Shape the future of electronics by developing novel electronic devices and systems, from circuits to sustainable energy technologies.

Electrical engineering is the foundation of technological progress in many fields, such as healthcare, manufacturing, transportation, aerospace, and the automotive industry. Do you want to push the boundaries of what is possible in electrical engineering? Think of innovating chip architecture, researching alternative components to replace transistors in current electronic devices, and making 3D printed sensors. What about improving medical imaging technologies, such as MRI and X-rays, along with developing implantable and wearable medical devices? Electrical engineering also plays a pivotal role in the ongoing energy transition, offering you immense opportunities to contribute to our future. You can enhance solar cell efficiency, facilitate sustainable chip manufacturing processes, and optimise power grids for compatibility with renewable sources like solar and wind energy. If you want to engage in impactful research and innovative technologies that will shape the future of electronics, the Master’s in Electrical Engineering at the University of Twente is the right choice for you!

In this two-year, English-taught Master’s, you will research, design, analyse, develop, and optimise electrical components and systems for a wide range of applications, such as smartphones, computers, medical devices, power grids, vehicles, or manufacturing processes. This Master’s places a strong emphasis on signal processing and analysis as well as on the design and development of electrical components and systems. You will have the opportunity to contribute to the advancement of technologies like solar cells, AI assisted pattern recognition, and smart sensors.
