At the end of his graduate studies, the Electrical Engineer from ULg is able to make use of his/her knowledge and understanding of fundamentals of electricity, electronics and computer science to probe, analyse, process and transmit signals and energy. He/she has developed technical skills to design and create electronic systems that meet the development needs of individuals and society, while integrating potential economic constraints.
The training of Electrical Engineer at ULg allows him/her to identify and to analyse rigorously relevant components of a problem and to find an innovative solution through the implementation of a hardware and/or software electronic system. He/she is able to evaluate the limits of theories, approximations or assumptions. He/she knows how to conduct experiments and to interpretate results critically.
Through various projects and master thesis work, he/she has learned to work independently or in teams, and to present the results of his/her work clearly in French or in English. He/she is able to seek, evaluate, and use appropriately information from scientific or technical literature. His/her fundamental training and optional courses taken in the last year enable him/her to familiarize himself/herself with in-depth fields, ranging from microtechnologies to large electric power systems. He/she is able to interact efficiently with specialists from various disciplines, e.g. information technology, biomedical engineering or the energy sector. His/her optional internship in a company allows him/her to be aware of realities, constraints and needs of the industrial world.
