Global Impact of Electrical Engineering

A continuously running course

in the EE bachelor program

During their studies, electrical engineering students typically learn specialized skills in the various subfields of electrical engineering. However, due to the relevance of the rapid technological advancements of electrical engineering, there is also a need to holistically understand the development of electrical engineering as a field as well as its current and future role in society. This 3-years core course consists of various lectures, talks and reflection seminars which help the students to become aware of this global impact of electric engineering and its interaction with societies.
