You cannot imagine daily life without Electrical Engineering anymore. It solves several problems in energy supply, communications, health care and environment. It's no wonder that the faculty's research aims for these subjects. You will undertake innovative research and design, analyse, and realise smart and innovative electrical components and systems.
Besides this, you will cooperate with R&D departments in the industry. Electro Technology never stops and as a graduate you can enter a groundbreaking and managerial job.
Within the Electrical Engineering Master from Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), you can graduate at one of the faculty's nine capacity groups. Each of these capacity groups has its own specific knowledge when it comes to electro technical research. The research themes can all be categorised within the faculty's three themes.
Finding a job is no problem at all for our alumni. They start their career in research or product development at a high-tech corporation. Because the Electrical Engineering Master has English as its main language, our alumni have no problem finding a job at corporations or universities abroad. This master gives you a broad understanding of the field and teaches you a systematically way of thinking. Because of this, you will be able to operate within other fields as well.After your Master, you choose to take the two-year program SAI-ICT or to get your PhD at the Department of Electrical Engineering.
This program is legally recognized and accredited by the Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO).
In the first year you will take two mini-programs, a general professional development and some electives. The mini-programs are part of a cluster of subjects, of which one has to be technical. The second one can be aimed at management.During professional development you will learn to write a business plan and guide a group of first-year students in a project. Besides this, you will have a six-week internship to get to know the wide range of the Electrical Engineering area.
Electrical Engineering elective courses present state-of-the-art knowledge on topics currently researched by faculty staff, and allow you to acquire specialised information quickly, e.g. as a preparation for an internship or a graduation project. You’re not restricted to electrical engineering topics, however. You may also use your elective courses to study topics of your own interest, technical and non-technical, to broaden your view.
During your Electrical Engineering Master, you will have the opportunity to take one or two internships in the first year. These are internal internships, meaning they will take place at one of the nine capacity groups of the Electrical Engineering faculty.
You will learn how to contribute to an ongoing process within an existing group.
An internship is a small research project which prepares for the larger graduation project and which allows you to participate in the research carried out by the faculty. Our research is partly carried out in our own laborarotories, and partly at different companies and universities all over the world. Taking part in this research will bring you in contact with our research partners. If you are interested and we think you are qualified, you may also carry out the project at their facilities.
You will take a ten-week internship in the second year of the Master. You have the possibility to intern in a Dutch company. This way, you can prepare for your professional career.
You can also choose to do this internship abroad. You can even extend the duration in order to get more study points.
Internships abroad are a unique experience on both a technological and social level. It's no wonder a lot of students choose this. For example, you can intern at the University of Rio de Janeiro, or a company like Siemens in Munich. These internships have an orientating character, so you experience which main subject suits you.Our interns travel as far as Japan and Australia, but they also go to Singapore, Argentina the United States, or much closer to München and Leuven. Large regional companies as Philips, Océ and ASML frequently take up our interns, but there are also numerous smaller companies, such as Prodrive. And finally there are on-campus organisations as TNO and a large set of spin-off companies which regularly provide projects for our students.

You only need to take one of these language tests:
The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score.

The CAE test – or the Cambridge Advanced English – is an exam for applicants who wish to get a Certificate in Advanced English. To receive the Advanced certificate, test-takers must score between 142 and 210 on the Cambridge English: Advanced test.
Note: degree programmes and applications may require a more specific minimum score for admission.

The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing).

The general requirements for admission to a Master program of the department of Electrical Engineering are:
A Bachelor degree of our department of Electrical Engineering automatically admits to all Master programs of the department of Electrical Engineering.
You have direct access to the Electrical Engineering Master when you have an Electrical Engineering Bachelor. With a number of other Bachelors (for instance: Technical IT, Technical Physics or Technical Math), you can enter Electrical Engineering if you follow a program composed especially for you. Several Bachelors from the Delft University of Technology and University Twente give you direct access as well. Contact the department of Electrical Engineeringto see if you can enter the Master.
When you have a hbo-diploma in Electrical Engineering, you have access to a specific program of the Electrial Engineering Master. But other hbo-diplomas might be accepted too. Are you studying for an hbo-diploma? At certain schools, you can get a proof of admission for our Master. Contact the department of Electrical Engineering, so we can compose a program that fits you and your education.
