Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

The Electrical Engineering and Computer Science course combines elements of the other two CIT courses and is therefore often also referred to as an interface between electrical engineering and computer science. The course covers both hardware and system software and is therefore perfectly suited to those who have decided not to opt for a pure electrical engineering or computer science course and want to include other elements in their studies.

Career progression

Graduates in this field are also referred to as technical software engineers. They are responsible for designing and implementing electrical and mechanical engineering programming systems. They develop solutions to technical tasks, e.g. in robotics, microelectronics or simulation systems. Employment opportunities also exist in the telecommunications industry working on mobile phones and coding systems. Technical understanding paired with the knowledge required to design and implement optimized programming systems forms the basis of a technical software engineer’s work. Technical software engineers are also employed as technical specialists and patient lawyers. Demand has been high for several years and will continue to grow as a result of the broad application of this occupational area.
