Achieve your full potential thanks to Saxion’s modern learning facilities
Interact with staff and students in an international learning environment
Electricity is everywhere and its applications are infinite. All electrical and electronic applications are designed, engineered, sold and maintained. Many people are working in this business and there are many jobs available at this moment. The 4 year course Electrical & Electronic Engineering at Saxion is the start of a great career in this field.
As a student you can choose during your course one of the two specialisations Electronic Information Engineering or Electrical Power and Automation. At this moment it is a good time to find a job in the electrical or electronic business area.
You can use the form below to get more information on the course, or you can e-mail mr. Jan Bollen directly: firstname.lastname@example.org or add him to your skype: jan.bollen.nl.
First basic skills will be taught, during lectures, workshops and also in projects. The focus is on technical as well as on social and communication subjects. Technical subjects that will be taught are analogue and digital hardware, design and engineering. Programming will also be part of the course. Hardware combined with software makes everything work! Social and communicative aspects are trained in presentations, interviews and much group work in projects. The projects concern small technical problems to be solved by a group of students.
Students not only learn a lot about the product they design but also about the multidisciplinary character of the design process. A project example is "measuring an analogue heartbeat and presenting it wireless to the other side of the country". The student acquires a wide range of technical knowledge and be able to communicate multidisciplinary. At least 2 semesters the student will work in company, developing his practical and professional skills.
The course content is adjusted to the requirements of the professional companies.
Our general entry requirements apply. Beside these, we require:
1. A high school degree including Mathematics & Physics.
There is an option for a Short Degree Programme. This is available for experienced students in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (3, 4 or 5 semesters, depending on your level of experience).
After completion of the course you can find work as a hardware/software designer/engineer, sales representative or quality engineer. Big well know companies, (Philips, Nokia, NXP, Shell, Eaton) have got many job opportunities. There are also a lot of small companies working in the electrical & electronic field. Further there a good prospects to continue for a master study in Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
Stef Gortemaker, student Electronical & Electrical Engineering builds network for amplifying electrical signals
"Right now I’m in the lesson Advanced Electronics, one of the general subjects in the second year of the Bachelor course Electrical Engineering.I’m testing and simulating a network and performing calculations. In this way I’m building a network on the computer which can amplify an electrical signal. Its application? I do not really know, but according to our teacher reinforcing electrical signals comes in very ‘handy’when you’re in hospital with various sensors on your body. These sensors will translate those signals in a way that the nursing staff knows what’s going on with you. This task requires a lot of mathematics, especially many calculations: quite difficult! This lesson will take 1,5 hours, and we’ll have to complete it within two weeks."
Dewant Katare, student Electronic & Electrical Engineering reads out information on breath analysis
"Although I'm sitting in the nanolab now, I’m not studying Nanotechnology, I’m studying for my bachelor in Electrical & Electronic Engineering. I’m using the nano-equipment for reading out the micro (Cantilever) sensors on a chip, which contains information on breath analysis."
Before starting your bachelor in Electrical & Electronic Engineering you are invited to participate in a Study Choice Check. Saxion refers to the study choice check as a compulsory intake for all applicants.
It is important to choose the degree programme which suits you best. The Study Choice Check is to examine the extent to which there is a match between you and the Electrical & Electronic Engineering degree programme.
You will receive an invitation at your private e-mail address to fill in a short questionnaire and to write an letter of motivation. The letter of motivation has to demonstrate your affinity with the electrical and electronic branche. The results of the assignments will be used to provide you with a personal advice.
You will be given (personal) advice from your Study Career Counsellor, which will take one of three forms:
A: There appears to be a good match.
B: There appears to be a sufficient match, but support and extra guidance are required.
C: There appears to be an insufficient match, we advise you to reconsider your application for this particular programme.
Please be aware that completing the Study Choice Check is compulsory (it is part of our admission requirements), but the type of advice (A, B or C) you receive has no influence on your admission. You will not be admitted to any degree programme without a complete study choice check. In addition, you must meet with the admission requirements and further admission conditions before you may participate in a Saxion degree programme.
