Bachelor
(Bachelor of Engineering)

The much discussed shortage of specialised employees and the need to ensure a long term supply of young talents stimulated the bbw University of Applied Sciences and DB Engineering & Consulting GmbH to jointly develop a dual study programme in Electrical Engineering with a specialisation in control and safety engineering.

Current trends show that older specialists in this field will increasingly retire in future and there are few young engineers with specialised knowledge of control and safety engineering.

The study programme

The dual study course we offer consists of two different phases: basic electrical engineering studies and railway-related specialized studies.

The 4 semesters of basic studies are derived from the electrical engineering programme of the bbw University of Applied Sciences.
It comprises the fundamental engineering core subjects, complemented by basic modules of business and legal studies.

In the railway-specific specialised phase, students acquire the specific knowledge of "Catenary and Railway Power Supply" which they require to work in the field of planning and developing rail-bound transport systems.

Prospects following studies

This study course opens extensive career opportunities for our graduates.
The subject of Electrical Engineering covers a very wide field. Electrical engineers have correspondingly wide-ranging areas of operation. They have opportunities to launch a career in both production technology and communication technology. Other potential career fields include research, medical technology or energy economics.
Electrical engineers are basically responsible for configuring electronic systems according to requirements, installing and monitoring them. These systems may be production machines in a factory or the solar or wind power plants of private or commercial customers.

A railway-related specialization opens up additional professional perspectives. In this field, the tasks facing electrical engineers are chiefly concerned with distributing the electrical energy in the rail network and transforming it into driving power in the vehicle.

Other fields of opportunity beckon in communications and in Control and Safety systems. A major area of interest where electrical engineers are indispensable is Construction supervision. They are responsible for configuring, designing and testing new construction elements, vehicles and systems as well as planning and supervising them during the manufacturing process. Depending on their specialisation, they can find employment in the fields of efficient generation and distribution of electricity, processing and analysing measurement data, or quality assurance.
