WHY Electrical engineering AT THE UNIVERSITY OF TWENTE?

Do you want to develop new methods and technologies for high-tech, electronics-based systems? Or what about developing a group of small ground or aerial robots that can assist rescue workers searching for victims? Another option might be to develop new techniques for establishing robust radio links in Wireless Sensor Networks that operate in an extremely crowded radio spectrum. Or to contribute to the development of a ‘lab-on-a-chip’ that can be used to investigate the processes leading to Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s disease. 

If you take the Master’s programme in Electrical Engineering at the University of Twente you will enjoy a whole range of benefits:

  • Interesting specializations that tie in with your own personal interests;
  • A wide range of subjects – from Microsystems, Mechatronics, Telecom and IC Design/Computer Architecture to Biomedical Applications and Image & Signal Processing;
  • A strong emphasis on information systems and technology (electrical power and energy engineering are only addressed when we cover certain applications, mainly robotics & mechatronics).
  • Small classes and personal guidance;
  • Internationally oriented, English-taught, project-based education;
  • Close ties to world-renowned research institutes:

   MIRA Research Institute for Biomedical Technology and Technical Medicine; 

   MESA Research Institute for Nanotechnology;

   CTIT Research Institute for Telecommunication and Information Technology.
