Learning outcomes

You will learn to understand how electrical energy is generated, how it is transmitted and used, how electrical systems are controlled, and how the electricity market works.

You will also learn to develop new electrotechnical equipment and systems.

Your studies will emphasise energy efficiency and the production and use of clean energy. This involves deep understanding of emerging technologies such as smart grids, wind and solar energy, electrical machinery, automation and power electronics, among other things. You will develop an excellent understanding of the phenomena related to electricity and the operating principles of electrical engineering and electronics.

The emphases of the programme have been selected on the basis of the skills required in the working world. The programme stands out on a broad scale due to its close collaboration with other engineering degree programmes.

At the end of the programme, you will be able to use basic skills in mathematics and science and solve problems by applying suitable mathematical methods. You will be aware of the essential laws of physics and be able to apply them to various physical processes, understand physical phenomena and be able to solve problems related to them, describe simple dynamics systems using continuous time differential equations and simulate them, and use digital solving environments in the practical applications of the methods.

You will understand the principle of feedback control and apply the basic methods of control engineering in devices and machines.

Guidelines and regulations of electrical safety will become familiar to you: you will learn about electrical installations and electromagnetic compatibility and act according to them in the case of an electrical accident.
