The Electrical Engineering Master at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) takes two years to complete. During these two years, you will follow core courses, a specialization track, have general professional development, take an internship, electives and participate in a graduation project.
Internship and graduation
You will have one internship in the second year, either abroad or in the Netherlands. You will end your Masters with a graduation project. The result tends to be a new product, a tool, a scientific journal publication, a presentation at an international conference or a patent.
Within the Electrical Engineering Master, 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.
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 the second year, you finish the mini-programs and take the last subject of general development, which is about the impact of technology on our society.
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.

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. Read more about IELTS.Take IELTS test
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. Read more about CAE.
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). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).
