Entry requirements

In order to meet the general entry requirements for first cycle studies you must have successfully completed upper secondary education and documented skills in English language + Swedish upper secondary school courses Physics 2, Chemistry 1, Mathematics 4 (specifik entry A9). Or: Swedish upper secondary school courses Physics B, Chemistry A, Mathematics E (specifik entry 9)

More information about English language requirements


The selection is based on final school grades or Swedish Scholastic Aptitude Test.

Course Aim
The student will acquire knowledge of: I) The Master of Science Programme in Engineering Physics & Electrical Engineering at Luleå University of Technology and future working life, and II) useful tools for continued engineering studies. This is done through two blocks comprising: I) Engineering Physics & Electrical Engineering - the role of the subject in today's modern technological society. The relationship between technical physics & electrical engineering and the engineering sciences in both business and academia. The course introduces knowledge of gender equality, labor market and working life. II) Programming in Matlab.

After completing the course the student should:

- have insight into the field of engineering physics, especially in relation to other engineering disciplines and engineering science in general

- be able to solve simpler technical problems with typical engineering tools

- be able to write technical reports according to given instructions

- be able to plan, implement and present final results in simpler technology projects

- have insight into how to organize, plan and implement their own studies in both the short and long term for a successful career in the subject area of ​​physical physics

In addition, the student should:

- Know about current research areas and research issues at the Department of Engineering Sciences and Mathematics (TVM) and the Department of Systems and Space Engineering (SRT)

Engineering physics and electrical engineering as subject; history, their role in today's technology society nationally and internationally. Working life, labor market, gender equality. Engineering. The role of the engineer in research and business; problem solving, engineering tools. Project work. Research information / meeting with research groups at the Department of Engineering Sciences and Mathematics (TVM) and the Department of Systems and Space Engineering (SRT).

The course is conducted through lectures , laboratory sessions, and visits to companies and institutions within LTU.

The examination takes place continuously throughout the course in terms of both theoretical and practical tasks performed both individually and in groups. Assessment methods vary and are selected from the most commonly occurring in education in civil engineering : for example by written examination , laboratory and project work. The final grade is determined by the result of the written examination .

This course cannot be part of the degree together with course M0009T, D0015E or R0007R.
