The Electrical Engineering Master’s programme is all about specialization: there are no core courses that have to be taken by all students. All specializations share the same structure. In your first year you will attend lectures in your specialized field and in your second year you will further develop the knowledge and skills you have acquired during your studies by applying them to practical work and problem-based learning. You will be given the chance to tackle problems that even the professionals have yet to solve. Your personal curriculum will be designed in consultation with your thesis supervisor.
