Electrical Engineering - Power Systems

BSc: 3 years ( 180 ECTS units )

Electrical engineering allows us to develop equipment and systems that process information, communicate and interact with other humans and the environment. The development of smart sensors and nanotechnology microchips, video-game consoles, mobile phones, laptops, social networking and wireless technologies or even drones and robotics for space exploration, are just some example of how electrical engineering is helping s us connect the world.

With the BSc in Electrical and Computer Engineering, ISEP trains engineers to work with computers, robotics and telecommunications. The course has a strong practical component and provides a dynamic learning method. Students develop knowledge in science and explore emerging trends in electronic circuits, network technologies, automation and digital systems.

In order to prepare graduates for a quick professional integration, students are challenged to develop their final project in companies or research groups. Recently, ISEP students conducted projects on underwater vehicles, control systems for submarines and robots, stratospheric probes, artificial vision, car navigation, remote control of dams, among other examples.

Postgraduate Studies

Graduate students can continue their specialization with the MSc in Electrical and Computer Engineering .
