This programme of study is also offered on a full-time basis. Please consult the Registrar's website for more information pertaining to courses offered by the University.

The degree will provide you with an understanding of the fundamental principles of electrical, electronic and control engineering. Throughout the degree course, you are given the mathematical skills required for engineering design and analysis. You are taught how to design and build smarter, and more sustainable technologies, making them more efficient, reliable and affordable with the aim to contribute to society by improving the quality of life especially related to health, comfort and our environment. Self-driving electric cars are but one example of what you can achieve as a future Electrical and Electronics Engineers. This profession is at the heart of clean energy production, distribution and usage, sustainable and smart transport, electrification of transport, space technology, bio-medical technology, automation, robotics, autonomous drones, satellite systems, ship navigation, communications, the list is endless. This explains why the demand for Electrical and Electronic Engineers in Malta and worldwide is high and perpetually increasing.

This EEE programme is designed to provide comprehensive undergraduate training in a broad range of disciplines required to practice as a professional engineer. The programme provides substantial opportunity for practical work that is well balanced with theoretical instruction and lecturing. As a graduate, you will:

• Be able to demonstrate subject knowledge and understanding through standard methods of assessment, namely an end-of-study-unit examination and continuous assessment (as will be demonstrated in a team project and final year project).
• Explain the concepts and fundamental theories and scientific principles of EEE.
• Have knowledge of mathematical principles necessary for the application of engineering science.
• Possess an Intellectual inclination in using EEE science, mathematics and computational methods to analyse engineering problems.
• Have practical skills in adopting a systematic approach towards experimental investigation and analysis of results, while also be capable of using computational tools to design, analyse, simulate, test and build engineering solutions.
• Have general transferable skills in working with technical uncertainty, adapting to current and future emerging technologies, self-development through continuous lifelong learning, and be able to communicate and work effectively within a team by taking various roles.
If you wish to pursue an engineering profession in electrical and electronic engineering this degree is intended for you. It will provide you with opportunities to learn about the design and operation of electrical and electronic engineering systems, the hardware and software used, and the steps required to combine these into complete systems. The degree also enables you to develop knowledge in areas such as:

• electronics design
• sensing technology
• computing
• simulation of complex systems
• automation
• power engineering
• building services
• power electronics and energy conversion.
• communications
• industrial plants and robotics
• plant management
• infrastructural project design
• management and industrial R&D
Students who wish to participate in an ERASMUS exchange are encouraged to do so during the first or second semester of the third year of the course.
