Course content

Electromechanical engineering is a collection of engineering disciplines around the themes motion, force and energy. The world of electromechanical engineering encompasses development, design, manufacturing, testing and control of tools, machines, vehicles and other electrical or mechanical systems, as well as research on these topics. The Master of Science in Electromechanical Engineering is a two-year degree programme intended to prepare students for a future technical leadership role in industry. The programme offers in-depth training in all aspects of electromechanical engineering and its economic and social implications based on a profound scientific basis. Graduates will have acquired an attitude of scientific synthesis, analytical reasoning as well as scientific and technical independency. Training in research skills provides mastery in developing, implementing and monitoring technical and scientific innovations.

The Faculty of Engineering and Architecture (FEA) offers most of the Master’s programmes in Engineering in English. This underlines the international ambition of the faculty, as well as the importance of international education and multiple language skills for students.

Course structure

The programme consists of a general module, main subject modules, elective courses and a dissertation.
The general module contains courses on all subjects related to Electromechanical Engineering, ranging from electrical drives over machine manufacturing to management skills.

Students can choose one out of five main subject modules with specialist courses on different subjects of interest.

  • The main subject Electrical Power Engineering handles all aspects of generation, distribution and use of electrical energy, with special attention to electrical machines and drives and electrical power systems.
  • The main subject Mechanical Energy Engineering concerns energy conversion and energy use in thermal systems, engines, machines and all kinds of industrial equipment.
  • The main subject Mechanical Construction focuses on design, manufacturing and maintenance of machines and mechanical equipment.
  • The main subject Control Engineering and Automation is about control and automation applied to mechanical and electrical systems and processes in general.
  • The main subject Maritime Engineering treats the design, construction and operation of maritime systems such as ships and offshore constructions.

Through elective courses students broaden their knowledge and skills in technical and non-technical subjects. The Master Dissertation is a final step in the learning process. It aims at training the ability to independently perform scientific research.
