Electrical Engineering Project LaboratoryProject-/problem-based Learning8Summer Semester

Module Responsibility:

Prof. Christian Becker

Admission Requirements:


Recommended Previous Knowledge:

Electrical Engineering I, Electrical Engineering II

Educational Objectives:

Professional Competence

Theoretical Knowledge

Students are able to give a summary of the technical details of projects in the area of electrical engineering and illustrate respective relationships. They are capable of describing and communicating relevant problems and questions using appropriate technical language. They can explain the typical process of solving practical problems and present related results.


The students can transfer their fundamental knowledge on electrical engineering to the process of solving practical problems. They identify and overcome typical problems during the realization of projects in the context of electrical engineering. Students are able to develop, compare, and choose conceptual solutions for non-standardized problems.

Personal Competence

Social Competence

Students are able to cooperate in small, mixed-subject groups in order to independently derive solutions to given problems in the context of electrical engineering. They are able to effectively present and explain their results alone or in groups in front of a qualified audience. Students have the ability to develop alternative approaches to an electrical engineering problem independently or in groups and discuss advantages as well as drawbacks.


Students are capable of independently solving electrical engineering problems using provided literature. They are able to fill gaps in as well as extent their knowledge using the literature and other sources provided by the supervisor. Furthermore, they can meaningfully extend given problems and pragmatically solve them by means of corresponding solutions and concepts.

Course: Electrical Engineering Project Laboratory (Project-/problem-based Learning)




Summer Semester


Topics and projects cover the entire field of applications of electrical engineering. Typically, the students will prototype functional units and self-contained systems, such as radar devices, networks of sensors, amateur radio transceiver, power electronics based inverters, discrete computers, or atomic force microscopes. Different projects are devised on a yearly basis.


Alle zur Durchführung der Projekte sinnvollen Quellen (Skripte, Fachbücher, Manuals, Datenblätter, Internetseiten). / All sources that are useful for completion of the projects (lecture notes, textbooks, manuals, data sheets, internet pages).
