Focus and disciplines

Electrical Engineering teaches you how modern technology can be used to further enhance, accelerate or scale down electronics-based systems. It will provide you with skills and expertise that you can apply in nearly all fields of technology. You will be challenged to improve high-tech systems with an emphasis on themes such as sustainability, health and safety.

Research and specialization

Our research focuses on many areas, ranging from microsystems, mechatronics and telecom, to integrated circuit design/architecture and biomedical applications. You can tailor a large part of the programme to suit your own personal interests (ranging from technical to managerial aspects).

Why opt for Electrical Engineering?

This top- rated programme provides you with a wider range of interesting specializations, small classes, personal guidance and gives you the opportunity to broaden your perspective internationally.

Career prospects

Electrical engineers are highly employable, largely because their training encompasses a branch of science rather than a specific profession. Without electrical engineers there would be no cars, aircraft, mobile phones, tablets, PCs or TVs. It is one of the best programmes you can take in terms of excellent job prospects.

specializations

Microsystems (focus: make it smaller)

Robotics & Mechatronics (focus: control over)

Telecom (focus: facilitating or improving mobile wireless communication)

IC Design/Computer Architecture (focus: hardware design)

Biomedical Applications (focus: electrical and electronic applications and devices to assis people)

Image and Signal Processing (focus: image processing and biometrics)
