Bioanalysis B.Sc.

How is a genetic fingerprint created? How do scientists carry out a doping analysis? The program of Bioanalysis examines such questions. Students learn the common scientific and technical methods used in bioanalysis and are optimally prepared for a professional career.

The program provides a deep understanding of biology and physical-chemistry as well as methods of analysis. Students familiarize themselves comprehensively with different chemical-biological methods of analysis. They are able to examine biological samples such as blood, enzymes and hormones. But the analysis of heavy metals in ecosystems or doping analysis is part of the range of tasks. Thereby, they develop a high analytical competence.

Electrical Engineering and Information Technology B.Eng.

"Basically, anything goes, but without electricity nothing happens." Electrical engineering allows today's society to function. Energy technology and information transfer / information processing are no longer conceivable without electrical methods. In the Electrical Engineering and Information Technology program, students acquire sound skills in electrical engineering, electronics, information and communication technology, signal processing and hardware-near microcomputer technology (embedded systems). Thus, in their careers they are able to quickly come to terms with practical tasks in specialized electro-technical fields.

In their internship and in their industry-related bachelor's thesis, students establish early contacts with industry. The areas that graduates work in include research and development, production planning, quality assurance, and technical sales in various industries.

Power Engineering and Renewable Energies B.Eng.

Renewable energies will play an important role in the energy supply of the future. This provides major challenges for future engineers. In the program Power Engineering and Renewable Energies, Coburg University is developing engineers of the future. The specialized fields of storage and distribution of renewable energy are the focus of this area of engineering.

In the first three semesters the basics of electrical engineering and information technology are at the forefront. In the 4th semester an internship gives students the opportunity to learn about the technical professions in the field of renewable energies. In further semesters there is a concentration on various aspects of engineering and science. There are, for example, answers given to such questions as: How can a constant supply of energy be guaranteed with the fluctuation inherent in renewable energy sources? What requirements must the infrastructure meet? Key topics include storage technologies, intelligent energy management, special forms of electric power transmission, fluid mechanics, and thermodynamics.
