The program for Electrical and Electronic Engineering is based on industry needs. You get all the latest theories. And equally important: you put it into practice. From the very start of the program. So when you graduate you’re an engineer with the right experience.
Electrical and Electronic Engineering in a nutshell
Electrical and Electronic Engineering trains you to become an electrical engineer. You get all the fundamental theories. At the same time you put them into practice in projects. Real-life electrical engineering projects that solve actual issues in the professional field.
Throughout your studies, you work with your classmates in project teams. You also get the chance to work with professionals from the field. Your focus in this course is industrial systems and power systems.
Inside view of Electrical and Electronic Engineering: Meet lecturers & students
Get an inside view of the Electrical and Electronic Engineering program at HAN. Become a student for a day, join a sample lecture or meet 1:1 with a lecturer or student online. We are currently offering the following activities:
Subjects in your 1st year include Electrical Circuits, Electromagnetism, Electronics and Microcontrollers. You also dive into fascinating projects, like developing your own measuring equipment or developing an autonomous vehicle.
Subjects in 1st year
When you just start studying, performing real work tasks might feel like something that’s in the distant future - but it’s not! Starting from year 1, you’ll frequently be in the labs to work on practical assignments.
Studying from textbooks all the time? Forget about that. You work on fascinating projects, such as self-driving vehicles and devices used in healthcare. You start working on these projects as early as year 1. That way, you master the basics from the beginning. Practice makes perfect!
The academic year runs from September to August. In that time you have 42 weeks of education. The rest of the time you have holidays.
Coaching and support
Are you missing home? Are your classes too challenging? Want advice about your internship? Your study coach is there to help you with such issues. Or you can discuss them with your learning team. This is a group of 6-8 Electrical and Electronic Engineering students, supported by a learning team coach (teacher). The team meets at set times throughout the year.
HAN uses the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). This system is part of the bachelor-master structure. ECTS credits are a measure of the workload of a degree program.
TO THE 2ND YEAR? CHECK YOUR STUDY ADVICE!
At the end of 1st year, you receive study advice. The credits you’ve earned are an important factor in this. Positive advice means you can move on to the 2nd year. Negative advice means you have to stop. That way you don’t waste time on a program that doesn't really suit you.
In the 2nd year of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, you start working more independently. Subjects include Control Systems, Data Communication and Electronics. You continue with your specialization. And you work on innovative team projects.
Subjects in 2nd year
Get a list of the subjects you'll follow in the 2nd year.
Working on real company projects
Working on real company projects is the best way to discover your strengths and improve your skills. Together with your fellow students, you work on a company project 3 days a week.
For example, you could be working on a:
- Bicycle Simulator
- Small Hydrogen Vehicle
- Self-driving trolley
- Baby Patient Simulator
- Activating Parkinson Patients with sensoring
Professional engineering experience
In your 3rd year you take a big step towards becoming a professional electrical engineer. Specialize further by working on innovative projects. Like Parallel Robot Design or IoT-enabled Fitness Environment. Also, do an electrical engineering internship at a research institute or company.
Subjects in 3rd year
Here's a list of subjects for the 3rd year.
Your Electrical Engineering internship gets you ready for the international job market. Where you go? That depends on your specialization. You could go to TenneT. That’s one of Europe’s top 5 electricity transmission operators. Or you could go to Prodrive. That’s an electronic and mechatronic solutions firm. Before you start your internship, you get a thorough preparation program.
Experience it for yourself!
Want to discover whether Electrical and Electronic Engineering at HAN is the right choice for you? Experience it for yourself at an Open Day. Our students and staff look forward to meeting you there!
Throughout your studies you work on real-life research projects. The projects are for companies and organizations in the energy sector. How’s that possible? Your program is linked to HAN’s research center SEECE. SEECE develops and shares knowledge about innovations in electrical energy. Your role? To work on electrical engineering projects alongside lecturers and researchers. For example, on topics like solar power and wind energy.
This is the 4th and final year of your Electrical and Electronic Engineering degree. First, you choose your minor. This allows you to broaden your knowledge. Or to gain more in-depth knowledge of a subject you’re interested in. Second, you choose your graduation assignment. This is where you research an issue for a company or organization.
HAN offers great minors for Electrical and Electronic Engineering students. For example, you can sign up for Embedded Vision Design or Power Minor. Or what about broadening your experiences even further? You could study at another university, for example. Or even go abroad. Perhaps you want to continue with the Master in Engineering Systems. Then a pre-master program is a smart option for your minor.
Your final challenge in Electrical and Electronic Engineering: the graduation assignment. Here you research an issue for a company or organization. Which company? That could be a large international firm, like Océ (part of Canon). Or Liander, the largest grid operator in the Netherlands. Or a smaller, innovative company in the region. Your research results will help solve an issue they are facing.
Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Electronic Engineering
After 4 years of study you have earned your Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. Congratulations! The program you've completed is accredited by the Accreditation Organization of the Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO). That means you now have an internationally recognized degree. Ready to join an international company? Or further your studies with a master?
