What is this programme about

About Electrical and Electronic Engineering

The field of Electrical and Electronic Engineering has many practical applications, for example in healthcare, the automotive industry, sustainable energy and the processing industry. This course will give you all the necessary theory and skills to become an engineer. In this profession you often work in a team with other engineers and people from other disciplines. If you specialise in Embedded Systems (ES) you will design, build and test intelligent systems and smart devices. If your focus is on Industrial and Power Systems (IPS) you will design smart solutions in industrial automation.

Studying Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Your 1st year will give you a solid foundation in all the current topics in the field of electrical and electronic engineering. By the end of the 1st semester, you’re ready to delve into your area of specialisation:

  • Embedded Systems (ES) or
  • Industrial and Power Systems (IPS).

Right from the start you go hands-on, applying what you’ve learned during individual and group projects. This approach gives you invaluable practical skills: not just the technical skills that every engineer needs, but also social and communicative skills.

In the 3rd year you will do a work placement at a research institute or company of your choice. The work placement aims to develop your professional knowledge and skills, and prepares you for the job market. Before embarking on this exciting challenge, you get a thorough preparation programme that tackles all the important aspects of the work placement. With the IPS specialisation, you might do your work placement at TenneT, one of Europe’s top five electricity transmission system operators. If you’re specialising in ES you could go to Prodrive, an electronic and mechatronic solutions firm.

In the 4th year you follow a minor, an elective semester aimed at broadening or deepening your interests and skills. If you like, you can stay close to home by choosing one of HAN’s excellent practice-based minors:

  • Embedded Vision Design: developing embedded hardware/software solutions to extract data from camera images.
  • Out of Control: designing control systems for motion, transport and energy conversion.
  • Power Minor: designing an electrical system or installation (in collaboration with TenneT and two other universities)
