About the programme
Are you interested in digital electronics, telecommunication, mobile telephones, transmission, satellites digitalisation, the design of communication systems, programming, bio-electronics, operative systems, signal processing and everything else that has to do with electronics and computers?
Then you may be interested in the Bachelor of Electronics and Computer Engineering. The programme starts September and February.
The goal of the Electronics and Computer Engineering programme is to develop and qualify you in essential engineering competences.
During the programme
During the programme, you will learn to
cooperate with others, formulate problems and plan your time. You
will gain experience in comparing theory, simulation and practice,
and finally you will be trained to present and document results in
written reports and oral presentations. Generally speaking, the
Electronics and Computer Engineering course involves electronics and
data technology, and the course provides you with application and
development skills in data technology, electronics construction,
equipment construction and telecommunication as well as organisation
and technology assessment.
After graduation, you will have competence in covering the entire area from development, implementation and operation to consultation, instruction and service in relation to electronic systems, products and plants as well as skills in project work, project management and implementation.
The Electronics and Computer Engineering programme takes 3½ years, including a six-month traineeship at a Danish company. The compulsory courses are placed from the first to the fourth semester.
|1st & 2nd semester||Basic introduction and project work|
3rd & 4th semester
|Digital signal processing, circuit analysis, analogue electronics, electromagnetism ect. and project work|
|5th, 6th and 7th semester||Specialization, Traineeship and Final Project|
1st & 2nd semester
In the first two semesters you will be given basic introduction to scientific subjects that are important for engineers. These include mathematics and signal processing, but in the first year you will also become proficient in the world of digital electronics and computer programming through courses in hardware and software.
3rd & 4th semester
In the third and fourth semester, courses are concentrated on digital signal processing, circuit analysis, analogue electronics and electromagnetism. You will also be introduced to a number of basic concepts that are fundamental to the field of electronics and computer engineers.
In all four semesters, you will carry out a project in connection with one of the subjects. In the first semester a software project, in the second semester a combined software and hardware project. In the third semester, the project work is concentrated on circuit analysis and analogue electronics, while a major part of the fourth semester is centred on an interdisciplinary project and a theme about robots and robot technology.
Specialization from 5th semester
For Electronics and Computer Engineering students, specialization begins in the fifth semester. You will be able to specialise within the broad field of electronics and computer engineering, and you can choose the subject that interests and engages you the most.
Specialization is through a range of elective courses, traineeship in a company and through your final project.
You can decide whether you want to take your traineeship period in the sixth or seventh semester. The Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, however, usually recommends that you take it in the seventh semester in combination with your final project.
This will enable you to choose those elective courses in the sixth semester that are relevant for your final project and traineeship. If the trainee period is taken in the sixth semester, it is usually a traineeship abroad where it is more difficult for the student to get the necessary instruction from his or her teacher during the process.
The traineeship is an important element in training as an engineer. It gives you an opportunity to combine the theoretical skills you have acquired in the previous years with the practical work of an engineer in a company.
In the seventh semester of the Electronics and Computer Engineering course, you will prepare your final project. That is the conclusion to your education and provides you with an opportunity to design your own unique profile as an engineer.
In the final project, you are to solve a set of engineering problems within the subject area and apply the skills you have acquired during the course. In short, you formulate the problem and assess and apply the methods and scientific tools relevant to solving the problem.
You obtain a speciality designation if your final project and a certain number of elective courses are in:
- Telecommunication or
- Data technology
Electronics and computer engineers find jobs in broad and, most often, advanced disciplines. They solve engineering problems in many different industries and often bridge the gap between various disciplines.
Development of ACT
Electronics and computer engineers participate in the development of mobile phones, transmission equipment and receivers, radio and television sets, the design of communication systems and, generally, find work in the computer, communication and electronics industry. They are central in the development of advanced measuring equipment in hospitals, in the operation and development of television stations, when rockets and satellites are launched into space and when transmission masts are built for all sorts of communications. Electronics and computer engineers develop systems for signal monitoring and take part in the development of ATC for the improvement of railway safety.
The IT area
A new discipline for electronics and computer engineers is the entire IT area. Thanks to their experience and know-how in programming, networks, data and telecommunication, automation, information management and presentation as well as their knowledge in the fields of organisation and technology assessment, they possess some of the qualifications that are in high demand on the growing IT labour market.
