Overall classification of the qualification

Not applicable
Explanation: An overall classification (mit Auszeichnung bestanden/pass with distinction, bestanden/pass, nicht bestanden/fail) – is awarded only for examinations that conclude a programme of study and consist of more than one subject (an examination of this type is not specified in the curriculum of this programme of study).

Studies Induction and Orientation Stage (STEOP)

(1) During the Studies Induction and Orientation Stage, the following course examinations, which may be repeated fourth, must be completed satisfactorily:

  1. Mathematics 1 (VO4, 5 ECTS-Credits, § 8 par. 1 no 1 lit a), ,
  2. Fundamentals in Electrical Engineering 1 (VO2, 3 ECTS-Credits, § 8 par. 1 no 4 lit a).

(2) Successful passing of all exams of the Studies Induction and Orientation Stage entitles to passing all further courses and examinations as well as to writing the Bachelor's Thesis.

(3) Before successful completion of the Studies Induction and Orientation Stage courses amounting to 22.0 ECTS-Credits may be passed. The requirements specified in the curriculum must be met.

General Information

Qualification Profile and Skills

The Bachelor’s Programme in Electrical Engineering is a joint study programme of the Private University for Health Sciences, Medical Informatics and Technology (UMIT) and the University of Innsbruck (LFU).

Electrical engineering has become indispensable in our digitised world. It covers research and development as well as production technology of systems, processes, devices and products that are at least partly based on electrical energy. The broad scope of application ranges from transducers to electrical machines and components as well as circuits for control, measurement, control, message and computer technology up to technical computer science.

Within the scope of the Bachelor’s Programme in Electrical Engineering, students acquire knowledge built on the latest findings of the discipline. Both scientific and engineering fields of expertise are developed and promoted through university education. In industrial projects and stays abroad social skills can be specially trained.

A central element of the Bachelor’s Programme in Electrical engineering is its focus on sustainability and relevance of knowledge and skills. That is why the imparting of knowledge and competences in scientific methods is given priority over often short-lived special knowledge.

Expected Learning Outcomes

The graduates are qualified to develop, evaluate and apply scientific advances in electrical engineering as well as to apply the acquired competences interdisciplinary. They have scientifically sound theory and method-based problem-solving skills, with the help of which they are able to handle demanding questions of professional practice.

Future Prospects: Occupational Profiles and Career Opportunities

Graduates of the Bachelor’s Programme in Electrical Engineering have a wide range of areas of responsibility and career opportunities. Because of their university education, they are in particular qualified to take up demanding work in different fields of electrical technology in industry and commercial businesses. Moreover, graduates of the Bachelor’s Programme are also qualified for a subject-specific Master’s programme.
