Department of Applied Physics and Electronics

Our department has 120 staff members working with undergraduate education, postgraduate education and research within the subject areas of the faculty. In the framework of these main tasks we actively collaborate with businesses and organizations.

In the area of undergraduate education, our department offers courses within the Bachelor and Master programs of the faculty in building technology, energy technology, machine technology, electronics, and media technology, but we also offer courses in shorter education programs that lead to university degrees.
Altogether, our undergraduate programs engage approximately 800 full-time students, entailing roughly 25 % of the faculty’s entire work with undergraduate education.

Our postgraduate education and research has a focus on engineering and applications.

Postgraduate education and research is pursued in signal processing, automatic control engineering, medical technology, building technology, energy technology, and chemistry of thermal processes.

Cooperation with companies and organizations is substantial for these groups. This way researchers/teachers and postgraduate students at our department are important links in picking up relevant research topics and passing on new knowledge to the business world.
