Out of the 120 credits to earn during the 4 semesters, 108 credits are dedicated to electrical engineering and the underlying knowledge. On one hand, this is provided through lecture courses for the apprehension of the theoretical background. On the other hand, there are several practical and laboratory courses for acquiring the necessary proficiency and skills. In addition to these compulsory subjects, 6 credits are to be obtained from elective subjects related to the field, and another 6 credits from electives in human and economic sciences.The program mainly comprises foundation and core subjects (22 credits), specialization subjects supplemented by project work and laboratory work (56 credits), and thesis design work (30 credits).
