Study Programs

Academic programs

The recommended schedule is built so that the degree may be completed successfully and on time. Students are advised to follow it, especially during the first year of their studies. Please do not overload yourselves; focus on your studies and try to cut back on external chores (such as work). Good luck!

The department of electrical engineering offers undergraduate (engineer) studies programs in electrical engineering, computer and software engineering, electrical engineering and physics (combined degree) and computer engineering. There are two additional programs: electrical engineering – math and electrical engineering – economics. Outstanding students can join the <program for outstanding students with focus on research>.

Courses and academic tracks

A detailed description of the academic tracks, together with the academic obligations of each track, appears in the newsletter:

<Academic program – undergraduate studies at the electrical engineering department>

In order to make the process of choosing courses easier, students may consult the dependency diagrams bellow. These describe the prerequisites for each course, and the courses for which each course is a prerequisite:

<Dependency diagram for electrical engineering track>

<Dependency diagram for electrical engineering and physics track, starting in the winter semester>

<Dependency diagram for computer and software engineering track>

<Dependency diagram for computer engineering track>

The full list of courses offered by the department, including the syllabi, is available on the <website>.

Courses from other departments as intra-department elective courses

Students from the electrical engineering, computer and software engineering and computer engineering tracks are allowed to take up to 9 credit points of courses from other departments. Any excess points will count as extracurricular credit points. Students from the electrical engineering and physics track may only take the intra-department courses that appear in the specialization groups for this track, and these will be considered as inter-department courses.

Any intra-department course that is mandatory in one of the department’s tracks (except for electrical engineering and physics), will be approved as an intra-department course, as part of the 9 credit points from other departments.

Any intra-department course that appears in a specialization group does not count as part of the 9 credit points from other departments, but as an inter-department elective course (even if the student hasn’t taken the rest of the courses in that course’s specialization group).

Specialization groups

Recommended elective courses have been sorted into different, diverse specialization groups in each of the academic tracks in the department. Each student must complete a number of specialization groups. Electrical engineering track – at least 3 groups, computer and software engineering track – at least 2 groups, electrical engineering and physics track – at least 2 groups, computer engineering track – at least 2 groups.

Complete a group means taking the mandatory courses in the group, along with a (variable) minimal number of courses in the group. For the exact demands of each specialization group see the newsletter (<file>).

The process of choosing specialization groups is not simple. If you do not know what to choose and need additional information, you may turn to the advisors in each of the groups:
