Third year


These are your options
  • Research: immerse yourself in a research project such as Lab-on-a-chip, Cyber Physical Systems or participate in one of our student teams.
  • Pre-Master’s: Do a pre-Master’s course to prepare for a Master’s programme other than Electrical Engineering.
  • Free electives: take subjects from e.g. our Bachelor’s programmes Applied Physics or Mechanical Engineering. Be sure to check that the organising programme facilitates this! 
  • Go abroad: spend half a year (two modules or one semester) studying at a university abroad.
  • Get your second-degree teaching qualification: do you want to teach after completing this programme? Use your minor to obtain your second degree teaching qualification. This allows you to work as a teacher at high-school level.
  • Join-in module: take a module from one of the other BSc programmes.

For a free minor, exchange or pre-master's: Fill in this form and come to the BSc Coordinator for approval.

MODULES 11: electronic system design

In this module you will apply the knowledge you acquired in previous modules as you engage in a major design project. Working on this assignment together with a large group of fellow students, you will break the problem down into sub-functions and sub-problems. Naturally, you will have to discuss the preconditions with each other, so that all of the different partial solutions can be merged into a single, total design at the end.  In this module we will also consider the non-technical conditions related to your design, such as user-friendliness and social or ethical aspects.

MODULE 12: bachelor thesis EE

You carry out your final Bachelor's assignment under the supervision of one of the chairs within the departments of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science: microsystems, semiconductor physics, robotics, telecom, Artificial Intelligence, integrated circuit design/architecture, nano-electronics or biomedical applications. You can gear your choice of topic towards preparing for a Master’s specialization or programme. You work together with researchers from the chosen field as you research and develop technical applications – for example, a new connection, a new sensor/sensor system, or a control system for a surgical robot.

You are to conclude your third year by writing a thesis, which you will have to defend in front of a research committee.  If you pass this test, the Bachelor of Science degree will be yours.
