detailed information can be found in the respective admission regulations. If you have any questions, please contact the course advice of the desired Master''s programme:
