Learn to develop analogue and digital electronics

Do you want to develop the electronic products of the future? Then an education as a Bachelor of Engineering in Electronics might be for you.

Electronic solutions are a big part of our everyday lives, and the development of electronics is experiencing explosive growth. As a graduate engineer in Electronics, you will deal with project management and development of analogue and digital electronics as well as intelligent systems and products.

What will I learn?

During the programme, you will learn how to develop industrial and consumer electronics. This can be, for example, within green energy systems such as wind turbines and solar cells, robots, or electronics for medical equipment. You will learn about analogue and digital electronics as well as the use of modelling and simulation tools as part of the development process. You will also learn how to develop advanced software, which is essential for Danish and international companies.

The development of new processes and products requires a broad approach, the technical aspects cannot stand alone. Therefore, you will learn to include all relevant aspects and think coherently when developing new products.

During the programme, you will work in project groups, where you and your fellow students will solve problems for companies through case-based work. Here you will learn to take into account the environment, economy, technological possibilities and the users of the product.

How is the programme structured?

The programme consists of a combination of theoretical courses and project work. 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 electronics and what is needed to be able to develop electronic products. This also includes some disciplines within mathematics, physics, and programming. In the second semester, you will gain an understanding of industrial electronics, which builds on your mathematical knowledge and you will be introduced to signal processing and electronic filters. In the third semester, you will build on your knowledge of electronics and work with more advanced electronic systems such as frequency converters and electric motors as well as the development of control systems. In the fourth semester, you will work primarily with digital electronics and advanced hardware and software which is used, for example, in digital signal processing or within advanced control systems. The fifth semester is about interdisciplinary collaboration, project management and power electronics. You can also choose to study this semester abroad. In the 6th semester, you must complete a six-month engineering internship in a Danish or foreign company. In the 7th and final semester, you must prepare a graduation project - often in collaboration with a company.

What can I become?

The programme gives you a wide range of career opportunities both at home and abroad. You can, for example, work with medical equipment, computers and data networks, control and monitoring systems, energy-saving products, mobile communications, electrical devices and machines, robots, software development, regulation and automation of production processes and industrial electronics.

Guaranteed first job

As an engineering student at SDU Sønderborg, you are guaranteed your first job when you have completed your BEng in Engineering (applies to students who started in September 2020 or later). Read more about first job guaranteed.

Can I continue my studies?

A BEng in Engineering is an independent, complete education. So, after the 3½ years, you are a graduate engineer and ready to start your engineering career.

If you want to immerse yourself further, you can take a Master of Science in Electronics (Sønderborg) or Master of Science in Electronics (Odense).

That is why you should study...

  • You are guaranteed your first job once you have completed the programme
  • You will learn how to develop analogue and digital electronics
  • You will get a company-oriented education with good career opportunities
