General organization:
 

Aim:

The five-year programme in Electrical Engineering aims at educating professional engineers (M.Sc. Eng) with applicable knowledge, skills and attitudes with respect to realization of electrical engineering solutions and their impact on human, society and nature. The education builds on the foundations: formulation of ideas, physical and mathematical modeling, design, communication, implementation and operation. After completed education, the graduates have the cognitive capacity to benefit the international scientific literature in one or more areas of electrical engineering major areas.

 

Learning outcome:

After completion of this programme the graduate in Electrical Engineering should be able to:
  • apply mathematics and physics on electrical engineering problems. In particular, emphasis is put on being able to describe electrical systems and components using mathematical and physical models and use the models to simulate, predict and evaluate events and to assess the validity and limitations of these models in different situations
  • demonstrate ability to critically and systematically integrate knowledge and, in at least one electro-technical area of application, independently identify, formulate and solve complex technical problems, even with limited information, and apply the more advanced mathematics and physics needed within this area
  • design electrical and electronic components and systems according to specification within at least one area of application. In the design process, considerations should be taken to human's conditions and needs, business terms, as well as the societal targets for an economically, socially and ecologically sustainable development
  • develop and critically evaluate technical solutions to electro-technical problems in a system perspective with a holistic view on the lifecycle from idea formulation through specification, development, implementation and operation to decommissioning
  • make use of computer tools in both problem solving as well as in electro-technical design. In particular, emphasis is put on being able to appropriate chose and use the type of programming and the types of computer tools needed within the chosen area of specialization
  • plan and carry out electrical experiments and measurements and critically evaluate the results of these
  • analyze and critically evaluate information in electrical engineering, especially in the chosen area of specialization
  • demonstrate the ability to participate in current research and development work within at least one area of specialization
  • orally and in writing clearly present and discuss conclusions and the knowledge and arguments that form the basis for these in good Swedish and functional English, both with experts in their own field and with people with different professional backgrounds
  • cooperate effectively in groups and have experience of working with people of different backgrounds
  • reflect on their own knowledge and its limitations as well as continuously and independently develop their skills
  • reflect on the possibilities and limitations of technology, its role in society and human's responsibility for how it is used and possess the ability to make judgements and ethical perspectives

 

Extent: 300.0 c

 

Thesis:

Bachelor project (15 credits) is conducted during the spring semester in the third year. To be admitted to the bachelor project, the student must have achieved 97.5 credits in the programme after study period 1 in the third year. Selection of the project takes place in the autumn semester in the third year. The head of programme determines which projects may be chosen by students in the Electrical Engineering programme.

Other information:
 

Compliance with MTS required credits
For students admitted in Electrical Engineering Program (TKELT) in cohort 2010 and earlier, the MTS required credits are met by taking one of the Chalmers MTS classified courses of 7.5 credits.
For students admitted in Electrical Engineering Program (TKELT) in cohort 2011 and later, the MTS required credits are met by taking a MTS course offered in the curriculum of Electrical Engineering Program Year 3. Other MTS courses require an exemption from the program management (director of studies and head of program).

Promotion
In order to study next year the student needs to fulfill the following credit limits (after study period 4):

  • For year 2: 37.5 cr
  • For year 3: 82.5 cr
If the student has not passed the credit limits above he/she cannot register himself/herself and should contact the study guidance counselor for an individual study plan.
