Designing highly innovative systems for signal processing is your passion, e.g. in biomedical applications or in telecommunication. Or your interest focuses on microsystems or robotics.

Having obtained a relevant bachelor’s degree, you want to further expand your knowledge and competencies in this field. Specialize in a chosen field, to prepare for a career in science or industry. The master’s programme in Electrical Engineering gives you this opportunity.

You learn to define your own paths in analysis, research and design. Cooperate in industrial design teams or scientific research groups. Join one of the research institutes of the University. Choose one of the five specializations: Biomedical Systems; Electronic System Design; Measurement and Control Engineering; Microsystems and Micro-electronics; Telecommunication Networks.

In national and international reviews, the Electrical Engineering programmes of the University of Twente have a very high rating according to both students and professionals.

The first year of the programme will depend on your specific background and will prepare you for the specialization of your choice in addition to core subjects. In the second year you will further extend your knowledge and skills within the chosen specialization, normally through both a preliminary project including research training and the final thesis project.
