MSc in Electrical Engineering
Combining knowledge with technical expertise
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 for regulation as well as data transmission and collection.
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 specialist lecturers, students can design precisely the study plan that suits their interests and background.
The Department of Engineering has a number of social spaces where you can meet other students outside class, and this is an excellent basis for social activities. There is also an engineering club for staff and students through which students can network with like-minded people. As in all departments, there is a popular Friday bar, and the Tågekammeret association organises celebrations and social events for all science and technology students across departments.
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 as consultants in ATS (approved technological service) institutes or patent agencies, while others have sought jobs with knowledge communication within the media and publishing industries, and in the finance sector. Graduates also have the option of continuing their studies at doctoral level, often in the form of an industrial PhD.
“An interdisciplinary approach is key to finding the coolest technological solutions to all sorts of problems. At AU the engineering students have the great advantage that they work with students from other disciplines. Drawing on other people’s knowledge in my work is something I do almost every day. I mostly work with development of software and hardware, and I feel very well equipped for this by my degree from Aarhus University. It is a big strength that I was trained at AU to use theory to solve tasks. It has allowed me to start my working life as a consultant.”
