Education

2nd cycle Component of Integrated Master in Electrical and Computer Engineering

Started in the academic year 2006/2007. The minimum number of credits for the degree is 120 (2 years). 

Objectives

Education in Electrical and Computer Engineering associate a rapid technological evolution to interdisciplinary growing (Electronics, Telecommunications, Energy, Industrial Control, Digital Systems, Integrated Manufacturing, Information Technology). Thus, Integrated Master aims to prepare students with skills in analysis, specification, project and products use and services in these areas.

These skills are based on the combination between basic and general scientific areas (Mathematics, Physics and Computing) scientific fields of Electrical and Computer Engineering and advanced technological trainee. So, students are well prepared possessing a relevant domain of technologies and computational tools suitable to the areas of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

Provided education includes theoretical and laboratory features developing the student's responsiveness to new situations through a process of continuous learning, strengthening the capacity of their autonomous learning.
