Description of course of studies

Electrical engineering and information technology are among the most important areas of business life today. Numerous German firms research, produce and sell electrical engineering and information technology systems, and their achievements in the field enjoy an international reputation. For this reason, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology graduates go on to work at home and abroad in positions in the industrial sector (research, development, production, project design and sales), at public authorities and state-owned companies, and at railway and postal organizations, radio and television stations, independent research and technical institutes, universities, and other establishments of higher education. They also find employment as consulting engineers, and with additional training, as patent engineers.

Application and admission



Application period for winter semester:15.05. - 15.07.
Application period for summer semester: 15.11. - 15.01.
An application for the summer semester is only possible for higher upper-division semesters.

Our online application portal TUMonline will create a checklist with documents you have to hand in.
You must submit the signed application form and – if possible – all documents before the application deadline i.e. before 15.07. for winter semester and before 15.01. for summer semester. If individual documents are not available at that date, you can hand them in up to five weeks after the start of the lecture period. However, we recommend that you submit all required documents well before the semester begins, as you will not be enrolled until all documents have been received.

Please check your TUMonline account regularly to see if we have any questions concerning your documents or if you have to amend one or more documents.
