Why should I study electrical engineering

Should I study electrical engineering?

Electrical engineering is an engineering science in which knowledge from mathematics and physics, but also from applied disciplines such as computer science, merge.
Bachelor and master graduates will find interesting fields of activity in energy technology, electronics, communications engineering and computer science after completing their studies.
The fields of work are not only in the electrical engineering branch itself. Graduates of electrical engineering are to a large extent also in demand in related disciplines of the economy as in-demand experts with electrical engineering and IT knowledge.

Where can I study electrical engineering?

The areas of application are diverse. This is also the case with the offer at technical colleges and universities. There are study opportunities in electrical engineering and related courses at almost 150 institutes across Germany.
Some universities introduce themselves below. I hope that more universities will be added in the near future.

Are you missing your high shoes?
This page is an offer to universities to introduce themselves to (potential) students.
If your university is missing, speak to your student council / your dean /….
I like to publish further profiles of electrical engineering courses here (free of charge!).

Is studying electrical engineering something for me?

Ultimately, of course, you have to decide for yourself. Basically, you should inform yourself as much as possible beforehand.

The main questions here can be:

  • Am I suitable for an engineering degree?
  • What are my strengths and weaknesses?

Thousands of high school graduates ask themselves these and similar questions every year. After all, you don't want to bet on the wrong horse when choosing a subject and later even be thrown off at full gallop.

In order to support you in your decision-making process, RWTH Aachen University offers a self-assessment for study orientation.

SelfAssessment means self-assessment. The Self Assessment offers prospective students the opportunity to get to know the requirements of certain degree programs better and to receive personal feedback on their strengths and weaknesses for the degree.

What is the Self Assessment about?

The tasks in the self-assessment reflect the requirements that are set at the beginning of the course. Depending on the field of study, this involves tasks on mathematics and logical reasoning, but also on study motivation and motivation.

Free self-assessment

Anyone who would like to use the support in choosing a course of study can take part in the SelfAssessment free of charge.

How long does the self assessment take?

The processing of the Self Assessment takes a total of 90 to 120 minutes. At first glance, that's a lot of time. However, one must consider that the decision to study has profound effects on the following years. The self assessment can be interrupted in the meantime and continued later.
What does the feedback on the results look like?

How is the feedback done?

Immediately after completing all tasks, you will receive feedback on their results. The individual tasks are explained and their significance for the course is explained. The detailed feedback on the results should serve as a decision-making aid, which also shows options for further study preparation.

What do you have to do to take part in the self assessment?

The various Self Assessments can be called up on the home page with a click of the mouse. In order to take part in a SelfAssessment, you usually have to register on the home page with a user name and password. Personal access to the advisory process will then be sent by email. You can use this access data to log in again later to continue processing. This link takes you directly to the RWTH Aachen Self Assessment

TIP - Information on studying electrical engineering

What can you expect from your studies?

You can get a good first insight into this question in a personal conversation with a study advisor on site.

Another way to get information in advance is the free study guides of the distance learning universities.

Here you can get information without obligation.

Free study guides can be obtained from the renowned distance learning universities, for example

Study group Darmstadt (e.g. bachelor's degree in electrical engineering and information technology or master's degree in applied mechatronics)

Wilhelm Büchner University (e.g.: Bachelor's degree in electrical engineering and information technology)

If you want you can then for 4 weeks of study free of charge and without obligation testing.

The best thing to do is to have the study guide sent to you and get an idea for yourself.

You can get the study guides free of charge from the following links:
Study group Darmstadt
Wilhelm Büchner University
