Dear alarm system engineers, electrical engineers, technical managers, electronics specialists and colleagues, Berlin’s electrical engineering sector has a wide range of professions. These are primarily concerned with the development, production and management of electronic devices and systems. The main sub-sectors are:
- Development and production of installation devices and systems
- Power supply
Since the beginning of the 20th century, Berlin has been known as “Electropolis” – city of electricity. More than 28,000 colleagues already work in the electrical/electronics industry, making it one of the capital’s industrial sectors with the largest workforce.
As well as several large firms, Berlin-Brandenburg is also home to medium-sized industrial companies, in particular, including many global market leaders. AEMtec, Bogen Electronic, First Sensor, imc Meßsysteme, MTS Systems, LayTec and PCS Power Converter Solutions are just some of the companies offering employment. The sector is dominated by environmental and energy technologies. For example, power converters and electrical equipment for wind farms, solar power plants and industrial applications are built in the capital region, while optical components, modules and subsystems for telecommunication applications are also developed, produced and marketed.
