What other engineers build; electronic engineers make intelligent. Are you one of them?Engineers in electronics play an indispensable role in reducing CO2 emissions and making the transition to sustainable energy. Are you dreaming about combining scientific and engineering knowledge with creativity to solve some of today's biggest electronic engineering challenges? Then continue reading.

Take a quantum leap - become an engineer in Electronics

An electronics engineering degree from SDU gives you a wide range of career opportunities both in Denmark and abroad. There is a shortage of electronic engineers, and the skills you have developed will be sought after across a wide range of industries. 

What will you learn? 

You will learn how to develop several types of electronic products. This can, e.g., be within green energy systems such as wind turbines and solar cells, robots, electric cars or electronics for medical equipment. 

How is the education structured? 

The programme consists of a combination of theoretical courses and project work. Each semester consists of a main theme which is the basis for the theory and project work.
  • In the first semester, you are introduced to the basic electronic components and how to analyse electronic circuits. You learn how to write a program for an embedded computer system, and you build up your knowledge in mathematics and physics. 
  • In the second semester, you will learn about more advanced electronic circuits with active components, signal processing using electronic filters as well as more advanced mathematical tools for circuit analysis. 
  • In the third semester, you will build on your knowledge of electronics and work with more complex electronic systems such as frequency converters and electric motors as well as learning the basics of control engineering. 
  • In the fourth semester, you will work primarily with digital electronics and advanced hardware and software which is, e.g., used in digital signal processing or within advanced control engineering systems. 
  • The fifth semester is about interdisciplinary collaboration, where you work in a project group with students from other engineering disciplines and where you will combine your electronics expertise with their expertise within, e.g., mechanical engineering to develop a complex product. You can also choose to study this semester abroad. 
  • In the sixth semester, you will have a mandatory internship in a company. The internship can be spent in Denmark or abroad. 
  • In the seventh and final semester, you work on your graduation project - often in cooperation with a company.

What can I become?

With a BEng in Electronics, opportunities truly are many and global. You can, e.g., work with electronics for sustainable energy technology or for medical equipment, computers and data networks, software development, robot and drone technology and many other types of products that are based on advanced electronics. 

Guaranteed first job

As an engineering student at SDU Sønderborg, you are guaranteed your first job when you have completed your BEng in Engineering (applies to students who started in September 2020 or later). Read more about first job guaranteed

Can I continue my studies?

A BEng in Engineering is an independent, complete education. So after the 3½ years, you are a graduate engineer and ready to start your engineering career. If you want to immerse yourself further, you can take a Master of Science in Electronics (Sønderborg) or Master of Science in Energy Systems (Odense).
