Master's Programme in Electrical Engineering, 120 credits, 120 hp

Electronic systems can be found in home and consumer products, medical instruments, in vehicles, within industry, army and aviation, and even in space. The Master’s programme has a strong focus on embedded systems and sensor systems, and teaches you how to design such systems and how to connect them to different products and programmes. The Master’s Programme in Electrical Engineering was developed in cooperation with the industry and researchers and therefore, it responds to current and future market needs.

About the programme

This programme will provide you with a broad knowledge of the different technologies that form the basis of embedded sensor systems. You will also gain understanding of the methods and tools you need for analysis and construction, both on an overall level and in-depth. In addition, you will learn to put your theoretical knowledge to practical use by means of close cooperation with the researchers and industry.

During your studies you will learn everything from the construction and programming of embedded systems to the connection to other features. The programme covers all the important parts of the process, such as data collection, processing, communication and energy supply considering the underlying technologies; design method, optimization, energy/power efficiency and measurement system.

In the second year of your studies, you have the opportunity to choose a profile for in-depth studies. The profile courses are carried out in close collaboration with research groups at the STC research center and therefore provide you with state-of-the-art knowledge.

As a student in this programme, you will work in projects, both individually and in groups, to gain advanced knowledge in different areas. The programme is taught in English, which will increase your opportunities on the global job market.

Entry requirements

English course 6 from Swedish Upper Secondary School (Gymnasium) or the equivalent.

Title of qualification

Masterexamen

Masterexamen med huvudområdet elektroteknik, translated into Degree of Master of Science (120 credits) with a major in Electrical Engineering or Teknologie masterexamen med huvudområdet elektroteknik, also translated into Degree of Master of Science (120 credits) with a major in Electrical Engineering, if the student has former studies of at least 30 credits in the subject of Mathematics.

After the programme

After completing this Master's degree you have several alternative career paths to choose from. You can for example work as an employee in the industry, as a consultant, or in research. You can also continue your studies with a PhD education. Your qualifications will be sought after both in Sweden and on an international job market.

Work experience contact

Engineering is an applied science with practical application of theoretical knowledge. We therefore consider it important for education to be closely linked to practical applications and industry needs. The programme is developed together with the industry based on their needs and current technological development. This is why many of the project assignments have their starting point in problems identified by the companies or research institutes we are collaborating with.
