Electrical Engineering - Physics - master

Electrical Engineering is a discipline of the Master's degree programme in physics.
Electrical engineering provides solutions to the ever-increasing advanced technological demands of modern society. Technology and industry is rapidly developing. Electrical engineering education and competence is at the core of this transition, and will provide a solid foundation for employment in several growth industries. Sensors are essential, for example in medicine and biological research, for new materials, and for oil and gas. This requires knowledge about optics, nanotechnology, transducers, and imaging techniques. In society, there is a virtual explosion of data from websites, images, speech, genes, etc., requiring innovative data analysis based on machine learning, pattern recognition, statistics, and signal- and image analysis implemented in scalable computer programs.

The Electrical Engineering discipline offers specialization in five different fields of research:
• Optics
• Nanoscopy
• Microwave techniques
• Ultrasound
• Machine learning
In Tromsø, electrical engineering education is based on a strong research group covering all these fields. There are good facilities for laboratory work with modern equipment.
