Power Electronic Engineering - Study track of the Master degree programme in Electronics and Computer Engineering*

Our excellent training for the electrical engineering and electronics industry offers plenty of practical experience, state-of-the-art equipment, and close cooperation with industry. You will learn everything you need to know about power electronics, e-mobility, regenerative energies, and electric drives for a successful future career. Graduates of power electronic engineering are leaders in designing innovative solutions for the energy challenges of the future.

Key subject areas

More performance. Power converter.

Power converters are critical to the efficient transmission and use of energy, efficiently converting the voltage, current, and frequency of electrical signals. You will learn how to design and control power converters, to manufacture prototypes, and to bring them to series production.

Adrenalin. E-mobility.

E-mobility is fundamentally changing the required technologies. You will learn to combine efficient e-motors, powerful batteries and effective inverters with modern control algorithms to create the next generation of drives, and can directly apply your knowledge on the racetrack with our successful FH JOANNEUM Racing Team.

Renewable. Energy.

Renewable and regenerative energies are key concepts in modern energy generation as they are based on sustainable sources such as the sun, wind, water, and biomass. You will learn how to make the best use of renewables, from their generation and distribution to storage.

Practice. Prototyping.

Prototyping in power electronics is critical for testing the function and performance of power electronic components and identifying potential design improvements. You will produce experimental models in our laboratories and gain a realistic insight into how power electronics solutions work in practice.
