The objectives of the Master's Degree in Electronic Engineering (MEE) aim to train masters with a profile characterized by a broad spectrum of knowledge and the ability to understand and design electronic systems for various applications (communication, control, computer science, energy, etc.). As a course at Instituto Superior Técnico, it also develops in students the capacity for rigorous analysis, critical thinking, and innovation, which are important contributions to a wide range of activities and sectors in society.
Electronics is responsible for most of the technological advances in key areas of engineering, such as telecommunications, computer systems, embedded systems and mobile devices, robotics and autonomous systems, etc. It is also essential in many scientific domains, such as physics, chemistry, aerospace, mechanics, and biomedical sciences.
The Master's Degree in Electronic Engineering (MEE) is designed to deepen the teaching of techniques and technologies for the realization of electronic systems, focusing on areas such as integrated electronic systems, programmable and embedded systems or digital signal processing, as well as power electronics and sensors. However, the flexibility adopted in the current curriculum allows for the choice of various disciplines from other engineering courses at Instituto Superior Técnico (Alameda or Taguspark), according to the interests of the student, as well as the possibility of participating in mobility programs (e.g. ERASMUS).
The current MEE course was accredited by A3ES in May 2021, with the following highlight in the final report:
"Overall, it seems to us to be an excellent study plan, achieving the objectives of the study cycle by providing a solid, configurable technical specialization, which is complemented by good additional training, aimed at a useful and effective integration into the labor market, made up of the productive fabric or employing institutions."
