Introduction semester

All of the programmes under the Study Board for Electronics and Information Technology consist of four semesters. The first semester is a common Introductory Semester followed by three semesters consisting of a chosen specialization.

The purposes of the introductory semester are:

  • To give the foreign students an understanding of the problem-based learning method used at AAU.
  • To give the foreign students a solid experience with project work in relation to ways of presenting problems within the areas: Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, together with the corresponding documentation (report writing).
  • To give the foreign students sufficient knowledge in specific areas in relation to their choice of specialisation.
  • To ensure that the foreign students achieve a sufficient professional level required to proceed with their chosen specialisation.


In connection with the project unit, courses in Matlab, C-programming, introduction to IT-infra structure, English, techniques for project word report and communication are held. Furthermore, courses with a common platform to the specialisations are held depending upon need.
