Electrical Engineering

The development of new, advanced electronic solutions is becoming increasingly important in our globalized modern society — for example in the national health service and monitoring of the environment and climate.

And if you would like to help design and develop the next generation of electronic products — from the idea phase to the finished product — then the BEng in Electrical Engineering is the right choice for you.


What will you learn?

The BEng in Electrical Engineering study programme will give you solid application-oriented skills in electronics and programmable systems. You will study mathematics, electromagnetism, electronics, circuit engineering, programming, and signal processing, and learn to develop analogue and digital electronic systems. You will thus be equipped to solve the challenges associated with the development of high-tech products.

The focus is on creating solutions that benefit both people and society.

Study programme structure

The mandatory courses during the first year of study give you a solid knowledge base on which you can build. Later in your studies you will select electives and specialize in the area that interests you most. Examples of specializations include electronics design, where you design modern equipment for applications like measuring and instrumentation, or sound and acoustics, where you can work on designing and developing microphones, speakers, hearing aids, etc. As part of the study programme, you will do an engineering internship, where you will gain practical experience in performing engineering tasks.

In your seventh semester, you will do your BEng project, which is often performed in collaboration with a company. Examples of companies include Danfoss, Brüel & Kjær, Radiometer, Ørsted, Grundfos, Oticon, and Bang & Olufsen.

Career opportunities

With a BEng in electrical engineering, you can work with development, design, project engineering, maintenance, consultancy, and project management for electronics and IT companies. You will also have good career opportunities with manufacturing and consultancy companies.
