Master Electrical Engineering

Join the Online Open Day on 12 November to find the perfect master's!

Would you like to expand your knowledge of design, analysis and research with regard to innovative electrical engineering systems? Do you see designing, developing and producing electrical and electronic systems and processes as an exciting challenge? If so, this two-year Master's in Electrical Engineering is definitely one to consider. This is an internationally oriented programme and is taught entirely in English. You can start in September and February. You can start the pre-master's in September.

We also offer a Bachelor's (BSc.) in Electrical Engineering.

Read more about the master's, pre-master's and admission. You can also find more information about career perspectives. Read the testimonial of students from Electrical Engineering.

This master's challenges you to develop new methods and technologies for high-tech electronics-based systems in nanotechnology, robotics, electronics, power electronics, radio or biomedical systems and make the next step to our all future.

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 specialisation

Our research focuses on many areas, ranging from nanoelectronics, robotics and mechatronics, 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).

At the University of Twente we offer the following focus areas and specialisations in Electrical Engineering:

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)

Why opt for electrical engineering?

This programme provides you with a wider range of interesting specialisations, 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.
