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. The programme is delivered by Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e).


The Master

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.

  • Care and Cure
  • The Connected World
  • Smart and Sustainable Society
Graduated. And then?

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).

Programme Structure

First year

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.

Second year

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.
