Electrical engineering is a highly exciting and dynamic field of activity at the center of innovative developments in technology and industry.

The aim of the electrical engineering course on the Minden campus of the Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences is to provide students with a broad technical basis and to train them to think in terms of systems in order to prepare them for future tasks. The practical teaching and the close interlinking with corporate practice enable the teaching and application of important practical skills.

Thanks to the practice-integrated form of study, what has been learned can be directly applied in the cooperating companies. Supported by a high proportion of laboratory internships with modern measurement technology, not only a high level of application relevance is achieved, but the typical engineering work in committed teams is also trained during the studies.


In the practice-integrated bachelor's degree in electrical engineering, practical phases in the company (eleven weeks) alternate with theoretical phases at the university (twelve weeks). The students prepare for the theoretical phases during the practical phases using the literature provided. Building on the basic modules, the course offers a broad education in the electrical engineering areas of hardware, software, automation technology and communications technology.

This is rounded off by selected qualifications from business administration and project management. In three practical modules and as part of the bachelor thesis, the students carry out projects that are directly related to operational practice in coordination with the lecturers. In this context, company-specific topics and contents are deepened in order to prepare the students for the special tasks in operational practice.

Abitur or advanced technical college entrance qualification or previous education recognized as equivalent and proof of practical work in a company during your studies. An apprenticeship or internship or an employment relationship is required for the practice-integrated course. Evidence of a cooperation agreement with the company must be provided.

You can find all access options (with a technical qualification / Abitur, with foreign certificates, with professional qualifications, change of course / university etc.) under the point "Application" (green button).


In addition to the classic areas of communications and energy technology, electrical engineering forms the basis of all modern automated, networked and intelligent systems. Be it ABS in the car, modern communication technology or the rapidly developing automation technology of Industry 4.0: Electrical engineering is always the key discipline. Accordingly, electrical engineers are already sought-after specialists in almost all industrial sectors and all company sizes - a trend that will even increase in the future.

In addition to the development of hardware and software, there are numerous possible uses in the planning and implementation of customer-specific solutions or in the organizational area. This is supplemented by excellent professional development prospects both as a specialist and as a manager.
