BSc in Electrical Engineering

Short description of the study programme

The BSc Program in Electrical Engineering is designed to give students a thorough understanding of the tools, methods, applications and practice of Electrical Engineering. It is both focused and practical in its orientation, with the goal to provide an education that is directly applicable to positions in industry. It is an integrated curriculum consisting of courses developed for the deeper theoretical understanding of the foundations of electrical engineering as well as for obtaining practical knowledge and skills required by  industrial applications.
The major specializations in Electrical Engineering are Infocommunication, Power Engineering, and Embedded and Controller Systems. Infocommunication is concerned with telecommunication and computer network based applications (voice, data, image, video, multimedia and composite social information systems).  Power Engineering covers a wide range of theoretical and practical knowledge including the design and safe operation of electrical energy transmission and distribution systems, the design and operation of electric machines, and operational principles and applications of low and high voltage switching devices. Embedded and Controller Systems focuses on computer based and application oriented systems which operate autonomously and have intensive information exchange with their physical-technological environment. 
Each specialization contains three courses focusing on the field of specialization followed by a laboratory course and a project laboratory. In these laboratories equipped with up-to-date devices, students gain hands-on experiences which prepares them for various industrial challenges.
