Master in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology

A Bachelor’s degree helps you to get your first job with interesting assignments and a good salary. But maybe you have learned things in your Bachelor programme you want to explore further? Or you want to focus on completely new fields of knowledge? Or you think about working in research and development or even doing a PhD? Some professional careers are eased by a Master’s degree, and for others, such a degree is essential.

If you have obtained a first-level university degree in Electrical Engineering or Information Technology, then we are happy to welcome you on our Master’s programme which has been running since 2013.

The Master's programme Electrical Engineering and Information Technology is offered as a part-time degree and helps to deepen and enhance the knowledge acquired in a relevant undergraduate programme. It provides individual opportunities of specialisation in Power engineering and Information Technology and Digitalisation. Graduates will be offered a wide professional range of opportunities in industry, research and development or in higher public service and also qualified for occupying leading positions and doing a PhD project.
