The degree requirement is 120 ECTS, or equivalent of 4 semesters of full time study, following a 180 ECTS undergraduate study. Full time study is consider to be 30 ECTS per semester. Courses are usually 6-8 ECTS. Students have a choice of completing either a 30 or a 60 ECTS MS thesis. All students must take an integrated project course (14 ECTS).
In addition to the field requirements, students are encouraged to select from a variety of elective courses based on their personal interest.
[[The program]] The graduate program in Electrical Engineering combines a solid theoretical foundation in physical science and mathematics, with engineering design and entrepreneurship. We emphasize that our students gain strong engineering and problem solving skills, and get to know all aspects of the engineering design process, from conception and development through operation and implementation. One of our key focus points is that the students develop strong team working skills.
We offer specializations in Electric Power and in Signals and Systems.
[[Electric Power]] Electric Power engineering is concerned with components of electric power systems, their operations, production and transport of electrical energy, and how to ensure steady delivery of electricity to meet consumer demand. Additionally, the field is concerned with the design requirements for electric power systems and subsystems, and their interactions.
We offer a variety of courses, designed for specialization in electric power systems, including Power System Operation, High Voltage Engineering, Power System Stability and Control, Power System Protection and Power Electronics.
[Integrated Project Our graduate students are required to take the course Integrated Project, an interdisciplinary design course, focused on the design and implementation of a complex engineering system. Examples on possible course projects include:
- Smart grids and the power transmission system. - Real time power system operation and power quality
[[Signals and Systems]] Signals and systems is concerned with automation, sensors, data acquisition and analysis, in addition to control. We emphasize dynamical systems, digital signal processing and application of computer engineering on practical engineering applications, including autonomous robots.
We offer a variety of topical courses, including Linear dynamical systems, Data Mining and Machine Learning, Computer Vision Applications, in addition to recommending various courses in from Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering.
Our graduate students are required to take the course Integrated Project, an interdisciplinary design course, focused on the design and implementation of a complex engineering system. Examples on previous course projects include:
- Autonomous Submarine - Robot monitoring the temperature of molten aluminum containers - Gönguróbot - Buoy broadcasting whale sounds - A single stage rocket, driven by solid fuel.
Admission requirement is an undergraduate study in electrical engineering or related disciplines.
