Aims

Graduate university study in Electrical Engineering enables students to acquire highly specialist knowledge in the field and to be trained to perform the most complex engineering tasks based on the scientific approach to problem-solving. New specialist knowledge is acquired in electrical engineering, and students are able to apply that knowledge; the same is true for other specialist knowledge in engineering, mathematics, and computer engineering. Students gain the ability to engage in continuing education and professional development, the ability to carry out independent research, to discover new knowledge, to prepare and conduct experiments, and to interpret data. The study enables the acquisition of knowledge and competencies needed for designing new systems, components, or processes, and to act effectively in the role of a team leader. The study programme is similar to those at higher education institutions abroad, but meeting the specific demands of the community and region in which the University of Rijeka Faculty of Engineering operates. The study programme incorporates recommendations from the Bologna Declaration that refer to programme quality assurance, mobility, and diploma recognition.

This study programme enables specialisation in one of the following areas:

  • Automation
  • Power Engineering

Learning outcomes

Scientific approach – electrical engineering

  • Apply specialist knowledge based on the scientific approach in the field of mechanical engineering for solving engineering problems
  • Critically assess and discuss specific engineering problems
  • Develop new solutions for set engineering problems through independent research in the field of electrical engineering

Specialist competencies – electrical engineering

  • Evaluate conceptual solutions for designing technical systems
  • Evaluate conceptual solutions for designing technical processes
  • Critically asses the influence of characteristic parameters on the results of procedures and/or processes in the field of electrical engineering

Contribution to development – electrical engineering

  • Recommend an approach for improving technical systems in the field of electrical engineering
  • Recommend an approach for improving technical processes in the field of electrical engineering
  • Manage technical systems/procedures/processes

Soft skills

  • Assume ethical responsibility during task execution
  • Communicate appropriately to the business environment, negotiate, and present functional parts

Length of study

2 years

Academic title

Upon completion of the study, the following academic title is awarded: Master of Electrical Engineering (mag. ing. el.).
