SPECIALISE AS YOU CHOOSE

As a student on the MSc in Electrical Engineering programme, you have the option of specialising in a number of areas within electrical engineering, including analogue and digital electronics and signal processing.

During the first year, students take courses which provide the academic foundation required for the chosen area of specialisation. Students can choose from a wide range of specialist areas ranging from optics to electro-optics, from semiconductor technology to pure electronics.

BUILD YOUR OWN STUDY PLAN

There is considerable freedom in choosing the subjects for the study plan and students can select from a number of optional modules, including experimental technology, data collection, micro-controls, materials physics, and much more. In consultation with the Head of programme, students can design precisely the study plan that suits their interests and background.

STUDENT LIFE

At Aarhus University you will be part of an extensive engineering environment with more than 3,000 engineering students. So you will have ample opportunity to get involved in both academic and social student associations with your fellow students. Aarhus University campus is unique, with its buildings closely grouped together and surrounded by nature. The campus is conveniently situated close to the city centre, and student accommodation is readily available as long as you apply on time. There are a range of activities, ranging from running to a regatta on the lake, as well as guest lectures, film screenings, and university events taking place throughout the year. To ensure student well-being, counselling services are available to offer students support and guidance during their time at Aarhus.

CAREERS

The MSc programme in Electrical Engineering aims to train development engineers to acquire the potential to innovate in advanced-technology companies both in Denmark and abroad. Graduates find work in a wide range of fields, from basic engineering or science research in joint projects involving research institutes and the industrial sector, to R&D projects in industry. Many graduates have decided to work in the public and private industry as R&D engineers. Graduates also have the option of continuing their studies at doctoral level, often in the form of an industrial PhD.
