The Master of Science in Engineering programme in Electrical Engineering aims to create and develop the engineering skills required to contribute to the development of electrical engineering products and systems, with applications such as energy supply, communication, robotics and automation, as well as medical technology.

Knowledge and understanding

An engineer graduating from the Degree Programme in Electrical Engineering must

  • have knowledge of the scientific foundation of electrical engineering and proven experience.
  • be able to apply a creative and critical work approach in order to, within a given framework, formulate and solve problems with adequate methods and tools.
  • be able to analyze electrical engineering problems through a systems perspective, with a holistic viewpoint of technical systems and their lifecycles; from the idea and needs to specifications, development, manufacturing, operation and decommissioning processes.
  • exhibit the insight that problem-solving takes its point  of departure in needs and functionality, with consideration to business conditions, environment and society.

Skills and abilities

An engineer graduating from the Degree Programme in Electrical Engineering must

  • have the ability to independently apply mathematics and science within the discipline of electrical engineering.
  • have mastered and be able to independently apply significant relationships within electrical engineering as well as to be able to formulate, analyze and solve complex electrical engineering problems.
  • be able to analyse technical problems from a systems perspective from the idea/need through its specification, development, manufacturing and operation.
  • exhibit ample ability in engineering-related contexts to be able to communicate verbally and in writing with different target groups in Swedish and English, and to be able to discuss the conclusions as well as knowledgeably support the basis for such conclusions.
  • exhibit the ability to co-operate, plan, lead and organize.
  • be able to follow and utilize developments in knowledge within electrical engineering and to be aware of the primary features of current research and development in the field of technology

Ability to make judgments and adopt a standpoint

An engineer graduating from the Degree Programme in Electrical Engineering must

  • exhibit insight into the possibilities and limitations of technology, its role in society, and the responsibility of mankind for how it is used nationally and internationally.
  • exhibit an understanding of and respect for the significance of how electrical engineering affects people, society in general, and the environment with respect to limited natural resources.
  • exhibit an awareness of the ethical aspects of research and development work.
