  • Knowledge, abilities and skills to be acquired

    Knowledge, abilities and skills to be acquired

    A degree in Engineering Science - Electrical Engineering aims to develop the competence of students to the profession of an Electrical Engineer, including the ability to design telecommunication networks, electricity networks and facilities, and to develop new projects in telecommunications, traditional energy, electronics and automation. These objectives are met through a set of courses that provide strong training in basic mathematics and physics, together with a diverse and profound background in all areas relevant to modern Electrical Engineering (Electrical Circuits, Electronics, processing signals, telecommunications and data communications, electrical machinery, electrical installations, automatic control). The success in meeting these objectives can be measured by the fact that the graduates, from Electrical Engineering, generally find employment in companies in this field.
  • Objectives


    This course of study mainly aims at providing a basic training in electronic engineering, as well as in the areas of Mathematics, Physics and Computation, that are essential to professional practice based in this area of knowledge as well as the continuation of training in a course of 2nd cycle in this area of engineering sciences. Thus, the conclusion of this course of study should enable the student to continue to attend a 2nd cycle (Masters) in Electronical Engineering, enter the workforce or advance in its career. The aim is not to provide such training only to students who have completed secondary education in Portugal but also to students coming from Portuguese speaking countries and others who already have a career but who wish to complement their studies. Other secondary objective of the course is to contribute to the advancement of knowledge in this area in Portugal and in all Portuguese speaking countries.

  • Career Opportunities

    Career Opportunities

    The graduates in Electrical Engineering, from the Lusófona University, are fully able to develop a broad range of activities, namely: research and development, planning, project management and coordination, design and maintenance of electrical and electronic equipment. Many find positions in teaching institutions, research laboratories, electrical and electronic industries, public service, construction companies, power production and distribution companies, telecommunications companies, consulting firms (in both financial and technological domains). In fact, they act in many fields, such as the foundational domains of Electrical Engineering, like analog and digital electronics, electrical machines, power production and transport, automation and control, robotics, signal processing, telecommunications. Moreover, given their solid scientific background, in both Physics and Mathematics, they able to tackle problems in operations research, project management and data science.
  • Future Studies

    Future Studies

    The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering enables the enrollment for a Masters Degree (2nd cycle) in the area of Engineering and Natural Sciences, not necessarily in the main area of the undergraduate training.
  • Infrastructure and Equipment

    Infrastructure and Equipment

    The classrooms for lectures and exercises¿ classes are fully equipped with whiteboards and projection equipment. Moreover, given the strong application component of the degree, several fully equipped laboratories are available, that allow the realization of laboratorial classes, projects, and research activities. Namely, the following laboratories are available: Physics Laboratory, that supports the curricular units on Physics and Electromagnetics; Electronics Laboratory, that supports most of the curricular units of the common branch; Automation and Robotics Laboratory, that supports the curricular units on Automation and Robotics, as well as the ¿flame extinguisher robot¿ competition; Electrical Machines Laboratory, that supports the curricular units of the Energy and Power branch of the degree, namely Electrical Machines, Electrical Power Systems and Electrical Design; Networks and Telecommunications Laboratory, that supports the curricular units of Foundations of Telecommunications, Telecommunications Systems, Data and Network Communications and Operating Systems;
  • Research


    The professors of the programme engage in research and development activities, in the areas of Robotics and Automation, Artificial Intelligence, Power Systems and Applications, Telecommunications and Electromagnetics. There are also opportunities, for the students, to participate in the research work under development.
  • Observations


    The development of active policy of student integration in the job market is one of the objectives of this programme. Hence, in spite of the existing collaboration protocols, that aim at providing our students with internships and training in public and private institutions, our programme also develops punctual agreements in order to facilitate our students¿ future integration in the job market.
