Master of Science in Electrical Engineering by Research

The M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering by research can be followed in full-time program over 3 semesters (normally including the summer semester) or part-time mode spreading over 6-semesters (normally excluding the summer semester). The full-time and part-time degree program is based on a research project proposed by the student and 2 study units introducing ‘Research methods’, and a ‘Research seminar’ in which students reading for this degree present their work to the Faculty.

Typical Subject areas for Research based Degrees (Masters by Research and Ph.D.) in Electrical Engineering:

  • Signal, Image and Biomedical Signal Processing
  • Adaptive and Intelligent Control
  • Spatio-temporal System Modelling
  • Sensorless Control of A.C. Machines
  • Electric Transporation Technology
  • Wind, P.V. Grid connected systems and their Grid Integration
  • Human-machine interface design, analysis and evaluation
  • Aircraft flight trajectory prediction/management, autonomous navigation systems
  • Analogue/digital signal processing
 
Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering by Research

The M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering by research can be followed on full-time program over 3 semesters (normally including the summer semester) or part-time mode spreading over 6-semesters (normally excluding the summer semester). The full-time and part-time degree program is based on a research project proposed by the student and 2 study units introducing ‘Research methods’, and a ‘Research seminar’ in which students reading for this degree present their work to the Faculty.

Typical Subject areas for Research based Degrees (Masters by Research and Ph.D.) in Mechanical Engineering:

  • Application of FEA (Finite Element Analysis) for structural stress analysis of conventional and composite materials, weld induced residual stresses and distortion, fatigue assessment
  • Aerodynamic analysis and testing of wind turbine components
  • Solar energy, solar desalination and thermodynamic processes (e.g. heat engines)
  • Applied Mechanics & Biomechanics
