Electrical engineering offers a wide range of application fields. The earlier common profession of electricians does not exist anymore. The technician is now trained in the fields of energy and building technology, information and communication technology and automation technology.

Electrical engineers for energy and building deal with the installation, maintenance and repair of power systems and electrical systems in buildings (for example, lighting and communications equipment, solar systems and lightning protection systems). They are mainly employed in establishments of electrical engineer crafts and facility service companies.

Electrical engineers in information and communication technology take care of data processing and data transmission equipment. This can for example be Alarm systems, access control systems, telephone systems and surveillance systems.

Electrical engineers that specialize in automation technology take care of automation equipment and automation systems, for example, manufacturing systems, traffic control systems and building services (e.g. heating and ventilation systems). Electronics of this field work with producers and users of automation systems, e.g. automotive, plant and machinery.

The field of activities for bachelor and master graduates of electrical engineering and information technology range from research and development in the laboratories of industry, universities, and major research institutions in the area of data processing, software, organization, planning and implementation to production and manufacturing, sales and marketing also in areas outside the electrical industry.

Job opportunities are available in the large-scale industry, in the small and medium industry, as well as in the self-employed and the public sector.
