Get support in choosing a master's

This specialisation belongs to the Master's in Electrical Engineering.

Power electronics is nowadays found in almost every system where electricity is used for computing, communication, renewable energy harvesting and transportation. It is an important technology for improving energy efficiency and reducing CO2 emissions. If you think of microcomputer as the brain in an electronic system then the power electronic converters are the muscles that control the flow of power between batteries, solar cells, the electric grid, electric machines and electromechanical actuators.

In the Power Electronics & Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) group we do research on the hardware and controls of energy conversion systems, often in the context of challenging applications. Our research focuses on three principal areas:
