The Bachelor's in Electrical Engineering is a three-year programme. Each year consists of four modules of ten weeks, in which you will study a problem in a project team with other students. All subjects within the project are interrelated, and you will be challenged to look for practical solutions. 

  • YEAR 1You will encounter disciplines such as Mathematics, Physics, Information Technology, Electronics, Signals & Systems and Electromagnetism. Throughout the four modules you will gain an insight into the various professional roles and themes in your future field of interest, and learn how to develop practical solutions to complex problems.
  • YEAR 2Subjects include Computer Systems, Mechatronics, Network Systems, Device Physics, Signal Processing and Communications.
  • YEAR 3You will deepen your knowledge by taking electives. These involve technical and non-technical subjects and the chance to study abroad. The final step towards your Bachelor of Science degree is the completion of your Bachelor’s assignment.

Here are some examples of challenging tasks you might work on during your studies:

  • Developing sensors to find out more about certain parameters;
  • Developing smarter antennas;
  • Developing and designing a mechatronic system;
  • Making efficient use of solar cells;
  • Designing chips;
  • Understanding how to transmit radio waves and convert them into electricity;
  • Representing information as a signal to allow transmission, reception and processing.

The programme will develop your skills in research, design and management, enabling you to discover where your strengths lie. With a Bachelor of Science degree under your belt, you will be able to enter the job market or take a related Master’s programme.
