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:
BIOMEDICAL APPLICATIONS (FOCUS: ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONIC APPLICATIONS AND DEVICES TO ASSIS PEOPLE)
communication (focus: make it faster)
ENERGY SYSTEMS (FOCUS: MAKE IT MORE EFFICIENT)
IC Design/Computer Architecture (focus: hardware design)
Image and Signal Processing (focus: image processing and biometrics)
MICROSYSTEMS (FOCUS: MAKE IT SMALLER)
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.
Below you find a list of educational programmes which are (closely) related to Electrical Engineering.
Engineering & Technology
As an applied mathematician, you occupy a key position in the scientific world. Through mathematical models, you grasp the essence of a problem and see links between seemingly unrelated phenomena.
Apply yourself to one of the oldest fields of science: physics. Gain fundamental insights into your own research field while sharpening your research skills.
Contribute to better healthcare by designing and developing medical innovations for improved diagnostics, treatment, rehabilitation, prevention and a better quality of life.
Business Information Technology
Become an expert in IT-based business innovation, able to devise new services and radically improve the way businesses work with the use of IT.
Chemical Science & Engineering
This Master’s will help you to develop novel chemical processes, materials and molecules and contribute to innovations that benefit our society in areas such as health, water, food and sustainability.
Civil Engineering & Management
If you are eager to focus on both the technical and non-technical aspects of civil engineering projects and systems, then the Master’s in Civil Engineering & Management is the programme for you.
Computer Science is omnipresent in modern society. Latest hardware and software developments are crucial in domains such as social media, security, health, energy, ICT systems, finance and telecom.
Construction Management & Engineering
This Master’s helps you to become an expert in managing large-scale, complex construction projects in an increasingly digitised industry, using an innovative, holistic approach.
This Master’s focuses on the design of embedded systems: the hardware and software that control a device, process or system, e.g. smartphones, pacemakers, chip sets or navigation systems.
Industrial Design Engineering
Combine design and engineering in creating innovative products that enrich people’s lives. During this two-year Master’s, you learn to optimise both products and the development processes involved.
Industrial Engineering & Management
Become a creative, multidisciplinary manager with both technological know-how and engineering and management skills and optimise processes and solve problems in complex, globally active organisations.
Delve into the field of human-computer interaction and design and develop interactive technologies that are meaningful to people and society.
Become an expert mechanical engineer that focuses on the futureproof design, analysis and maintenance of machinery, structures, products and production processes.
Tackle big, societal issues at the smallest level: become an expert in the upcoming field of nanotechnology and invent, design, and develop innovative solutions on the extremely small nanoscale.
Philosophy of Science, Technology & Society
Philosophy of Science, Technology and Society is the premier Master's programme for learning how to critically analyse and assess the impact of scientific and technological developments on society.
Learn to develop robotic solutions to benefit industries and societal domains. You will cover all disciplines as mechatronics and AI, while adressing ethical, legal, societal, and economic aspects.
Natural disasters, poverty, food shortage, epidemics, climate change: learn to tackle society’s greatest and most complex challenges with the use of spatial data.
Sustainable Energy Technology
Do you feel called upon to make a valuable contribution to the sustainable energy transition? Become an expert in the development, implementation and integration of sustainable energy technologies.
Systems & Control
This two-year master’s programme teaches you how to control the behaviour of dynamic phenomena and systems in interaction with their environment.
This Master’s will equip you to become a technical doctor who can use medical technologies to their full potential.
