Turn science fiction into reality with Electrical Engineering
What do you need to move a robot arm at high speed and with nano-level precision? How do you measure a nano G in order to monitor gravitational waves or the movements of buildings? How do you design a chip to work 10 times faster than the current ones, while using 10 times less power? How do you protect your computer from Wi-Fi code interception? If questions like these intrigue you, the three-year bachelor’s programme Electrical Engineering (EE) at the University of Twente is the right choice for you.
In this bachelor’s programme, you will be equipped to come up with high-tech solutions for practical problems. You will get to work on shaping tomorrow’s world.

Students who successfully complete the EE programme often share similar traits. If you’re worried that you will not fit in if you didn’t spend your childhood dismantling electronic appliances, rest assured: it might be an asset, but it isn’t necessary. The common denominator among EE students, of course, is a keen interest in electrical engineering and electronics. This interest can be very broad, ranging from anything that contains a chip or transistor to robotics, and from nanotechnology to signal processing. In this broad field, the most important thing is that you are good at mathematics – the language of engineers – and abstract thinking and that you never tire of learning.
