After graduation


The world of electromechanical engineering encompasses development, design, manufacturing, testing and control of tools, machines, vehicles and other electrical or mechanical systems, as well as research on these topics. The Electromechanical Engineering is a two-year degree programme intended to prepare students for a future technical leadership role in industry. The programme offers in-depth training in all aspects of electromechanical engineering and its economic and social implications based on a solide scientific basis.

Graduates will have acquired an attitude of scientific synthesis, analytical reasoning as well as scientific and technical independence. Training in research skills provides mastery in developing, implementing and monitoring technical and scientific innovations.


The Faculty of Engineering and Architecture (FEA) offers most of its Engineering programmes at Master’s level in English. This underlines the international ambition of the faculty, as well as the importance of an international education and multiple language skills for students.

For whom

The admission requirements vary. Depending on your prior education, you are either able to enrol directly, or there are additional requirements.


The programme consists of a general module, main subject modules, electives and a dissertation. The general module contains course units on all topics related to Electromechanical Engineering, ranging from electrical drives and machine manufacturing, to management skills.

Students can choose one of five main subject modules with specialist course units on different topics of interest. The Control Engineering and Automation main subject is about control and automation applied to mechanical and electrical systems and processes in general.

Through elective course units students broaden their knowledge and skills on technical and non-technical topics. The Master’s dissertation is a final step in the learning process. It aims at fostering the ability to conduct scientific research independently.

Labour Market

Electromechanical Engineering graduates from all five main subjects are employed in all branches of industry. Both at government agencies and private companies their range of professional activity is broad and varied: electrical energy production and distribution, electrical and mechanical equipment manufacturing, metal industry, building construction, transport, consultancy, banking and insurance.

Control Engineering and Automation graduates are employed in development and design of equipment and systems for automation, control and supervision in process industry, energy production, electrical and mechanical equipment manufacturing and all other industrial sectors.
