The programme consists of two phases: the first three-year programme leads to a bachelor of science in engineering degree. The subsequent two-year programme awards a master in electrical engineering degree. Throughout the master’s programme, each student may choose to either deepen or broaden his or her scope by compiling a personalised programme based on a wide range of elective courses or by including a (broadening) Minor into the programme.
The Master of Science in Electrical Engineering focuses specifically on research and development, as well as on creation and design in the field of electronics, information and communication technology (ICT). Many companies only accept electrical engineers for the development of the smart systems they are producing and are therefore constantly looking for our highly trained students. Electrical engineers are mainly responsible for the design and development of data, image and speech processing systems, measurement and sensor technology, robot design, as well as the future ICT infrastructure, including wired, wireless, satellite and vehicular communication systems. Our graduates thrive in large multinational electronics, ICT and telecommunication companies, as well as a wide range of small and medium-sized enterprises active in the forefront of technology or consultancy. Their degree is highly appreciated for the broad scope of the programme and its strong bond to state-of-the-art research. The balanced mix between hardware and embedded software enables new graduates to play key roles in the development of hardware for smart devices, the future internet, and the internet-of-things and to have an impact on very important evolutions in society such as green electronics, smart health care and ambient assisted living.
