Since the academic year 2018/2019, the Faculty of Electrical, Electronic, Computer and Control Engineering of Lodz University of Technology has been offering admission to the first-cycle degree program in Electrical Engineering taught in English.
The aim of launching and running this program is to improve the quality of education and competencies of future engineers. This will be achieved through internationalization activities, e.g:
In the process of education, some classes will be taught with the application of modern teaching methods, such as Design Thinking or Problem Based Learning. By means of studies taught in English with the participation of international lecturers and students, the language skills of future engineers, so desirable in the job market, will be improved. Each student enrolled on the program will gain practical experience during a broad range of laboratory and project activities, with particular emphasis on online data transmission and acquisition techniques, which in the future will allow them to perform their professional tasks.
Graduates with a degree in Electrical Engineering can independently configure their workstation to work in a computer network and use computer and office systems packages. They are able to produce electronic versions of technological documentation. They understand the structure, principles of operation, and operation of power plants and power grids, electrical and power-electronic equipment, electrical machines and drives, automation, security and metrology systems. Graduates are prepared to work in production plants, including professional power engineering and design units of electrotechnical and related industries. They are prepared to pursue second-cycle degree programs.
Graduates who have completed an Electrical Engineering degree program taught in English are able to apply the acquired knowledge in practice, communicate with the environment in the workplace, actively participate in group work, including managing subordinate staff. They have the knowledge to start a business, they understand the underlying legal and economic problems. The graduate has a command of a foreign language at the B2 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages and the ability to use elementary professional terminology.
