Why study Electrical Engineering?
Bachelor studies in Electrical Engineering opens a broad range of possibilities for a future career. The industry in Kongsberg region has a continuing need for new engineers with knowledge in the areas of cybernetics, mechatronics and signal processing.
Cybernetics and Mechatronics
Specializing in Cybernetics and Mechatronics focus is on the design of electronic circuits, PCB design, EMC issues, sensors and actuators and their behavior and characteristics, in addition to a module on advanced control systems.
Specializing in Signal processing focus is on various methods and algorithms used in signal analysis and signal processing. You learn using simulation and real-time processing using microcontrollers, DSP and FPGA.
What you will learn
Students enrolled in our Electrical Engineering program will learn how to develop and design analog and digital electronics, control systems, communication systems, how to program microcontrollers and to create an interface towards the physical world.
