What

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 Master of Science in 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 profound scientific basis.

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

Aandachtspunten

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

For whom

The admission requirements depend on previous degrees (type of degree, country of issue etc ...) or additonal experience.

Structure

The programme consists of a general module, main subject modules, elective courses and a dissertation. The general module contains courses on all subjects related to Electromechanical Engineering, ranging from electrical drives over machine manufacturing to management skills.

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

Through elective courses students broaden their knowledge and skills in technical and non-technical subjects. The Master Dissertation is a final step in the learning process. It aims at training the ability to independently perform scientific research.

Labour Market

Masters in Electromechanical Engineering graduating from one of the five main subjects are employed in all branches of industry. Both in government agencies and private companies their field of activity is broadly varied: electrical energy production and distribution, electrical and mechanical equipment manufacturing, metal industry, building construction, transport, consultancy, banking and insurance.

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