Electrical Engineering deals with applied electrical technology. It is a complex and dynamic discipline ranging from microelectronics through electromagnetism to high-power technology, from the development of tomorrow's information technology to automation and instrumentation of complex industrial processes. Electronic engineers have for decades revolutionized our ordinary day. The concept of "high tech" is largely based on innovations in the field of electrical engineering. Within the range of this discipline, you have the opportunity to learn to master a diverse range of skills.

  • Renewable energy
  • Stability and reliability in power systems
  • The operation, control, and economics in power systems
  • Power electronics and electric motor drives
  • Control theory

The Master's program will provide you a solid understanding of areas such as computer engineering, signal processing, control engineering, power electronics, microprocessor technology and programming, mechatronics and electric motor drives, and electromagnetism. You will also work on a practical, industry-related project, which provides additional opportunities for academic study. Both the projects and the final thesis is usually performed in cooperation with companies. This gives you the unique opportunity to get in contact with a possible future employer.
