Engineering Education Information Technology - Electrical Engineering (B.Sc.)

General Information

In our modern world, information is being recorded, processed and passed on everywhere and all the time. Information technology is therefore a part of almost all aspects of modern life and will continue to play a crucial role in our mobility and in the consumer products we use - from production to use - in the future. Information technology not only provides the technologies needed for space stations, it also develops the solutions for the computer networks of the future. The IT sector is therefore experiencing extremely high rates of growth and provides outstanding career opportunities in the long term.

To help our students get started on their chosen career, we place great emphasis on giving them a solid grounding in mathematics, software engineering and computer science.

This broad-based training forms the basis for further specialisation in cyber-physical systems. Cyber-physical systems consist of mechanical components, software and modern information technology. Complex infrastructures can be controlled and monitored by linking the individual components via networks such as the Internet. Cyber-physical systems are based on sensors, actuators, networked software and cloud-based services. Sensors provide measurement data from the physical world and transmit them via networks to a service which processes them. This produces control data, which the software transmits to actuators via a communication network. Cyber-physical systems are characterised by a high degree of complexity and are used to realise smart grids, modern production plants or in medical engineering, for example.

The programme’s high level of practical relevance enables students to enhance the knowledge they have acquired. Project work is undertaken in small groups in well-equipped laboratories. A semester of practical study shows students how industrial projects are undertaken and managed in practice.

Continuing education after the bachelor

During your first teaching placement, you will gain an insight into teaching. Do you enjoy teaching in a college or a company context? Or would you rather work as a technical specialist? You can leave this decision until you have obtained your Bachelor’s degree, because this qualifies you for Master programmes in engineering and education theory. The Bachelor of Science in Engineering Education thus not only offers excellent prospects in modern engineering, but also varied career opportunities in further and advanced training.

Would you like to pass on your passion for engineering? Further information on training to teach at vocational colleges can be found at #LIEBERLEHRAMT.

Application and Admission

Pioneering and interesting

As an information technology expert, you are in demand as a specialist or manager. Digitisation is continually changing our working environment, and so companies are attaching greater and greater importance to advanced and further training processes. Trained engineering teachers are in great demand in this sector as well, because they have learnt to impart their knowledge in an appropriate and engaging way.

You can embark on a career as an IT specialist or equally well opt to do further training to become a teacher of academic subjects with higher grade civil servant status, whereby you will qualify to teach two subjects: systems and information technology (SIT) and energy and automation systems (ENAT).

Industrial specialisation

  • Embark on a career in industrial companies in various sectors
  • In the planning, development and programming of embedded systems and cyber-physical systems in a technical environment
  • In automotive and aeronautical engineering
  • In the consumer goods industry
  • In the automation industry
  • Continue your studies with a technical Master degree programme.

Teaching specialisation

  • Embark on a managerial career in occupational training and personnel management
  • You can also do your Master’s in Education Theory before starting your probationary teacher training for vocational colleges as a higher grade civil servant

Family-friendly working conditions as a teacher of academic subjects with higher grade civil servant status.

Multifaceted, always up-to-date and committed

Are you interested in a technical discipline? Can you see yourself passing on your enthusiasm to others, but are maybe not sure whether teaching is the right career for you? Postpone your decision until later!

We offer you the opportunity to embark on a career teaching academic subjects. You may also decide to pursue a career in industry using the training you receive in the fundamentals of engineering. You can seize this unique opportunity by deciding to take a multifaceted Bachelor in Engineering Education which is offered by five universities of applied sciences in Baden-Württemberg, including Esslingen.

You will not only enjoy excellent teaching, but will also receive individually tailored advice and benefit from the good student /teacher ratio which goes hand-in-hand with the informal study groups.

The contacts to local electrical engineering companies and collaborations with the University of Tübingen and Ludwigsburg University of Education guarantee you will receive high-quality, practice-based training in the theory of education in professional training.
