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:

Knowledge and understanding

After completion of this programme the graduate in Electrical Engineering should show:
  • knowledge of the scientific basis of electrical engineering and proven experience as well as insight into current research and development work
  • broad knowledge in electrical engineering, including math and physics, as well as deepen knowledge in certain parts of electrical engineering.
Skills and abilities

After completion of this programme the graduate in Electrical Engineering should be able 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 in this area
  • participate in current research and development work in at least one area of specializationdevelop and critically evaluate technical solutions to electro-technical problems in a system perspective with a holistic view of the lifecycle from idea formulation through specification, development, implementation and operation to decommissioning
  • plan and carry out electrical experiments and measurements, and critically evaluate the results of these
  • design electrical and electronic components and systems according to specification within at least one application area. 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
  • cooperate effectively in groups and have experience of working with people of different backgrounds
  • 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 persons with different professional backgrounds
  • apply math and physics to electrical engineering problems, particular emphasis is placed on being able to describe electrical systems and components with mathematical and physical models, using the models in digital tools to simulate, predict and evaluate events, and to assess the validity and limitation of these models in different situations
  • make use of digital tools for problem solving as well as electro-technical design. Particular emphasis is placed on being able to appropriately choose and use the kind of programming and the types of digital tools needed within the chosen area of specialization 
  • analyze and critically evaluate information in electrical engineering, especially in the chosen area of specialization.

Judgement and approach

After completion of this programme the graduate in Electrical Engineering should be able to:
  • make assessments with regard to relevant scientific, social and ethical aspects, as well as reflect on ethical aspects of research and development work
  • reflect on the possibilities and limitations of electrical engineering, its role in society, and people's responsibility for how it is used, including social and economic aspects, as well as environmental and work environment aspects
  • identify his/her need for further knowledge and continuously and independently develop his/her skills
  • discuss the opportunities and challenges of digitalization and how it affects society from an engineering perspective.

Several elective courses in third year lead to in-depth skills in applying digital tools, such as data structures and algorithms, machine oriented programming, and computer-based design tools. There are also elective MTS courses that lead to in-depth knowledge about the possibilities of digitalization and its impact on society. Among the accredited mater's programmes, students can choose programmes that give the skills to develop the digital tools of the future and lead the digitalization of society.

 

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 105 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.
