    The programme leading to the degree of Master of Science in Electrical Engineering is offered by the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science.

    The graduate programme of TU Delft offers Master of Science (MSc) and Doctoral (PhD) degrees in Engineering. The MSc programmes take 24 months and are taught in English. The programmes offer challenging highlevel education and research to talented students who hold a BSc degree in technology or science of substantial quality and level. The first year comprises theoretical study, assignments and laboratory work. The second year is largely devoted to the graduation project, which involves participating in one of the universitys advanced research or design projects or an equivalent assignment within a company.

    The Master of Science programme in Electrical Engineering is an advanced programme: students should have basic academic knowledge in the same discipline to be eligible for admission. Holders of a diploma of Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering or a related discipline may apply for admission at the Admissions Office of TU Delft. The degree of Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering of TU Delft gives entrance to the programme without selection, as do the corresponding degrees from TU Eindhoven, University Twente, Imperial College London, ETH Zürich and RWTH Aachen. In general, holders of a Dutch HTO-diploma in Electrical Engineering will follow the special HTO bridging programme of TU Delft before they can be admitted to the Masters programme.

    Information about admission can be obtained from the Student Councillors or from the Directors of Education in Electrical Engineering.

    MSc programmes

    Electrical Engineering offers three MSc programmes: Electrical Power Engineering , Microelectronics and Telecommunications and The Signals & Systems specialisation

    The programmes take 24 months and comprise 120 credit points. TU Delft uses the EC definition of credit points. Each programme includes a common core which is compulsory for all students in the programme.

    You will specialise in a specific field by selecting a number of courses from the list of specialisation courses, offered by the research groups participating in the selected programme and by other groups of EEMCS.

    The free elective space can be used for a minor or for units of study such as a internship, international exchange or courses from other programmes.
    You will conclude the programme with a thesis project resulting in an MSc thesis.

    The Electrical Power Engineering Track
    Electrical energy is the major energy carrier of the future. The operating environment of the power system is changing drastically due to new regulations and the liberalisation of the power market. The MSc- programme in Electrical Power Engineering brings the student up to date with the hot topics in Power Engineering: renewable energy, decentralisation of generation and the liberalisation of the energy market.

    Graduate studies in Electrical Power Engineering form an excellent basis for a successful international career in this field. The 2-year programme starts with compulsory courses in Power Electromagnetics, High Voltage Technology, Planning and Operation of Power Systems, and Electronic Power Conversion. Subsequently, the graduate student selects courses to specialise either in High Voltage Technology, in Power Electronics and Drives, or in Power Systems.

    Students specialising in High Voltage Technology will perform real-scale tests in our High Voltage Lab, the second largest lab in Europe. The lab does not only develop new diagnostic tools for monitoring transformers and turbo-generators in power plants, it is also involved in the 25 kV railroad electrification project of the Dutch railways. Students specialising in Power Electronics and Drives take part in the rapidly developing world of Power Electronics and Energy Conversion. Power electronics is the field concerned with influencing the flow of current in the high voltage network of utilities, and with designing of new solutions for the energy management in automobiles, ships and aeroplanes. And do not forget the sterilisation of food with pulsed electric fields. It is for these types of challenges that students of Electrical Power Engineering in Delft are trained.

    If you decide to specialise in Power Systems, you can join the Intelligent Power Systems Research Programme and perform advanced network studies on our Real Time Digital Simulator, the largest network simulator in the Netherlands. Here we develop the control and protection schemes for the electrical power system of the future.

    The Microelectronics Track
    The MSc programme in Microelectronics is supported by the Department of Microelectronics. It takes 24 months and is fully conducted in English. The programme offers challenging high-level education and research to talented students holding a BSc degree in technology or science. The first year comprises theoretical study, assignments, and laboratory work, whereas the second year is largely devoted to the graduation project. For the graduation project students participate in one of the university's advanced research or design projects or an equivalent assignment within a company.

    A graduation in Microelectronics constitutes an excellent basis for a successful international career in this field. Within the 2-year programme students follow a number of compulsory courses (core module) that cover the entire field of Microelectronics. Further, students select a number of specialisation courses to design a programme that matches their interest. The specialisation courses range from technology and devices, via integrated circuit design to high-level system design and cover many important present and future application areas. It also brings students in close contact with challenging and internationally recognised research areas that are covered by the Department of Microelectronics and Computer Engineering via its strong participation in the Delft Institute of Microsystems and Nanoelectronics (DIMES).

    The global character of the Department of Microelectronics and Computer Engineering is reflected by the international background of both the students and their professors. The department has its own clean rooms, so a student's idea does not have to remain only an idea, but can be realised. The available facilities also stimulate essential interaction between design-oriented and technology-oriented students. You are invited to take a virtual clean room tour.

    The scope of Microelectronics includes the design, fabrication and testing of devices, circuits and systems, using integrated (silicon) micro-fabrication technologies. Only trained people with state-of-the-art expertise can develop successful innovative products. This MSc programme aims at providing such knowledge, by offering a set of courses that enables a student to acquire both a broad knowledge of the field and more detailed knowledge in a specialisation area.

    The Signals & Systems Track
    Signals and systems play a major role in many of todays applications, like consumer electronics (portable audio player, mobile telephony, CD player, HDTV and DVB-H receivers), radar (aviation, remote sensing, GPS), control systems (automobile's cruise control, robots) and medical systems (X-ray/CT/ultrasound/MRI images, digital hearing aids).

    The programme track Signals and Systems covers the broad field of signal processing and system design and offers the possibility for graduation in a signal processing area, like multimedia signal processing, signal processing for communication and biomedical signal processing.

    The Telecommunications Track
    Telecommunication is an integral part of modern society. Within a very short period of time, a wide range of new facilities has become available - today it is easy to exchange information by wired and wireless media, for anyone and anything, any time, any place, and the associated distribution of services has followed in its footsteps.

    In addition, we have created a complex society with intensive economic activity, cultural diversity, ecological changes and risks and rewards, the management and government of which necessitate up-to-date information.

    In parallel to the telecommunications revolution, yet based on the same techniques, new observation technologies are being developed. Radar and remote sensing are used to collect up-to-date information required e.g. to prevent collisions between aircraft, forecast weather, and manage crop health.
