Electrical engineering is the indispensable prerequisite of modern society and for innovations in all branches of the economy. The majors in electrical energy technology, automation technology and electromobility correspond to the growing needs of industry in these very areas.
The aim of automation technology is to design machines and systems in such a way that they can be operated largely independently and without major human involvement.
Electrical energy technology deals with the classic and decentralized provision of electrical energy from alternative sources, use, conversion, storage and transport with intelligent energy management systems and electrical drives.
Electromobility serves future developments in the automotive industry and includes all aspects of e-mobility, from energy-saving mobile electric drives to energy storage and the required power electronic components.
In addition to the regular degree course, electrical engineering can also be studied at the WHZ in cooperation with companies. Possibilities are the study in the practice network of the Volkswagen educational institute, the study of electrical energy technology with practice partner (EEP). and the study automation technology with practice partner (AUP).
