University rank #801 (WUR) ,
The "Electrical Engineering" 2nd-cycle study programme leads to "magisterij" (master's degree). It is implemented by the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.

About

The aim of the study programme is to qualify students for independent, high demanding professional work in the industry and research in the fields of automation and robotics, electronics, or power engineering. The fundamental goals of the programme are:

  • provide deeper knowledge of electrical engineering and its specific disciplines in connection with knowledge of computer and information science. This will enable graduates to successfully work in the field of developing electro-technical devices and systems, as well as in planning and leading complex technological processes;

  • ensure a deeper knowledge in the specific field of power systems, electronics, automation and robotics;

  • qualify students to transfer new theoretical knowledge into practice;

  • qualify graduates to enrol in a doctoral programme where they can continue their professional growth and life-long learning;

  • develop the ability to evaluate new technologies from the perspective of the increasing goals and restrictions of society;

  • teach students how to use all available sources of knowledge;

  • encourage the mobility of students; and

  • general competences achieved with completion of the programme.

Students will specifically gain the following competences:

  • ability to use natural sciences, mathematics and computer technology to solve technical problems;

  • ability to use analytical, experimental and simulation methods to solve practical problems in the professional field;

  • ability to integrate theoretical findings, methods of developmental research work and modern planning tools to solve complex technical problems;

  • ability to publicly introduce technical, developmental, organizational and working solutions in written or oral form;

  • confidence in implementing independent research methods and techniques, and analyzing and evaluating research results;

  • autonomy in professional work, critiquing suggested solutions and taking responsibility for solutions;

  • ability to organize and lead developmental projects and professional groups;

  • ability to develop new concepts and technologies in the field of energy-mass conversions and electrical energy processes; and

  • ability to develop new concepts and technologies in the field of signal conversions and energyconversions in power systems, telecommunications and automatic control systems.

Studies finish with a successful defence of a master's thesis. Students acquire the professional title of "magister inženir elektrotehnike or magistrica inženirka elektrotehnike" (abbr.: mag. inž. el.).

Access to further studies: the 3rd-cycle (doctoral) study programme.
