DESCRIPTION OF SUBJECT

The medium of instruction in this course is German.

Engineers are often enganged in the development, maintenance and testing of next-generation technologies. However, it often depends on economic aspcets, whether developments make it into real products, or not. The course Electrical and Information Engineering with Management therefore combines the two disciplines engineering and economics. Students get to know both, the business administration and the engineering fundamentals. At the same time, the study forms the basis for a research-oriented master program.

OCCUPATIONAL FIELDS AND CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

Subsequent non-teaching occupational fields

Graduates of the bachelor program are qualified to take positions in technical sales, technical purchasing, production, logistics, management consultancy and controlling. Typical companies come from the information and communication technology industry, the energy industry, the aerospace industry or the automotive industry. The specific occupation can be dependent on the chosen specialization and the orientation of the bachelor thesis.

Teacher training (Lehramt)

No courses available for students training to be teachers at state-run schools

Possibilities for additional qualifications

Graduates qualify for admittance to a Master’s Program in the disciplines:

  • Master of Science Management and Electrical Engineering

OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS OF PROGRAM

Detailed list of available courses in online course prospectus

Stages of study / curricula / description of modules

The academic training in the first three semesters includes fundamentals in three areas:

  • Methods and General Basics: Mathematics and Computer Science
  • Subject-specific basics: Electrical Engineering
  • Subject-specific basics: Business Administration

As of the fourth semester, specialization starts. The courses cover the various sub-areas of electrical engineering and information technology as well as business administration. The specialization subjects reflect the research areas of the departments of physics / electrical engineering and economics. Key competences such as methods of scientific work and teamwork are also taught in the subject-specific context of the specialization subjects. The experimental training takes place in the laboratory for electrical engineering.

Course schedule


Compulsory, elective and optional

All basic modules are core subjects. Advancing, several options are available, depending on the chosen specialization subject.

Typical course types

At the beginning of the course of study, during the teaching of the basics, the teaching takes place mainly in the form of lectures and accompanying exercises and tutorials. In lectures a professor mainly teaches and students mainly listen. Within the corresponding exercises, individual topics and questions from the lecture will be taken up and discussed in depth. Exercises are usually offered by the provider of the lecture or the respective scientific staff. Tutorials are led by senior students. Tutorials serve to deepen the contents of methodically oriented subjects. Later on in the course of study the methods of teaching increasingly change to seminars and project work. In contrast to a lecture, seminars are more geared towards student participation. The topics of the seminar are discussed between students and professors; students can do presentations. Project work means mainly working and researching independently.

Major fields

The study program Electrical Engineering / Information Technology with Management includes the two specialization subjects Electrical Engineering and Business Administration. Both are to be taken. Within the specialization subjects, currently relevant economic and informatics issues are included in the research and practical units of the program.

General studies

General Studies account for 10 - 25% of the study programme. These courses train key competences for subsequent career fields. By building their own individual specialities, students are able to shape and amplify their academic profile.

The General Studies (GS) form the complementary studies that students can take on beyond the scientific studies in order to acquire individually fitting knowledge and competences. General Studies also include courses on general academic education and career exploration. In the study program Electrical Engineering / Information Technology with Management, methodical subjects (analysis of economic data, statistics) are integrated into the General Studies. In the elective area, students can choose from the GS program offered by the entire university.

Practical

Internships are generally recommended. In the search for internships, the students are supported by the Career Center of the University of Bremen, the Office for Practice and International Affairs of the Department of Economics and the Study Center of the Department of Physics / Electrical Engineering.

Study abroad

A semester abroad is not required, however recommended. It is advisable to plan a stay abroad in good time in order to be able to integrate it into the course of studies.

Assistance in organizing a semester abroad is offered by the Office for Practice and International Affairs of the Department of Economics and the Study Center of the Department of Physics / Electrical Engineering.

Exams forms

Examinations are set alongside the respective modules. Among the forms of examination is the classical written examination, which varies in duration depending on the subject. In some subjects exams are conducted electronically. Oral examinations, papers and project work are offered primarily in advanced studies. In some subjects, so-called portfolios (“smaller" exams) take place during the lecture period. Written exams and oral examinations usually take place after the lecture period.

APPLICATION AND ENROLMENT

Recommended abilities/ target groups/ requirements placed on students

The study program Electrical Engineering / Information Technology with Management to a large extent requires engagement in  informatics and statistical and mathematical methods. That's why students should definitely be interested in technology as well as in business topics. The following key competences make an easy start into this study program: teamwork, communication skills and willingness to learn.

Admission requirements

General qualification for university entrance or specific higher education entrance qualification (e.g. Abitur, Einstufungsprüfung).

Gute Englischkenntnisse werden empfohlen. Englischkenntnisse auf dem B2-Niveau müssen bei der Wahl des Schwerpunkts BWL nachgewiesen werden.
