Job Profiles

Our bachelor’s degree program prepares you for excellent career prospects in industry and science: electrical engineering is a key field shaping technical progress. Wind turbines, autonomous machines or microchips – electrical engineering covers all areas where electrical, information technology and mechatronic systems and plants are used. 

Work areas handled by engineers include, for example:

  • Reducing energy consumption
  • Software development
  • Improving reception quality in mobile wireless networks
  • Developing, commissioning and maintaining electronics and industrial systems and machines
Cooperation With Companies

We cooperate with a large number of regional and national companies in fields such as 

  • engineering
  • automation technology 
  • drive technology 

Research and development projects, including through the it's OWL cluster, integrate current knowledge from professional practice directly into our coursework. You can also complete our degree program as a dual degree program.

Research in the Department

Our department carries out a wide range of application-oriented and fundamental research projects. We participate in national and international research programs.

As a student, you can participate in a variety of ways: we integrate research content into coursework, integrate you as a student into the active work of research groups early on, and deal with some research content in the framework of theses.

Studying at Innovation Campus Lemgo

Our Innovation Campus in Lemgo

At the Innovation Campus in Lemgo, you will study at one of the most exciting technology locations in NRW. Here you will find state-of-the-art laboratories and teaching rooms as well as science-to-business factories. For example, the Centrum Industrial IT, in which companies from all over East Westphalia-Lippe (OWL) have their branches. Or the Smart Factory OWL, which showcases data and AI management. In the Future Food Factory OWL, which is unique in Europe, something similar is happening in relation to food production. New work and transfer meet at InnovationSPIN. Here, TH OWL, the district administration and the skilled trades demonstrate transparent cooperation and a spirit that allows new things to emerge. In addition to Fraunhofer IOSB-INA, the campus is also home to two vocational schools and the national handball league team TBV Lemgo-Lippe. And best of all, the campus also has student residence halls with short distances to the university and the city.
