Learning Outcomes of the Programme
After completing the Master's Programme MEC&ELEC the graduate of Mechanical Engineering
After completing the Master's Programme MEC&ELEC the graduate of Electrical Engineering
is capable of independent scientific work, searching information and analytical problem solving. He/she can work as a member of a team, is able to organise, carry out and lead projects and has the required communication skills. A Master of Science in Electrical Engineering is aware of the ethical aspects of the field and its effects on society, and is capable of critically assessing the future prospects of the field.
A Master of Science in Electrical Engineering is able to apply the essential theories of electrical engineering to practical electrotechnical and electronics applications. A graduate from the Degree Programme is able to apply his/her knowledge in jobs related to product development, research and marketing as well as management of these areas. In addition to technical competences, the student may complement his/her professional skills by business studies. For students interested in foreign languages and international affairs, the university provides a large array of language studies as well as excellent opportunities for student exchange and training abroad. The Degree Programme also prepares the student for postgraduate and independent studies.
An ELEC Master of Science in Electrical Engineering is able to devise main circuit solutions for different power electronics applications and their thermal design. In addition, the student can design electromagnetic components and recognise the main loss mechanisms and sources of interference. The student is able to model the operation of different electrical machines and use simulation tools for electromechanical systems and their parts. The student is able to develop electrical drive system concepts (e.g. frequency converter, electric motor or generator and mechanical load), and to choose and dimension appropriate components for an electrical drive. In addition, the student understands vector control methods of rotating electrical machines and is able to design control algorithms or applications software for frequency converters.
