With an MSc in Engineering - Electronics you will be a specialist in power electronics and embedded systems which are found in almost all electronic equipment today. You will learn to combine the two disciplines in practice and thereby play a central role in the development of the future's intelligent products. This Engineering - Electronics programme is offered by the University of Southern Denmark.

About

For example, hybrid and electric cars use power electronics and intelligent control to ensure reduced energy consumption.

Control and power electronics go into space crafts and satellites, among other things, to convert energy from solar panels, fuel cells and batteries. The electronic engineer's skills are also used in the development of products such as smartphones, censors, intelligent washing machines, drones, emergency power systems, frequency converters and robots.

Study Environment

This Engineering - Electronics programme is offered by the University of Southern Denmark. Lecturing typically takes place in small groups and throughout the programme you will also work on projects in small groups.

Career opportunities

With an MSc in Engineering - Electronics you can contribute to development and innovation within green technology, industrial production and transport systems.

Since power electronics and embedded systems play a central role in the future's products, services and energy development, this degree offers many career options in many different branches and types of company - in Denmark and abroad.

Examples of jobs you can do with an MSc in Engineering - Electronics:

  • project leader of development projects
  • research and development engineer
  • technical manager
  • consultant
  • entrepreneur

Typically you will find employment within branches which work with development of sustainable energy, energy conversion, transport systems, automation, robot technology and research.
