What Jacobs University says about their program:
"The extensive developments in microelectronics over recent decades have triggered a digital revolution where computers take center stage. While we still think of a computer as a desktop or a laptop, digital computing and digital signal processing have become vital for many of the products in our everyday life such as cars, mobile phones, tablets, cameras, household appliances, and more. The Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) program focuses on the areas of communications and digital signal processing, including the enabling digital processing elements and their programming. Those enabling technologies are mostly subsumed under the headline of embedded systems.
High demand for EE and ECE engineers with excellent job and career options in Germany and worldwide:
A recent survey by a German engineering association showed high demand for Electrical Engineering and Electrical and Computer Engineering engineers. Currently, inside Germany alone, there are twice as many positions than graduates, hence, ample job opportunities."
