Overview

Program description:
The BSc Program in Electrical Engineering is designed to give students a thorough understanding of the tools, methods, applications and practice of electrical engineering. It is both theoretical and practical in its orientation, with the goal to provide an education that is directly applicable to positions in industry.

The program has an integrated curriculum. Out of the 210 credits to earn during the 7 semesters, 80 credits are dedicated to electrical engineering and the underlying knowledge. On one hand, this is provided through lecture courses for the apprehension of the theoretical background. On the other hand, there are plenty of practical and laboratory courses for acquiring the necessary proficiency and skills. Furthermore, the curriculum contains English language courses (6 credits) and basic studies in economics (10 credits). In addition to these compulsory subjects, 10 credits are to be obtained from elective subjects related to the field, and 4 credits from electives in human and economic sciences.

The first 4 semesters of the program comprise mainly foundation and core engineering subjects. The last 3 semesters also include specialization subjects, laboratory work and project work. Besides, the economics subjects and the electives are to be taken during this period. In the 7th semester, students should write a thesis as well. To earn the degree, they have to take a final exam and defend their thesis.

Students can choose from the below specializations to study from the 5th semester:
• “Sustainable Electric Energetics” covers the design and safe operation of electrical energy transmission and distribution systems, the design and operation of electric machines, and operational principles and applications of low and high voltage switching devices.
• “Embedded and Control Systems” focuses on computer-based and application-oriented systems, which operate autonomously and have intensive information exchange with their physical-technological environment.
• “Infocommunication Systems” is concerned with telecommunication and computer network-based applications (voice, data, image, video, multimedia and composite social information systems).


Entry requirements:
1) Completed SECONDARY-school studies with an overall result of min. 70%. This should be proven by a leaving CERTIFICATE (high-school diploma) AND the TRANSCRIPT of all corresponding records.
Applicants still at school should upload, IN ADDITION to the transcript, an official certificate of the EXPECTED date of graduation.

2) Appropriate knowledge of ENGLISH, proven by EITHER
a) a recent certificate of an internationally recognised, INTERNATIONAL language EXAM of overall B2 level, covering ALL the 4 basic SKILLS (reading, listening, writing, speaking), as detailed below٭;
OR
b) an official medium-of-INSTRUCTION certificate of the SECONDARY-school studies (only if the FULL programme is given in English)٭٭.

3) Sufficient knowledge in MATHEMATICS and PHYSICS, proven at online TESTS during the admission procedure. (There is a minimum entry score set for both tests respectively.)

٭ ONLY the following language exams and results are accepted:
- IELTS min. 5.5;
- TOEFL IBT min. 80;
- Cambridge FCE min. 162;
