The Department of Electrical Engineering aims to be an environment for successful and valuable research and education with a focus on electrical enginering science solutions for important social challenges.
The new departments within engineering and natural science
From the first of January 2020 the Department of Engineering Sciences was divided into three new departments:
- Department of materials science and engineering
- Department of electrical engineering
- Department of civil and industrial engineering
Our hope is that the sharing will lead to better opportunities for collegial discussions and decision-making processes where more people can become involved as well as more opportunities for strategic work in education, postgraduate education and research.
For many years the Department of Engineering Sciences at Uppsala University has conducted a broad research in a broad sense, aiming to lead the development of sustainable technology, energy supplies and life science technologies. Our objective is to understand and develop techniques that give mankind a better life. Our research encompasses both science and technology. Science helps us to understand how everything works and technology helps us to build solutions based on new knowledge.
The Departments offer an exciting place to work at with research in a broad technology related field, from basic research to large-scale applied research, and close contact with the students through the department's involvement in many engineering programmes. We are looking for talented and dedicated teachers, researchers and graduate students.
