Overview of Bachelor’s Degree Programs

On this page you will find exciting information and personal reports from students as well as an overview of the Bachelor’s Degree Programs.


Students of the Bachelor’s program Business Administration and Engineering- Electrical Power Engineering

What would a study programme be without students?

We asked Viviana, a student in Bachelor Business Administration and Engineering – Electrical Power Engineering, to describe the course from her personal point of view.

Why did you decide to study Business Administration and Engineering: Electrical Power Engineering?

For me, the interdisciplinarity of the course was particularly attractive. In addition, I find the topic of energy system transformation very exciting. Electrical power engineering enables the combination of my scientific curiosity and my idealistic ideas.

Why did you decide to study this course at the RWTH Aachen University?

The RWTH immediately caught my eye because of its good reputation for the course. I also find Aachen’s geographical location very attractive, with fast train connections to Cologne, Amsterdam and even Paris.

What has been your greatest sense of accomplishment and your greatest challenge in your studies so far?

My biggest challenge was that I had deselected physics in the academic secondary school and therefore had to do some catching up in the beginning. However, this is also my greatest sense of achievement. It showed me how much you can teach yourself if you are interested in a certain topic.

Possibilities

Studies for Secondary School Teaching:

  • Electrical Engineering
  • Power Engineering
  • Communications Engineering
  • Computer Engineering

Technology Education Gymnasium and Gesamtschule Teacher

  • Technology

After the successful completion of the bachelor’s program you can follow up with the Master of Education (4 semester). After this degree you will have access to the preparatory service (formerly “Referendariat”).

Job prospects?
If you have studied engineering sciences “on a teaching profession”, you are not restricted to school. After graduation, you can also find interesting entry-level positions, for example in industry. Your particular strength is that you have trained in the teaching of complex technical contexts during your studies.

ETOS

The course of study is aimed at students who wish to gain a realistic insight into the electrical engineering course of study at both universities to be able to make their individual study decision for a type of university and possibly a later specialization.

The joint Bachelor’s degree course “Electrical Engineering with Orientation Semester” of the FH Aachen and RWTH Aachen University is an independent course of study consisting of a joint first semester at both universities and a subsequent partial course of study at one of the two universities.

The partial courses of studies correspond essentially to the courses of studies of the participating departments and faculties. The standard period of study comprises seven semesters (3.5 years) full-time, including the preparation of the Bachelor thesis.

Business Administration and Engineering – Electrical Power Engineering B. Sc.

Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen EN

Study Structure

This interdisciplinary course of study comprises:

  • Economics
  • Mathematics, Natural Sciences
  • Engineering Sciences

After acquiring a broad basic knowledge in these areas, from the 5th semester onwards you can
then choose from various technical subjects with a focus on electrical power engineering:

  • Power electronics – basics, topologies and analysis
  • Planning and operation of electricity supply systems
  • High- and medium-voltage switchgear and installations
  • Electricity supply components and systems

Career prospects?
Since the supply of affordable and sustainably produced energy is of global relevance,
industrial engineers have good chances on the job market – both nationally and internationally.

Students of the Bachelor’s program Electrical Engineering, Information Technology and Computer Engineering

What would a study programme be without students?

We asked Sarah, a student in Bachelor ET, IT, TI, to describe the course from her personal point of view.

 

Why did you decide to study Electrical Engineering, Information Technology and Computer Engineering?

 I have always had a great interest in natural sciences and when I was choosing my studies, I was particularly attracted to Electrical Engineering.

Why did you decide to study this course at the RWTH Aachen?

On the one hand, my grandparents have already studied in Aachen and Aachen is not so far away from home. And on the other hand I followed the good reputation of the RWTH.

Why did you choose the specialization in automation technology?

I have many interests and could therefore not yet commit myself to a deepening. That’s why I choose automation engineering as my master’s degree. In automation engineering you can stay broadly diversified and combine modules from other specialisations to suit your own interests.

What has been your greatest sense of accomplishment and your greatest challenge in your studies so far?

The greatest successes so far have been passing my last Bachelor exam and handing in my Bachelor thesis. Every semester, the exam phase was challenging, in which you want to stay mentally as healthy as possible to withstand the pressure, but you have to push yourself enough to pass the exams.
