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.
Career paths after graduation are very diverse. Jacobs ECE alumni work in the aerospace industry, telecommunications, the automotive and energy sector, and in the field of information technology, in academia, at research centers, in management, and in consultancy, even in finance. Having checked exemplary career paths of 75 former Jacobs ECE students, we found an enormous manifold of companies, research centers, and universities, where our alumni went or are currently working. It starts from well-known big companies, like Bosch, Continental, Deutsche Telekom, E.on, Ericsson, Google, Infineon, Intel, Nokia Bell Labs, Texas Instruments, Volkswagen, midsize ones, like Kapsch, Hirschmann, OHB, Rohde & Schwartz, to numerous small ones and start-ups like DSI, Snips, to consulting companies like McKinsey, Business Technology Consulting, Deloitte, financial institutions like PricewaterhouseCoopers, OpenLink Financial, even to companies like Fresenius and Proctor and Gamble, that would not come to mind immediately as typical workplaces for ECE graduates. Interestingly, also after intermediate further education steps or employments in other countries, a high percentage of alumni have found their long-term home in Germany and also Bremen.
Already during their studies the Jacobs University Career Services Center (CSC) as well as the Alumni Office, and, of course, faculty itself, help students in their career development. The CSC provides students with high-quality training and coaching in CV creation, cover letter formulation, interview preparation, effective presenting, business etiquette, and employer research as well as in many other aspects, thus helping students identify and follow up rewarding careers after their time at Jacobs University. Furthermore, the Alumni Office helps students establish a long-lasting and worldwide network which comes in handy when exploring job options in academia, industry, and elsewhere.
