Program structure

During the foundation course  (semesters 1 and 2), you will primarily learn the fundamental mathematical, scientific and technical principles. The examinations for this part of the programme are designed to train you in the correct learning methods and lay the foundation for studying towards your degree.

The advanced course (semesters 3 to 7) covers the main core and specialist modules relevant to your future career. Numerous internships demonstrate and reinforce how theoretical knowledge is applied in practice. You will spend your fifth semester on industrial placement.

The practical semester gives you the chance to apply the theoretical knowledge you have acquired so far in a highly vocational engineering role. This gives you an understanding for the interrelation between theory and practice and prepares you systematically for your future career.

From the sixth semester on, you can start specialising  in energy and automation engineering or information and communications technology. Both specialisations run for two semesters and train you for roles in current key sectors. Deciding which path you which to take clearly paves the way for the career you wish to pursue according to your particular interests and aims. Classes overarching the specialisations address the increasing networking between individual disciplines.

You will complete your degree by writing your bachelor’s thesis. Upon successfully completing the programme, the university of applied sciences will award you the academic degree of Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) .

Dual study

    1. Programme with extended practice – practical and flexible!
The programme with extended practice combines a regular bachelor’s degree programme at the university with intensive practical placements at one of our partners relating to your academic subject matter. Students can select this “sandwich” option until semester 4.
    2. Combined programme – study and train at the same time!
A combined programme enables you to gain a fully accredited vocational qualification while you are studying for your bachelor’s degree – a particularly appealing advantage for many companies!
We offer the following combined vocational tracks as part of the degree programme in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at Kempten University of Applied Sciences:

  • Electronics engineer for devices and systems
  • Electronics engineer for operating technology
  • Electronics engineer for automation technology
  • Electronics engineer for energy and building technology

You can find further information about “university dual” on our website.


Professional environment:

The electrical industry, but other sectors too, spans a range of different roles in areas such as research, planning, development, production and commissioning, even in sales and customer service. The main pillars of this industry lie in the traditional fields of energy technology and automation engineering.

Information and communications technology is also currently booming. Besides jobs in the industry, electrical engineers can also expect to find interesting employment opportunities with energy suppliers, telecommunications companies, in radio and TV, research institutes, transport companies, engineering offices, hospitals and state facilities.

Career prospects:

The boom in information technology has generated enormous demand for engineers specialising in data and information technology. At the same time, the classical fields such as energy and automation technology are also growing and thus looking to expand their workforce. In other words, as an electrical engineering and information technology graduate, you can expect excellent career opportunities. Local prospects

The proportion of software and sector-related service providers such as consultancies, service and training is growing in all areas. By now, these engineering-relates roles account for half of the labour market for electrical engineers. This means electrical engineers specialised in the interface between hardware and software are particularly highly sought after in the industry.

Fields of activity:

  • Smart grid projects in renewable energy technology
  • Incorporating artificial intelligence into production processes
  • Software development healthcare applications
