Electrical and Electronic Engineering, MSc

Electrical and Electronic Engineering, MSc

Programme Overview

The Master of Science in Electrical and Electronic Engineering is a 60 ECTS* credit postgraduate programme, designed to equip graduates and professionals for a career in the electricity sector. The programme offers deep knowledge of modern electrical engineering technologies, coupled with a strong focus in industrial design in power and energy applications. Graduates and professionals will acquire theoretically-grounded as well as practice-oriented skills that are relevant to the industry.

This programme is tailored to working professionals. Classes are conducted on weekday evenings.

*ECTS: European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System, a credit system designed to make it easier for students to move between different countries.

Programme Educational Objectives (PEO)
