The Master's Programme in Automation and Electrical Engineering is a broad multi-disciplinary study programme providing graduates with the ability to work in and between a wide variety of fields ranging from traditional electrical engineering and energy sector to biomedical engineering and robotics. Drawing from a strong mathematical and natural science basis, the curriculum is flexible, allowing each student to compile her/his own unique combination of courses according to her/his own interests.
The main fields of the programme are automation, biomedical engineering, and electrical power and energy engineering. Within these, the available focus areas include electrical grids, electric motor drives, lighting technology, control engineering, robotics, embedded systems, imaging and machine perception as well as microsystems, new hybrid carbon nanomaterials, and personalized health care.
To prepare the graduates for their future work with large and often complex systems, the programme includes several practical project works in groups which provide skills for solving multifaceted and ill-defined problems similar to those faced in the actual professional life. These projects typically include experimental and practical components as well as fundamental theoretical aspects. The programme also gives the student a comprehensive foundation for doctoral studies.
The programme futures three Majors, which offer several study paths. The learning outcome of the Master’s programme and its Majors are as follows:
Upon completion of the program the student will be able to
Further, specific learning outcomes of each Major are given in the description of the majors.
