MSc Microelectronics

Specialization courses

In the specialization space, students have to select courses totalling to at least 24 EC. In essence, all of the MSc EE and MSc CE courses can be chosen as a specialization course, including those from the main core and the track core that were not yet chosen.

The tracks in EE typically have an informal sub-structure called specialization profiles. A profile is a more or less canned study path. It typically prepares for a thesis subject in a certain area and typically with a specific professor or small set of professors of one section, overseeing that research area. 

For the purposes of composing an IEP, a profile presents a short list of coherent courses (in all tiers) that together leads to a coherent program of study that prepare for a thesis topic in the area of the profile. As such, a profile can specify (at most) two from three courses in the common core, two from three courses in the track core, and at most 12 EC of additional specialization courses.

Note, however, that profiles are nothing more than convenient selections of courses that go well together, and do not imply any formal restriction whatsoever. Based on individual interest and subject to approval of the IEP by the (tentative) thesis supervisor and the MSc coordinator and the responsible professor, a much wider variety of programs is possible.
