Double degree programme with Miguel Hernandez University of Elche, Spain
Electrical and electronic engineering is one of the widest research fields. There are no sectors in industry or science which could develop without innovative electronic solutions. Investigations during doctoral studies are carried out in the fields of ultrasonic measurements and diagnostics in aviation; and energy generation and supply systems; and in other industrial sectors, applications of electronic solutions in biomedicine, monitoring and control systems for various economic and transportation facilities, including signal processing and imaging. Investigations are conducted using modern research tools and instruments in the ‘Santaka’ scientific valley.
KTU doctoral students majoring in Electrical and electronic engineering may use the possibilities to carry out part of their experiments in the research institutions of the United Kingdom (The Welding Institute, TWI) and Spain (Miguel Hernandez University of Elche).
