024 BSc Electronics, bachelor



Target Group and Admission Requirements

General admission requirements + Physics I and mathematics R1 + R2, or pre-course, or 2-year technical trade school.

Aim of the Programme

You will receive a broad introduction to electro-technical- and electronic theory for use in central topics such as electronic measurement, power regulation and electronic controls, programming and the construction of computer systems, communication- and consumer-electronics. Digital techniques and the use of programmable electronics are a vital part of the programme. Through working on projects, you will become familiar with problem-solving and structured working methods. You will also learn to use information technology and electronic systems to solve industrial problems.

You may also choose a specialisation in ICT or Economics and Administration.

Further Education opportunities

You may seek admission to the 2-year Master’s programme (civil-engineer programme) Systems and Control Engineering at Telemark University College or Master`s programmes at other university colleges and universities in Norway or abroad.

EL5506 Project EL5 in the 5th semester, and PRH606 Main Project in the 6th semester, may be replaced by FB5106 Student Business Venture.

FBV5006 Mathematics III is recommended for students who wish to study for a Master’s degree in technical subjects.

It is possible to apply to have other courses approved as replacements for elective courses at Telemark University College and other institutions of education.


Teaching and Learning Methods

The Bachelor’s degree programmes at the Faculty of Technology are project-oriented, that is, many of the courses are conducted as projects. This pedagogical method provides students with greater responsibility for their own learning as well as experience with problem analysis, seeking information and problem solving. Work is done in groups, often in close cooperation with local businesses. The group produces a project report which is submitted, presented and defended in an oral examination. Most subjects are taken over one semester and include continuous assessment and final assessment and examinations.

Students will be offered an opportunity to study abroad during the programme. Telemark University College has exchange agreements with colleges and universities in Belgium, England, France, Italy, China, Nepal, Portugal, Sri-Lanka, Spain, Germany and the USA.

Students who have a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering are qualified to apply directly for enrolment on the Master’s degree programme at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, if certain requirements are met.

Minor adjustments may occur during the academic year, subject to the decision of the Dean
