PhD studies at ISY are carried out within the subject Electrical Engineering which covers a wide range of methods for analysis, modeling and design within
• Automatic Control Systems
• Electronics
• Telecommunications
• Computer Vision

The subject Electrical Engineering

• has a solid foundation in mathematics and mathematical modeling of physical systems
• focuses on analysis and design of systems with industrial applications
• is interdisciplinary in nature as the analysis and design of complex systems requires knowledge from several different areas
• is neighboring other areas as well, especially computer science as the design of complex systems includes partitioning and integration of hardware and software.
The PhD studiesresearch education in Electrical Engineering aims to graduate technical licentiates and doctors with the ability to understand and develop methodologies in the field. Due to the industry-related activities and co-operation with industry, people with licentiate and doctoral degrees in Electrical Engineering are very attractive on the job market.


Electrical Engineering comprises eight different areas of specialization and corresponding divisions. Seven of these are located at ISY according to

In addition to these seven divisions, there is one division at the Department of Science and Technology (ITN):
