In the master's degree programme, students can set individual priorities and learn a great deal more about the subfields of electrical engineering. You’ve moved beyond the basics and the general lectures, and these are now replaced by truly practice-oriented subjects. For the most part, you can choose these yourself. I can definitely recommend this degree programme to those who enjoy designing their own small, technical, home-grown projects and want to pep these up a professional level.
