If you are interested in how technology can contribute to the electrification of the transport sector, the Master's Programme in All-Electric Propulsion Systems is what you are looking for. By developing technical skills in the field of electromobility you will learn how electric vehicles work and study how the electric drivelines of cars, trains, boats and planes are built.
Uppsala University carries out research in the field of electricity, electromobility and renewable energy in close collaboration with the industry. You will get in touch with some of the biggest companies in the Swedish industry through study visits and guest lectures. During the programme you will have opportunities for degree projects and project courses in industry and research groups. The city of Uppsala has set the goal to become fossil-free by 2030, which makes it the perfect place to experiment and develop new solutions within electromobility.
The need for well-trained engineers and technicians with expertise in the electrification of the transport sector is booming - both in Sweden and abroad. Students with a Master's degree in Electrical Engineering are highly attractive in Sweden and internationally since the programme provides you with a new unique profile and set of skills, designed to prepare you to take the lead in the automotive industry.
You can choose to pursue PhD studies after your degree, or to work in the industry sector.
Examples of jobs suited for graduates of this programme:
- project manager in consultancy companies - for instance, to support their customers choices or evaluate the performance of different solutions in the field of green transportation,
- design engineer in the automotive industry - for example, to design and develop drivelines for electric vehicles or programme electric motors' control strategies,
- researcher at the university or research institutes - among others, to develop smart strategies for charging EVs, or to investigate the potential of different solutions in the field of electromobility and how to integrate those solutions in our cities,
- project coordinator in the public sector - for instance, to support the municipalities in sustainable investments in the transport sector.
