Master's program Electrical Engineering 2019-2020

Electrical Engineering is about many things that are essential parts of people’s lives. It involves power generation, communication, healthcare and the environment, and electrical engineers solve a wide range of problems related to these topics. The department’s research focuses on smart, innovative electrical components and on the design of electrical systems, which may become very complex. We cooperate closely with the regional high-tech industry and with other partners all over the world.

The Electrical Engineering discipline is constantly changing. As a graduate of the Electrical Engineering Master's program you will find yourself equipped for researching, discovering and exploring new boundaries and for leading others along that way.

The purpose of the Master's program of Electrical Engineering is to teach students to work independently on complex research and design projects with the ability to rethink existing concepts and develop new ones. In the final phase of the program students will be able to present the results of their work to an international community. The curriculum of the Electrical Engineering Master's program comprises core courses, specialization courses, electives, professional development courses, an internship and finally a graduation project in which the student demonstrates his/her engineering ability to a high standard.

These pages describe the current Master's program of Electrical Engineering. The menu to the right also lists two related special Master's tracks Connected World Technologies and Care & Cure. Note that these special Master's tracks are in essence the Master’s program of Electrical Engineering with specializations focused on the Telecommunication and Health Care domain. Also listed is the SENSE program, a two year dual degree program aimed at developing the knowledge in Smart Grids. The first year is attended at KTH Stockholm in Sweden, as a combination of courses and practical assignments. The second year includes courses, an internship and a graduation project, and is attended at TU/e.
