Master of Science in Technology, ELEC programme

The aim of the program is to provide engineers in electrical engineering especially for the needs of the Finnish marine and automotive industry and their subcontractors.

After completing the degree programme ELEC in Electrical engineering, the student

  • is able to apply the essential theories of electrical engineering to practical electrotechnical and electronics applications
  • is able to apply his/her knowledge in jobs in product development, research and marketing as well as in management of these
  • is able to produce main circuit solutions for different power electronics applications and their thermal design.
  • is able to design electromagnetic components, recognise the main loss mechanisms and sources of interference
  • is able to develop electrical drive system concepts (e.g. frequency converter, electric motor or generator and mechanical load)
  • is able to model the operation of different electrical machines and use simulation tools for electromechanical systems and their parts
  • understands vector control methods of rotating electrical machines and is able to design control algorithms or applications software for frequency converters
  • is able to dimension and choose appropriate components for an electrical drive
