Internet of Things, fast and secure communication, robotics, autonomous driving, electromobility, energy supply, health and much more - fast change and permanent innovation are the engines of progress and nothing works without electrical and computer engineering. In terms of sales and employees, electrical and computer engineering is one of the largest industrial sectors worldwide. High-performance electrical and electronic equipment and systems as well as corresponding efficient algorithms and networked data processing form the basis for the great future topics of our society: digitization, Industry 4.0, cyber security, energy supply and mobility of the future, aging society, etc.
Electrical and computer engineering always requires the interdisciplinary approach and the interaction of modeling, implementation and data processing, whether it is the investigation of individual effects or automated design and the creation of complex technical systems. An essential feature of the tasks in electrical and computer engineering is the scalability of solutions and systems, as well as in highly integrated circuits and in other complex, networked infrastructures. The necessary range of methods in electrical and computer engineering and its further development, itself a subject of engineering science, is thus characterized highly interdisciplinary and includes numerous fields of applied mathematics, computer science and physics.
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Technical University of Munich - one of the largest and leading engineering departments in Germany - is committed to this self-understanding and is characterized by a close linkage of a strongly basic as well as application-oriented teaching and research.
