Faculty 3: Electrical Engineering and Information Technology

Whenever you transmit information from one place to another, control processes automatically, or generate, convert and distribute energy, you're benefiting from electrical engineering. Today's innovative technologies let us light up our offices or turn on our computers simultaneously with one swipe of an access control card. Cell phones can be used to control and monitor window blinds, vending machines or entire factories from any place on Earth. And augmented reality allows people to interact with technology in entirely new ways by providing extra context-dependent information.

It is for these processes that the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Information Technology and Business Engineering develops solutions with controllers, microcontrollers or communication systems. It explores issues of electromagnetic compatibility, energy and power electronics, simulations and mathematical modeling. Research in the field ranges from optimizing low-voltage supply grids to transferring data in offices, homes or factories automatically and efficiently.

The Faculty combines its know-how with mechanical engineering concepts. For example, the Applied Modeling and Simulation Research Group uses simulation software to explore interactions between electronic and mechanical components in automotive engineering. Or to reconstruct modern automation solutions at the laboratory scale within an INTERBUS-controlled model factory.

When it comes to teaching, the Faculty has developed many useful techniques. TFH-System ONE, its microcontroller training system, was officially recommended by the Testing and Educational Materials Office (PAL) for training industrial computer technicians.

Today's engineers are expected to think and act like entrepreneurs. Many of the decisions they make in their careers inextricably link engineering problems with their financial consequences. To address this need, TH Georg Agricola has added a major in Business Engineering to its existing engineering programs. The major prepares students to handle the complex challenges of a management position.
