Informasjon om studiestart

Electrical Engineering deals about applied electrical technology. It is a complex and dynamic discipline ranging from microelectronics through electromagnetism to high-power technology, from development of tomorrow's information technology to automation and instrumentation of complex industrial processes. Electronic engineers have for decades revolutionized our ordinary day. The concept "high tech" is largely based on innovations in the field of electrical engineering. Within the range of this discipline, you have the opportunity to learn to master a diverse range of skills.

  • Renewable energy
  • Stability and reliability in power systems
  • Operation, control and economics in power systems
  • Power electronics and electric motor drives
  • Control theory and development of advanced control systems
  • Programming skills for design, development and logic systems

The master's program will provide you a solid understanding of areas such as computer engineering, signal processing, control engineering, power electronics, microprocessor technology and programming, mechatronics and electric motor drives and electromagnetism. You will also work in practical, industry-related project, which provides additional opportunity for academic study. Both the projects and the final thesis is usually performed in cooperation with companies. This gives you the unique opportunity to get in contact with a possible future employer.

After completing the study program, the candidate has the following
learning outcome:


  • has knowledge of the principles of electromagnetism and its application in electrical engineering.
  • knows the principles of electric power system.
  • has a knowledge of energy conversion using power electronics. and applications to electrical machines and power supplies.
  • has knowledge of measurement sensors, signal processing, and how these could be integrated in an advanced control system.
  • has basic knowledge of computer architecture and programming.
  • has basic knowledge about economics and innovation, with special focus on idea development.
  • has a deep understanding in one or more of the following topics:

    • operation and control of power systems
    • integration of renewable energy and smart grids.
    • stability of power systems
    • thorough knowledge of electrical machines, their dynamics and choice of suitable power electronic converter types for motor drives.
    • programmable controllers and logic systems
    • design and production electronic solutions


  • can use linear algebra and numerical methods as mathematical
    tools for analysing physical processes and technical solutions.
  • can combine power electronics, control engineering and electrical
    systems into advanced electric motor drives.
  • can perform simulations and analysis of electric power systems.
  • can analyse electromagnetic fields in electric systems.
  • can complete and document a larger independent research work in the form of a master thesis.
  • can perform one or more of the following skills:

    • stability analysis of power systems
    • integration of distributed renewable energy into the grid
    • can design and prototype electric circuits.
    • can use programmable microelectronics in order to control and monitor mechatronics, electric systems, electric devices, and industrial processes.

General competence:

  • gains insight into new and innovative technologies and will be able to put these into an interdisciplinary society and ethical perspective.
  • gains insight into various aspects of future network systems, energy solutions and sustainability challenges.
  • can disseminate knowledge in oral and written form to professionals and non-specialists.
  • is able to see the combination of physical energy systems and software in cyber-physical systems and mechatronics.

With a Master in Electrical Engineering, you can work in development, construction, research, environmental surveillance, data technology, electrical supply and instrumentation. Employers are often in the supplier industry, power sector and maritime sector, although the education is relevant for most uses of electricity.

With a growing focus on the development of sustainable and renewable energy production, electric energy will play a key role in many new energy-intensive areas of our society. We see it in transport, on land, sea and in the air as an exciting development area. The electrical engineer will play a central role in the renewable energy community of the future.

Admission requirements:

A relevant undergraduate Bachelor degree in Engineering programme in power electronics and electrical machines. Basic knowledge in power systems is also an advantage.

In addition, the following requirements must be met:

• minimum 25 credits in mathematics (equivalent to Mathematical Methods 1, 2 og 3)

• 5 credits in statistics

• 7,5 ects i physics on a higher level is required.
