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.

Graduated. And then?
