Check the Master Electrical Engineering Checklist to determine what has to be done before the start and during the first quarter of the first year.

Safety training

An Occupational Health, Safety & Environment training takes place during the first lecture week in the first quarter. During this training you gain practical information about the buildings, learn how to avoid hazards and risks, learn how to act in case of emergency, and learn how to prevent physical complaints caused by computer work. It's important to attend, not only for your own safety during your studies at EE, but also for the safety of your fellow students and EE staff. Therefore, the training is compulsory for all new students and counts as a practical exercise within your Master's program. You will receive an invitation from your academic advisor with a time slot. If you do not attend you are not able to complete your program: your presence will be registered. You can find the PowerPoint presentation shown during the training of September 2019 here.
