Study Programs in the department EIT
The use of renewable energy sources such as wind and sun, low-emission vehicles, modern communications technology, mobile communications, the Internet and many other things we take for granted today would not be possible without electrical engineering.
That's why the dual designation Electrical engineering and information technology is virtually program. Volts, watts, hertz, bits and bytes belong together and influence each other. Electrical engineering, information technology and microelectronics - these are the dynamic key technologies of today and tomorrow.
Nanotechnology is the production and use of structures that are smaller than 100 nm in at least one dimension. The field of nanoscience and nanotechnology has developed in the last 25 years in an extraordinarily dynamic and strongly interdisciplinary way. Nanotechnology is one of the key technologies of the 21st century. Its extensive application potential can only be exploited economically if the 'nano effects' discovered in basic research and the corresponding new properties of nanomaterials and nanostructures are translated into industrial products.
Medical Engineering deals with the development of devices, systems and technical processes for medicine. It combines the extensive engineering knowledge with the expertise of physicians and nursing professionals, e.g. in the areas of diagnostics, therapy and care.
The Faculty of Engineering at the University of Duisburg-Essen, together with the Faculty of Medicine, offers an interdisciplinary, consecutive study program on Medical Engineering
The Industrial Engineering program at the University of Duisburg-Essen is designed as a consecutive Bachelor's and Master's program. Economic subjects and engineering subjects are heard simultaneously in each semester. The aim of the program is to enable graduates to be employed in many technical and economic fields of work, but especially where technical and economic thinking is required simultaneously.
The structure of the ISE program is designed in line with the current education and labor market. Subjects of international relevance will be offered in disciplinary Bachelor and Master degree courses designed by the respective departments. Apart from these disciplinary degree courses, a wide range of interdisciplinary Bachelor and Master degree courses of special attractiveness is offered. The Bachelor/Master courses are continuously enhanced in order to cover a wider spectrum of engineering disciplines.
In April 2014, the University of Duisburg-Essen expanded its range of courses to include the "University Master Distance Learning Program in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology" (in short: Online Master EIT).
The structure and organization of the "University Master Distance Learning Program in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology" enables a flexible course of study, even alongside work and family planning.
