The Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology is concerned in engineering terms with the research, technical development and production engineering of electrically controlled devices or processes. In this regard, information technology constitutes the point of connection to computer science. Areas of research focus lie, for example, in medical technology, in which new and innovative diagnostic and therapeutic approaches for the medicine of the future are developed, and renewable energies, which provide international project opportunities. In teaching, alongside electrical engineering programmes, the Faculty also offers programmes in Mechatronics and Medical Technology as well as Systems Engineering and Technical Cybernetics.
The Faculty offers a broad range of modern and interdisciplinary programmes, some of which are offered in close cooperation with other faculties at Otto von Guericke University. Extensive integration with other disciplines enables the Faculty to face up to the challenges of a modern information society.
The Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology is home to the following institutes:
