This program offers a 2nd cycle of studies, which lasts two years to students with a Bachelor´s Degree. It comprises a wide range of specializations, such as: Communication Services and Networks, Multimedia Communication, Optical Communications, Microelectronics, Signal, Audio and Video Processing, Industrial Management, Industrial Informatics, Industrial Electronics and Instrumentation, Robotics, Energy Networks and Markets, Electrical Installations and Renewable Energies.
The Master Course in Electrical and Computer Engineering establishes the concept of integrated study cycle, awarding students with a Masters Degree. It complies with the guidelines of Lei de Bases do Ensino Superior (Portuguese laws which regulate the education system), combining the most relevant characteristics of FEUP´s most important courses in this area: Bachelor in Electrical and Computer Engineering and Masters in Electrical and Computer Engineering.
This Master Course comprises aspects of both of the above mentioned courses. From the first, it includes the aspects of a solid and broad scientific training in the fundamental areas of Electrical and Computer Engineering. It endows students with skills related to learning processes and underlying scientific knowledge. From the second, it includes the broaden knowledge that is given and the development of skills, which are mandatory at this level. It comprises various types of specializations, which are oriented to key areas in the development of the country and which are widely accepted in the market. It is oriented to areas in which the department expertises are acknowledged both in Portugal and abroad.
This Master Course is based on a common program and then it is divided into three different major areas:
* Telecommunications, Electronics and Computers
In addition to a common area that they all share, they comprise specialization areas, namely: Industrial Management, Industrial Informatics, Industrial Electronics and Instrumentation, Robotics, Energy Networks and Markets, Electrical Installations, Microelectronics, Signal, Audio and Video Processing. They are constituted by course units that are optional.
The study plan also comprises minors, which are coherently organised in different areas of specialisation. They lead to a complementary training, which will be mentioned in students´ diploma.
* Complementary Training Area (Minor)
* Automation, Control & Manufacturing Syst.
* Basics and Electrical Sciences
* Personal and Communicational Skills
* Electronics and Digital Systems
* Power Systems
* Electrical and Computers Engineering
* Other technical areas
