Jacobs University offers study programs according to the regulations of the European Higher Education Area. All study programs are structured along the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), which facilitates credit transfer between academic institutions. The three-year undergraduate program involves six semesters of study with a total of 180 ECTS credits. The curricular structure follows an innovative and student-centered modularization scheme – the 3C Model – which groups the disciplinary content of the three study years according to overarching themes:
YEAR 1 – CHOICE
The first study year is characterized by a broad offer in disciplinary and interdisciplinary education. Students select three CHOICE modules from a variety of study programs.
YEAR 2 – CORE
In the second year, students take three in-depth, discipline-specific CORE modules. One CORE module can also be taken from a second, complementary discipline, which allows students to incorporate a minor study track into their undergraduate education.
YEAR 3 – CAREER
In the fifth semester, the World Track provides students either with an extended internship or a study abroad opportunity at a partner university. Students may also opt to stay on campus and continue their undergraduate education, where they select specialization courses within their study program and pursue a project/research module including the Bachelor thesis.
The extensive developments in microelectronics over recent decades have triggered a digital revolution with computers as the driving force. 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, etc. The Electrical and Computer Engineering program focuses on the areas of communications,digital signal processing and control, including the enabling digital processing elements and their programming.
Careers in the aerospace industry, telecommunications, the automotive and energy sector and in the field of information technology; in academia, management and consultancy.

The Jacobs Track
The Jacobs Track is an essential element of Jacobs University’s educational concept. It fosters employability, transdisciplinarity, and internationality across all study programs. All students have to take modules offered within the Jacobs Track. The transdisciplinary triangle models offer courses from the areas business, technology, and societal context. Mathematics and statistics courses are offered within a methods module and foreign languages are provided within the language module.
