Bachelor of Electrical and Electronic Engineering | HAN UNIVERSITY

In this Bachelors course, you will design, build and test intelligent systems and smart devices, specializing in 1 of 2 fields: A. Industrial and Power Systems.  B. Embedded Systems.

The Bachelors course in Electrical and Electronic Engineering will give you the innovative edge that sets you apart from the rest. This course attracts motivated goal-oriented students like you from all over the world. Our course gives you the theoretical and practical expertise needed for success, as well as the necessary market information and insight to stay on top.

Our lecturers have worked as researchers and for commercial enterprises. Some are still working in the industry in addition to teaching, which ensures that you learn the most up-to-date information and techniques.

Electrical engineers are in high demand and have many opportunities on the job market. Our graduates work in many international companies. Later in your career, you can work as a specialist, consultant or project manager.  You can also choose to continue your studies at HAN with a Masters course in “Control Systems Engineering”.


Starting date: September 2019

You can apply until: August 15, 2019

Degree title: Bachelor of Science

Program intensity: Full Time

Program duration: 4 years

Language: English

Program location: Arnhem

Tuition fee per year: € 2.060

In your 1st year, you will get a solid foundation in the broad field of electrical engineering. You will learn about fundamental theories and apply your new knowledge in small group projects related to problems from the field.

After your 1st semester, you will also be able to choose 1 of 2 areas of focus:  

- Industrial and Power Systems.

You will learn about topics such as power electronics, control systems engineering, sensors, electric drives, operating systems and sustainable electric energy supplies. You will learn to design smart solutions for industrial automation (e.g. machine building and process technology) and for motion control (e.g. for surgical robots or baggage handling). You will also learn how electricity is generated, transported and distributed.

-  Embedded Systems

The focus is on digital technology and microcontrollers.

You will design, build and test intelligent systems and smart devices. Embedded Systems is all about combining hardware, software and technology. You will learn how to make these technologies better, safer and more user-friendly. To do this, you will learn to program in C and C++, to do digital design with VHDL, to program microcontrollers and configure FPGAs, and to master other crucial skills in this diverse field.

Starting from your 1st year, you will work in teams with students from other engineering domains, such as mechanical engineering and industrial design. You will work on real projects, which will give you the practical skills you will need in your future profession.

In your 1st semester, you will gain basic knowledge related to electrical and electronic engineering. Subjects include: Network basics, Programming C, Math, Logic circuits, Introduction to electronics, Microcontrollers, Professional skills

In your 2nd semester, you will delve deeper into your area of focus: Industrial and Power Systems: Together with a group, you will work on a sustainable energy project. The group will develop a prototype of an electrical power system. You will increase your electrical engineering knowledge by studying topics such as electrical machinery and basic electronics.

Embedded Systems:  Together with your project group, you will develop an embedded system that uses sensors to communicate with the internet and its environment. You will learn the basics of object-oriented programming and deepen your knowledge of electronics.

In the 2nd, 3rd and 4th years, your lecturers challenge you to work more independently. You take part in group and individual projects on current issues in electrical engineering. You also design experiments and tests, engineer solutions, organize activities, draw conclusions and present your results just as a professional engineer would.

Subjects in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th years

- Industrial and Power Systems:    

Energy transport - Generation of sustainable energy - Motors and drives – Physics - Control systems - PLC-programming- System modeling - Digital signal processing - Power electronics - Work placement (1 semester) - Minor (1 semester) - Graduation project (1 semester).             

- Digital system design:

Control systems - Object oriented programming – Interfacing - Operating systems - Data communication - Digital signal processing – Databases - Internet of things - Work placement (1 semester) - Minor (1 semester) - Graduation project (1 semester).

Work placement

During your 3rd year, you will complete a 6-month work placement at a research institute or company.

During your 4th year, you will complete a 6-month program of your choice, known as the minor.  You can choose a minor at HAN or take it as an exchange course at another university, in the Netherlands or abroad.

You will also complete a 6-month graduation assignment for a company during your 4th year.  This real-life assignment will prove that you can work independently and possess the knowledge to produce a satisfying result. You will be guided throughout your assignment by a company coach and a HAN lecturer, but you will work independently.

Four-year track

All courses and examinations will be in English, so you need a good command of spoken and written English.

The level required for admission should be an equivalent of the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) score of 6.0 or higher, or TOEFL iBT score of 80 or higher, or diploma’s such as:

Cambridge Advanced (CAE) Grade C (180 - 184)

Cambridge Proficiency (CPE)

Greek high school diploma (Apolytirio Genikou Lykeio), with a general grade of at least 16 and a grade of at least 17 for the subjects: Mathematics & Physics.

The application procedure also includes a course selection check. This check helps you choose the right course, which increases your chances of study success. The course selection check consists of a (Skype) call resulting in a recommendation from HAN.

In general it will be your own responsibility to find accommodation. Rental prices for a student room vary from €300 to €500 per calendar month. However, you will most commonly find rooms to rent for around € 400. Make sure you book a room in time (preferably in the early spring), so you have the best chances to find the room that suits your wishes. Unfurnished rooms can be cheaper to rent than furnished ones.

Greek (EU) students do not have a guaranteed room on campus, but can contact the HAN Housing Office by email for a place on the campus Housing waiting list.

For more information and assistance in finding your right housing, please contact us on info@studyinholland.gr

As a HAN Electrical and Electronic Engineering graduate, you will have diverse, marketable skills. You will be highly attractive to a wide range of employers.

Electrical engineers can choose from many employers in both the commercial and public sectors all over the world. Our graduates work for many international companies, in positions like: Embedded software/hardware developer, Industrial automation developer, Power engineer etc.

With a Bachelors diploma from HAN University of Applied Sciences, you can continue doing a Master’s program at a Research University. If you want to do this abroad, you can usually start straightaway. If you have done your minor at a research university in the Netherlands during the third year of your studies at the HAN University of Applied Sciences, you can get direct access to a Master’s program at a research university in the Netherlands as well. If not, Dutch research universities offer bridging program to prepare HAN Bachelors students for a Masters course.  You can also immediately enroll in the HAN “Master of Control Systems Engineering” course after graduation!
