Virtually all electronics today contain power electronics and embedded systems in one form or another, and this trend is on the rise, with future products and production becoming increasingly intelligent and energy-efficient. This means that more and more electronics are based on power electronics, embedded systems, and control technology. There is therefore a demand for electronic engineers with expertise in these fields.

You will be educated in three disciplines:

• Power electronics
The world’s collective energy consumption is soaring, which has led to an increased focus on the need to convert energy production from the use of fossil fuels to renewable energy – for example in the form of solar and wind energy. Power electronics is the key to new sustainable energy solutions.

• Embedded systems
Embedded systems are found in nearly all electronic equipment and smart solutions. To add to future product and service intelligence, electronic systems are also embedded.
Embedded systems are found everywhere, and are used in all market sectors such as energy, medicine, environment, agriculture, communication, entertainment, textiles, transport, logistics, chemistry, food, and materials.

• Integrated application
In order to integrate the use of power electronics and embedded systems, it is necessary to design a unique control system for each device.
This integrated application of power electronics and function control in the form of embedded systems is a prerequisite for the development and optimisation of a sustainable future with intelligent products.

Career Opportunities
Since power electronics and embedded systems play a central role in the energy development of the products and services of the future, this degree offers many career possibilities in many different areas – both in Denmark and abroad.

Examples of jobs you can do with an MSc in Engineering - Electronics:
• Project leader of development projects
• Research and development engineer
• Technical manager
• Consultant
• Entrepreneur

You will need a Bachelor’s degree in Electronics, Electrical Engineering, Robot Systems, or Physics and Technology.

Other applicants with a similar Bachelor’s degree will be considered if their academic qualifications correspond with the Bachelor degree mentioned above and may be accepted based on an individual assessment.
