Students from this course participate in the multidisciplinary challenge of the Solar Boat in the Solar1 Monte Carlo Cup race.

In your 1st year, you will get a solid foundation in the broad field of electrical engineering. You will learn about fundamental theories and apply your new knowledge in small group projects related to problems from the field. These projects will help you develop your problem-solving and communication skills. They will also offer insight into current issues that are relevant to professional practice.

After your 1st semester, you can choose to specialise in one of the following areas:
