    Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (B.Eng.)

    The Electrical Engineering and Information Technology degree programme is the logical consequence of the fact that these two fields will continue to converge and to develop dynamically in the future.
    Nowadays, the most important innovations involve a combination of hardware and software. Electrotechnical products are developed and manufactured through the use of software.

    Information technology has been gaining in importance in the field of electrical engineering. As a result, there are very few currently developed products that have not been developed and manufactured using computer technology. Software is also used within the products themselves to ensure the seamless functioning of processes that can, in some cases, be highly complex. This also concerns the highly technological installations in the field of electrical energy technology. This evolution will be taken into account thanks to a broad education in computer technology, programming technology, software engineering, and other areas of work within the fields of technical computer science and information technology.

    Information Systems and Management (B.Sc.)

    Training for information systems managers is characterized by linking economics-related fields (particularly business administration) and the computer science field with a focus on operational IT systems.

    Occupational fields for information systems managers are based on business and management-related tasks and the opportunities that information technology offers when it comes to providing support for those tasks. The fundamental principle in this regard is that “process drives IT”. This means that information technology must not be used for its own purposes; instead, it must align itself to the tasks and requirements of business and management in order to help the institution in question to effectively and efficiently achieve its business objectives. It is the information systems manager’s job to act as the bridge between the business world characterized by business administration and the opportunities presented by information technology.

    The Information Systems and Management degree programme therefore also offers both a solid foundation in business administration and its related fields, as well as an in-depth insight into the core modules of theoretical and, in particular, practical and applied computer science.

    Faculty of Process Engineering

    Process Engineering (B.Eng.)

    Process engineering involves the manufacturing of consumer goods and mass-produced products, such as food, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and construction materials and is one of the most comprehensive and interdisciplinary areas of engineering. It focuses on procedures for the conversion of materials and energy, i.e. the performance of mechanical, chemical, biological, and thermal processes in which the composition, properties, and/or the physical state of the raw material is changed.

    During the course of this degree programme, we address the diverse nature of the profession of process engineer via a hands-on approach to learning the scientific and engineering foundations and the basic methodology behind designing processes, equipment, and systems. State-of-the-art computer-aided processes are also used for this.
    From the fifth semester onwards, you will deepen your knowledge in one of the three specializations: general process engineering, computer-aided process engineering, or bioprocess engineering. During the sixth semester, known as the practical semester, you will apply your knowledge in an industrial setting for the first time.

    Social Work: Lifelong Education (B.A.)

    The degree programme in Lifelong Education is aimed at educators or child care workers and is designed for those already in employment.

    The demands of educational work have become significantly more stringent across all areas of education. Challenges, such as those posed by migration, inclusion, and education “from the very start” lead to a growing need for highly qualified teaching staff. This includes dealing competently with the social environment of children and young people, their families, the school, and other partners, as well as the professional management and quality assurance within their own institution. The degree programme addresses all of these requirements by taking existing qualifications and the knowledge gained on the job and further developing them on an academic basis in close connection with their professional practice.

     

    Overview

    Degree:Bachelor of Arts
    Program duration:8 semesters
    Admission restrictions:

    Numerus Clausus

    Minimum GPAs for the previous semester (in German)

    Language of instruction:German
    Subject distribution:foundation in human sciences and ethics and methodological principles (18.0%), organization, management, and practical research (18.0%), “early education” or “childhood and youth” specialization (21.0%), “adult and family education” specialization (21.0%), theory-practice transfer (22.0%)
    Special features:
    • Part-time degree programme for educators or child care professionals
    • Recognition of the first two semesters due to having obtained a degree from a Technical Academy for Social Education
    • Special “lifelong...” focus
    Unlike many other degree programmes for educators or child care professionals, the Lifelong Education part-time degree programme does not just specialize in early childhood education. Depending on the chosen specialization, we also focus on children aged 6 and above, young people, and adults.
    There are three main considerations for this concept:
    1. Educational work is always shared work throughout the entire life of a person, covering their upbringing and their educational development. Working with children therefore also involves working with parents and guardians. And it is not only where particular challenges, such as migration or disability, are present that it is necessary to react to the counseling and educational needs of the participating adults.
    2. The teaching field has become extremely varied and covers early education, nurseries, youth work, the provision of residential support to children and young persons, and special education. We aim to meet requirements across this entire range.
    3. The decision to pursue a part-time degree programme for professionals also means that students are taking a conscious step towards improving their own educational development. Alongside an interest in underpinning the qualifications used in their day-to-day work and establishing the formal basis for the next steps in their career, students may also commence a degree programme in the hope of switching to a different field of work. By focusing on lifelong education, the degree programme offers students the opportunity to gain credentials in early education and in other educational disciplines. Rather than focusing on just one area of education, our degree programme allows for a great deal of flexibility when selecting specializations, which introduces a diverse range of professional experiences and interests and goes on to provide a wide array of career options.
    Facts and figures:The Lifelong Education part-time degree programme has been available since the 2010/2011 winter semester.
      Admission semester:Winter semester
      Beginning in the summer semester is only possible for transfer students starting at a higher semester (application period: 15 November 2019 – 15 January 2020)
