Excellent career opportunities for Electrical Engineering graduates

Career perspectives (I124-1)

With an Electrical Engineering degree you are literally guaranteed a job. In south-west Germany there are many world-leading companies and hidden champions who are constantly on the look out for graduates.

A study by the Founders Association of German Industry shows that 110,000 graduates in the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and maths) are needed annually. At the moment only 90,000 are being trained, and it is estimated that by the year 2020 the lack of expertise will have risen to over 200,000.

Average starting salaries for electrical engineers are very competitive.
