This English-taught programme focuses on developing and improving electronics-based systems. You will work on high-tech systems, such as a surgical robot arm, a satellite or car-to-car communication.

Electrical Engineering teaches you how modern technology works and how to use it to improve, accelerate or scale down electronics-based systems. Your work and commitment will result in high-tech applications that are based on nanotechnology, device physics, robotics, electronics and communication technology. The specific developments we work on include lab-on-a-chip technology, methods for producing faster and better computers, more energy-efficient cars and batteries, a chip-based pregnancy test and state-of-the-art communication sensors. You will be challenged to improve high-tech systems with an emphasis on themes such as sustainability, health, safety and energy. You will apply knowledge from the fields of computer science, physics and mathematics and learn about the full range of electronic components. The Electrical Engineering programme equips you with knowledge and skills that are essential in almost all areas of technology. All of the systems we use today rely on information processing, electronics and computers. As an electrical engineer, you will be highly employable and able to use your high-tech expertise to work towards a safer, healthier and more sustainable world.
