Our faculty has been in existence since the foundation of the university in 1972. It includes the full range of research areas of electrical engineering from communications technology over electronics and automation engineering to energy engineering and has been expanded by the areas of information technology and print and media technologies in 2003.
The roots of our faculty and the university as a whole go back into the 19th century to the “Höhere und Niedere Gewerbeschule”, founded in 1863 in Barmen (Barmen nowadays is a district of Wuppertal). Thus it has existed even longer than RWTH Aachen University which developed from the “Königlich rheinisch-westfälische Polytechnische Schule zu Aachen”, founded in 1870.
