Curriculum

The Bachelor phase lasts three years and is completed with a Bachelor End Project. Each year is worth 60 credits, with each credit equivalent to 28 hours of study. A year is therefore 1680 hours of study, or 42 weeks of 40 hours.

The first year, the propaedeutic year, is designed to give the student insight into the contents of the rest of the study, subsequent studies and professional practice. It comprises basic subjects(including mathematics and physics) and various electrical engineering subjects. There is also plenty of scope for Design Based Learning projects (OGO). Our department offers a number of fascinating DBL assignments in the first year in which you will learn to solve electrical engineering problems through working in project teams and combining and applying knowledge from different disciplines. Note that you will have to choose at least one DBL project in the first year as projects are not part of our compulsory major courses.

In the second and third year you will explore Electrical Engineering in more depth and you will have more elective subjects. Also in the second year you will have to choose at least one DBL project. In the third year you will focus on your electives mostly (50%) and complete your Bachelor with the Bachelor’s Final Project (BEP).

Professional skills (e.g. social and communicative skills) are largely integrated in the design assignments, supplemented by separate training.

Both the propaedeutic year and the Bachelor's phase close with an examination, the propaedeutic exam and the Bachelor's exam. To be allowed at the Bachelor's exam, you must have passed the propaedeutic exam.
