Master's Degree Program

Content

Bachelor’s degree, completed! So where to next? Practical application of that knowledge? Or a master’s degree? It needn’t be either/or – with us, you can do both! Get the best of both worlds in our Master Program: “Advanced Electrical Systems and Structures” of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering within the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, reorganized together with the company Robert Bosch Romania, the Cluj Engineering Center. The master’s degree program represents an adequate framework for master’s degree specialisation studies in accordance with the current requirements of power electronics and of electromechanical systems with applications in a fast-growing field in Romania, namely the automotive industry. What’s more, expert guidance and financial support are part of the package.

 

Objectives of the Master’s Degree

Against the background of electrical engineering and of the related specialties, the main objectives of the master’s degree are the following:

  • Training and improving specialists in the area of power electronics and of electromechanical systems with applications in the automotive industry.
  • Increasing the attractiveness of master’s degree programs for the bachelor’s degrees in engineering sciences, as well as in other areas.
  • Drawing up applied projects within traineeships
  • Developing professional and transversal skills ad competences which are relevant and of high quality, emphasizing learning results, to boost employability and to foster innovation and active citizenship.

Benefits of the master’s degree program:

Excellence scholarships

Bosch provides a maximum number of 10 excellence scholarships. They will be provided following an interview organized at the start of each study year.

Practice in the modern laboratories

The traineeships shall be held, in each semester, at the Bosch Engineering Centre, in Jucu. Here you have the possibility to work in the state-of-the-art laboratories, together with a young, professional team.

Possibility for employment

Those who take part in the Master’s degree program have the possibility to take summer jobs and thus to build up considerable experience before completing the studies.

Drawing up of thesis

In the final semester, you will have the possibility to carry out scientific research in our research laboratories, for the drafting of the thesis.

Further benefits

The program’s benefits also include a curriculum adjusted to the current market requirements, the drawing up of applied projects within the traineeship, and the development of engineering-specific skills, as well as project work and team work.
