Applied Industrial Electronics

Power electronics, electrical machines, instrumentation, automation and robots play key roles in our society today. With an education in Applied Industrial Electronics in Esbjerg you can help shape the development of these areas.

How to apply

The Bachelor's programme in Applied Industrial Electronics equips you to work as an electronic engineer. In the programme, you will learn how power electronic converters and electrical machines function and how they are developed. For example, you can work with underwater robots or on how wind turbines are controlled.

During the programme, you also gain knowledge about embedded systems and about computers and programming, and you learn about signal processing, instrumentation, automation and about mechatronics and robots. In addition to knowledge about how to develop systems, you also learn how to test and validate systems to ensure that they work as intended.

Students working

With a Bachelor's degree in Applied Industrial Electronics you can go on for an MSc in Engineering. As an engineer, you can work in the process, automation, and energy industry where you can develop new converters and machines for wind turbines, work with energy and performance optimisation of industrial processes or with mechatronic systems for things like robots or wave energy systems.

During your training you will work closely with companies for your project work. The projects are based on the industry's current issues and are organised so that you and your project group are constantly challenged to think in innovative, creative and systematic ways in order to find new solutions.

The program in Applied Industrial Electronics is an English language programme that takes place in an international environment and is offered internationally. This means that in addition to your academic competencies you also develop your language skills. The international environment can also provide you with intercultural competences that will serve you well in your future career.

This is a full-time study programme, which is characterised by problem based project work. You will be working closely with other students most of the time, and you are required to be present at the university on a daily basis and spend a vast majority of your day there.

PROBLEM BASED LEARNING (PBL)

Aalborg University is famous for its problem based learning which means that you work in a team on a written assignment each semester - possibly in collaboration with an industrial partner. This study method is also called “The Aalborg Model for Problem Based Learning”. The method is highly recognised internationally; including by UNESCO.
The problem based project work at Aalborg University gives you the opportunity to acquire new knowledge and competencies at a high academic level in an independent way. You get to apply theory to practice when you work to solve real-life problems, which will ensure that you are well prepared for your future career.

TEAMWORK

When doing project work, you work closely in groups with other students who have roughly the same academic interests and ambitions as yourself. This gives you the opportunity to cooperate, share knowledge and to explore larger and more complex academic problems than you would have been able to do on your own. Furthermore, the groups serve a social purpose and make it easier for you to get to know your fellow students.

COLLABORATION WITH THE Industry

The Department of Energy Technology works closely with the industry; particularly some of the leading companies within the field of energy technology. This means that you have the possibility to work with some of the real-life issues and problems that companies and organisations face. This gives you the opportunity to enhance your academic competencies with an industry-oriented and practical angle.

YOUR TEACHER is a RESEARCHer

At the Department of Energy Technology teaching is research based. This means that your lecturers are doing research within the same academic fields that they teach. Therefore, you have access to the latest knowledge and dedicated and passionate teachers. The teaching material not only includes books but may also consist of, for example, current academic articles from journals.
