Der Studiengang


The Internationally Oriented Studies programs at the FH Aachen, Jülich Campus, specialize in teaching students technical abilities and skills as well as soft skills. All modules emphasize that

  • professional expertise means more than theoretical knowledge: application of professional knowledge is crucial
  • priorities include technical and professional expertise based on mathematics, natural sciences and technical skills
  • soft skills, including social competence and the ability to work in a team, are equally necessary for the students’ future employment.

You get the tools to become an Engineer in the first four semesters: You learn all mathematical and physical as well as academical basics of Electrical Engineering. In the fourth semester you get the specific basics.

In the fifth semester you decide in which area of specialization you want to become an expert. You can decide between different areas of specialization: automation and control engineering, electrical drives and power electronics, power plant technology, energy distribution and grid management and high-voltage engineering

The first half of the sixth semester is devoted to a practical subject. The Bachelor thesis are the completation of your studies. Afterwards you start your working life or continue with a master course.
