Practical training

  • Studying and practice - how does that work?
  • I have learned many things and want to try them out!
  • Own ideas - where and how can I contribute?
  • Am I even studying in a way that is practical enough for me to find a job later on?

We work closely with the very high-performing local industry and many research institutions. You have probably heard of Carl Zeiss Jena or Jenoptik. But smaller companies, such as Göpel-Electronic GmbH as a supplier for the automotive industry or Jena Optronik GmbH as a developer for space technology, also have a great need for electrical engineers.

  • About one-third of the courses are practical training in which what is learned must be applied.
  • There are many opportunities to participate in the various research projects carried out at the department. This allows for the application and deepening of what has been learned.
  • Approximately 90% of the final projects take place in companies.
  • The companies in our industry advisory board support us in designing the study programs and thus ensure that the training content corresponds to what is needed later as an electrical engineer.en somit sicher, dass die Ausbildungsinhalte dem entsprechen, was später bei der Arbeit als Elektroingenieur benötigt wird.
