Projects of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology

Energy efficiency, facility management, intelligent networks and robotics – these are all fields the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology conducts research in. As early as the 1980s concepts of computer-integrated manufacturing were developed which can now be realised using state-of-the-art technology such as robots and intelligent sensors. The advance of Industry 4.0 and its technical innovations also raised the bar for requirements of flexibility and automation in manufacturing and of data protection. This is another field where our electrical engineers make a decisive contribution. The Bachelor programmes Electrical Engineering, Information Technology and Digitalisation and the Master programme Electrical Engineering and Information Technology provide the perfect preparation for our students to master the challenges of this field and to become true experts.

Monitoring water conditions No fish out of water: monitoring systems for the local zoo

Experts of THGA have been developing up-to-date monitoring systems which can be used by zoos, for example, to check if the water quality of fish tanks is correct. If harmful limit values are reached, an automatic alarm is sent out to the people responsible. This helps to make sure that neither the fish nor the zoo are out of water.

Measuring bad atmospheres A CO2 traffic light

A Master student at THGA has developed a CO2 traffic light system that allows for very precise measurements of CO2 levels in air. This system has been installed in one of the lecture theatres of the department. What is so special about it? It uses the mobile network Sigfox to transmit the data generated directly to the internet which allows users all over the world to access the values measured.

Illuminating the future Flux.Mi - a sculpture of light

Flux.Mi reflects a human body and turns it into light. To make this work, 6,500 LEDs and 2,160 PCBs are needed - and a huge amount of creativity and innovation. Dennis Lyskawka has plenty of that and made use of his skills to implement this project for his Master thesis at THGA.
