Electronics engineers are facing an exceptionally bright future. Are you one of them?
With a Bachelor’s degree in Electronics Engineering, you can make a real-life impact in society. Electric cars, green energy technology such as wind turbines or solar panels, electronics for the intelligent home or energy reducing systems are just some of many options. Are you passionate about developing innovative electronic equipment? Then continue reading.
Take a quantum leap – become an engineer in electronics
The world relies on the ingenuity of electronics engineers. who can innovate, collaborate and make their mark on the world. With a degree in Electronics Engineering from SDU you can switch on your potential.
As a new engineering graduate from SDU Sønderborg, you are offered 6 months of employment if you haven’t landed your first job after you finished your MSc studies.
Reasons to study
That is why you should study...
- You are guaranteed your first job once you have completed the master's programme
- You learn to develop and design electronic products
- You have good career opportunities both in Denmark and abroad
What will you learn?
You will learn to develop different types of electronic products. This can, e.g., be within green energy systems such as wind turbines and solar cells, robots, electric cars or electronics for medical equipment.
- learn about analogue, digital and power electronics as well as signal processing
- learn how to develop advanced software and how to use computer-based modelling and simulation tools for electronic components and circuits
- be taught that the design of electronic circuits requires strong skills in advanced mathematics and a good understanding of the underlying physics
- learn to consider not only the technical aspects – a broader approach is needed when developing new electronic products
- learn to include all relevant aspects such as economy and the environment when developing new products
- work in project groups, where you and your fellow students will solve problems for companies through case-based work
- learn how to apply the theoretical knowledge in practice as well as how to work on a project incl. project planning, risk assessment, teamwork etc.
How is the education structured?
The programme consists of a combination of theoretical courses and practical project work in groups. Each semester consists of a main theme, which is the basis for the theory and project work.
- In the first semester, you are introduced to basic electronic components and how to analyse electronic circuits. You learn how to write a program for an embedded computer system, and you build up your knowledge in mathematics and physics.
- In the second semester, you will learn about more advanced electronic circuits with active components, signal processing using electronic filters as well as more advanced mathematical tools for circuit analysis.
- In the third semester, you will build on your knowledge of electronics and work with more complex electronic systems such as frequency converters and electric motors as well as learning the basics of control engineering.
- In the fourth semester, you will primarily work with digital electronics and with advanced hardware and software which, e.g., is used in digital signal processing or within advanced control engineering systems.
- The fifth semester is about interdisciplinary collaboration where you work in a project group with students from other engineering disciplines, and where you will combine your electronics expertise with their expertise within, e.g., mechanical engineering to develop a complex product. You can also choose to study this semester abroad.
- In the sixth semester, while you write your bachelor project, you can specialise further by taking elective courses.
What can you become?
With a Bachelor's degree in Electronics, it is possible to continue your studies with a Master's degree in Electronics. As a graduate (Master of Science) in Electronics, you will typically work in development, project management, consulting or sales. You can, for example, work with electronics for sustainable energy technology or for medical equipment, computers and data networks, software development, robot and drone technology and many other types of products that are based on advanced electronics. The programme gives you several career opportunities - both in Denmark and abroad.
Can you continue your studies?
The bachelor's programme lasts three years, after which you take the two-year master's programme to achieve a Master’s degree in Electronics. A Bachelor in Electronics will therefore often continue the programme with a relevant master's degree in, for example, Electronics in Sønderborg.
