Modules 9 and 10: electives
Widen your horizons by taking a subject from another discipline (in technology, philosophy or the humanities) or study a particular aspect of Electrical Engineering in greater depth: the choice is yours. Whatever you decide, you can use these two modules to study abroad for half a year. These 20 weeks also give you the opportunity to study subjects you might need to gain admission to a particular Master’s programme.
Modules 11: 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: final Bachelor's assignment
You will carry out your final Bachelor's assignment under the supervision of one of the chairs within the department of Electrical Engineering: microsystems, mechatronics, telecom, integrated circuit design/architecture or biomedical applications. You can gear your choice of topic towards preparing for a Master’s programme. You will work with researchers in their field of study with a view to examining and developing engineering applications (e.g. a new connection, a new sensor/sensor system or a control system for a surgical robot).
You will conclude your third year by writing a thesis, which you will have to defend before a research committee. If you pass this test, the Bachelor of Science degree will be yours.
