About this program

Master of Electrical Engineering

The Master of Electrical Engineering Program is a comprehensive course of study providing graduate students with the foundational knowledge needed to pioneer the next generation of networked, integrated systems.

The Master of Science in Electrical Engineering teaches the design and implementation of innovative electronic circuits and ICT solutions for almost every sector: from smart health to self-driving cars, from the latest wearables to massive power plants. You'll learn how to solve problems using signalprocessing algorithms, software, hardware and ICs as complimentary components of a truly integrated design.

Our goal is to equip you with the necessary technical skills and methods to contribute to the creation of this digital environment. The program counts four options, each with their own emphasis.
