Research-oriented Electrical Engineering
Nano-electronics, information technology and the energy supply of the future have an impact on all areas of our lives. Microelectronics represents a key technology in many areas such as communication electronics, automotive engineering, the production of renewable energy, and environmental protection. Changes in society are closely connected with current developments in communication and information technology, such as Internet, multimedia and 3G Wireless. In the field of electrical energy technology, the main challenges of the future include; the integration of renewable energy into the power grid, increasing energy efficiency on the consumer side and the construction of SMART Grids, i.e.; the further implementation of digital measurement, protection and electronic control devices including digital counters which will later directly control home appliances. The proportion of power electronic components in the power supply networks, but especially in drive technology, will continue to grow.
