Electrical Engineering in Paderborn

What would your life be like without a smartphone or even a car? You realize how useful and convenient these things are only when they have disappeared. This makes you realize what impact the achievements of electrical engineering have and will continue to have on our daily life.
Without those Microsystems' technologies, no state-of-the-art diagnostic methods, e.g. computer tomography, could be further developed. Power electronics and energy technology play an important role in providing the application of renewable energies. This and much more has been developed by engineers who, in the majority of cases, studied electrical engineering. 


Being part of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Mathematics, we offer with our 15 professorships a broad variety of courses, which give a fair view of the diversity of electrical engineering, also in combination with other disciplines, such as computer science, business sciences or educational science, resulting in the programs computer engineering, industrial engineering with business studies focussing on electrical engineering or electrical engineering having an educational part.

The Paderborn department of electrical engineering provides an extensive and diversified choice of courses within electrical engineering. Within their first semesters, new students will encounter the principles of electrical engineering, mathematics, physics, mechanics and computer science in order to establish a basis and common standards for all students in scientific disciplines. It is therefore not vital whether you have already done any programming, participated in advanced courses for mathematics or chosen physics until high school graduation. For further details concerning your first semester in Paderborn, browse the course schedules.
