Best Electrical Engineering Schools and Universities in Europe in 2021

The work of electrical engineers is fundamental to our modern society. Can you imagine how things would look like if we didn’t have electricity or internet for a few days or weeks? Luckily, we don’t have to!

In addition to being important, Electrical Engineering is also a fascinating and complex discipline. We have devices in our pocket that can quick charge in less than an hour, and now we’re witnessing the emergence of graphite batteries.

These are the kind of advancements you can work on after graduating with a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering. If you already have your heart set on studying abroad in Europe, these are the best electrical engineering schools:
