About

The Electrical Engineering programme is offered by the University of Twente (UT).

Electrical Engineering teaches you how modern technology can be used to further enhance, accelerate or scale down electronics-based systems. It will provide you with skills and expertise that you can apply in nearly all fields of technology. You will be challenged to improve high-tech systems with an emphasis on themes such as sustainability, health and safety.

Research and specialization

Our research focuses on many areas, ranging from microsystems, mechatronics and telecom, to integrated circuit design/architecture and biomedical applications. You can tailor a large part of the programme to suit your own personal interests (ranging from technical to managerial aspects).

Why opt for electrical engineering?

This English-taught programme provides you with a wider range of interesting specializations, small classes, personal guidance and gives you the opportunity to broaden your perspective internationally.

Career prospects

Electrical engineers are highly employable, largely because their training encompasses a branch of science rather than a specific profession. Without electrical engineers there would be no cars, aircraft, mobile phones, tablets, PCs or TVs. It is one of the best programmes you can take in terms of excellent job prospects.

Programme Structure

Specializations

Within the fields of Microsystems, Mechatronics, Telecom, IC Design/Computer Architecture, Biomedical Applications, Image and Signal Processing, you can opt for one of these specializations.

The first year

  • Standard specialization courses (20 credits): each specialization has four standard courses, see programme information.
  • Philosophy and non-technical courses: philosophy of engineering and a course in economics, finance or another non-technical subject (5-10 credits). Graduates in Electrical Engineering should be able to relate their professional activities to the wider needs of society. Your Master’s programme will therefore contain a number of non-technical courses.
  • Electives (including any catch-up courses and depending on your Master’s thesis and your own interests). See the list of electrical engineering courses for more information. You will select these courses in consultation with your supervisor (30-35 credits). The purpose of these courses is:
  • to acquire a knowledge of specializations adjacent to your own (two courses).
  • to acquire more in-depth knowledge of your own specialization.
  • to gain knowledge from outside your specialization according to your interests.
The second year

In the second year you will develop the knowledge and skills you have acquired in your studies to date by applying them to practical work and problem-based learning in a traineeship and a Master’s thesis.

  • Traineeship (20 credits): During this external placement, you will put the knowledge you acquired in your Master’s programme into practice by working at a company or institution. The traineeship is designed to resemble the working experience of a graduate employee as closely as possible. Many students complete their traineeship at a company, but it is also possible to do so at an institution or a university other than the University of Twente.
  • Master’s thesis project (40 credits): This is the final proof of your ability to handle more complex problems with a reasonable degree of independence within the area of electrical engineering, and to work as a scientific engineer at an advanced level.
