Why study at TH OWL?

Working in small groups allows for an intense support by our teaching staff. Instead of getting lost in a crowd - as an experience well-known at large universities - students can be supported individually. Owing to the fact that teaching and science have reached exceptionally high standards at our Department, the Bachelor’s degree program Electrical Engineering took first place in the CHE Ranking 2013. On a national scale, it was honored as the program with the best study conditions. During their study students have the opportunity to learn and research in excellently equipped laboratories. The research institute InIT and the industry-sponsored laboratories offer an attractive environment and manifold opportunities for project work and the Thesis. The Department’s strength in research and in networking with the regional industry offers graduates optimal conditions to start their careers. The program “Lehramt an Berufskollegs” (“Teaching at Vocational Colleges”) represents an additional study option at our Department.
