Profile of the Programme

The two year education as Master of Electromechanical Engineering consists of courses studying the design, the production, and the operation of machines, the production and the use of mechanical and electrical power, the automation and control of operations, mechatronics devices, and maritime technology. Given the broad field of applications covered by this Master students are expected to select one main subject, while further diversification through elective courses and the choice of a minor subject is possible.

Students must select one of the 5 following main subjects:

 

Students can acquire more in depth knowledge of specialised fields through selection of elective courses, or through selection of one of the following minor subjects:

Admission to the Master of Electromechanical Engineering - main subject: Electrical Power Engineering is automatic for students holding a "Bachelor of Electromechanical Engineering" degree. Successful completion of some designated preparatory programmes are required for admission of students holding certain other bachelor or master degrees.

Admission to the Master of Electromechanical Engineering - main subject: Control Engineering and Automation is automatic for students holding a "Bachelor of Electromechanical Engineering" degree. Successful completion of some designated preparatory programmes are required for admission of students holding certain other bachelor or master degrees.

Admission to the Master of Electromechanical Engineering - main subject: Mechanical Energy Engineering is automatic for students holding a "Bachelor of Electromechanical Engineering" degree. Successful completion of some designated preparatory programmes are required for admission of students holding certain other bachelor or master degrees.

Admission to the Master of Electromechanical Engineering - main subject: Mechanical Construction is automatic for students holding a "Bachelor of Electromechanical Engineering" degree. Successful completion of some designated preparatory programmes are required for admission of students holding certain other bachelor or master degrees.

Admission to the Master of Electromechanical Engineering - main subject: Maritime Engineering is automatic for students holding a "Bachelor of Electromechanical Engineering" degree. Successful completion of some designated preparatory programmes are required for admission of students holding certain other bachelor or master degrees.

Profile of a Master of Electromechanical Engineering

The education and training of a Master of Electromechanical Engineering aims for both a broad engineering know-how and an in depth expertise in the field(s) of specialization. The education forms engineers capable of performing many different types of functions in business and industry, in the tertiary sector, in government, in education, and in research. After having completed the course programme of the Master of Electromechanical Engineering an engineer should be able to
(i) co-operate efficiently with others in a team, encourage co-operation by others, participate actively and efficiently in meetings and discussions; (ii) supervise the design, the operation, and the maintenance of industrial processes; (iii) have acquired the attitudes and skills for a scientific approach to synthesis, for logical reasoning, and for independent application of these skills and attitudes in scientific and engineering problems; (iv) have acquired a sufficient level of technical and scientific maturity to be able to understand and apply new technical and scientific developments, and to be able to apply these novel developments.
Students selecting the main subject of electrical energy should in particular acquire a specialized knowledge and expertise in all methodologies and tools for the electrical energy (generation, transportation and application of electrical energy, including the design and the use of electrical machines and drives).

Implementation of these educational goals

In order to achieve the goals of the education as Master of Electromechanical Engineering, as described above, the courses offered to the students intend to achieve the following goals:

 

Elective courses and selected minor fields allow acquisition of further in depth knowledge in other domains, or a broadening of the knowledge in other fields that are useful for possible future tasks of an engineer. The specific courses achieving these goals include:
