As a student, you are trained to become an electronic engineer in product design. Designing has an intrinsically multidisciplinary character and requires technology-based knowledge but also project management skills.
The bachelor program EEE offers an integrated approach to these skills by project-based learning (EXPO* and IPD*) and subject-specific courses. Communication subjects and Integrated Project Management are part of the curriculum.The Fontys EEE bachelor program with a focus on designing electronic systems is unique in the Netherlands.
(*EXPO stands for: Engineering eXPerience Organisation; IPD for Integrated Product Development).
The total study programme of 4 years is split up in:
- the Propaedeutic phase (1 year)
- the Core phase (3 years).
The curriculum of the EEE bachelor program is offered in the context of 4 themes:
Do you want to be active with light and sound technologies? In the bachelor program EEE you can take part in projects specifically aimed at sound (and light) engineering.
Innovative applications in health care are often made possible by electronic designers. In this theme, you can take part in projects related to healthcare and cure.
In this theme, you will focus on smart and sustainable technology applications related to your living environment.
As an electronic engineer, you will be in the center of all kinds of internet applications like social media and Internet of Things (IoT).
In all themes, a business orientation is part of the programme.
The first and second-year programme offers you a range of projects belonging to the themes mentioned above. Students will have the opportunity to find out and explore what Electronic Engineering is about. The complete bachelor programme consists of 8 semesters which offer a mix of theory (40%), practicals in laboratories (30%) and projects (30%).

Two internships of 100 days each including thesis writing in a company are part of the bachelor programme. These internships are planned in semester 5 and 8.
Research at Fontys University of Applied Sciences
Applied research is an important component in the EEE curriculum: right from the beginning, you learn what it means to work with real assignments from companies in order to improve certain technologies or products or even come up with new innovative technologies. Also, our teachers are constantly involved in cooperation programmes with University of Technology Eindhoven (our neighbor) and the implementation of lectureships.
The starting point is to realize an exchange of students in development with people from the academic world and the working field. The outside world consists of the working field, universities but also financed projects like specific subjects of research.
The honors programme PROUD stands for PRogramme OUtstanding Development where excellent students are selected and will get more out of their study through company coaches in the field of Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
This programme is a scientific preparation programme that prepares students to stream up more easily in a master programme at University of Technology Eindhoven (TU/e). Students will do TU/e pre-master courses in parallel with the Fontys bachelor courses. Enrollment in PRIDE can reduce the study time for both bachelor and master study with 1 full year.
Students about this programme
"Studying Electronic Engineering has opened a whole new window of opportunity for me. The opportunities are almost endless with engineering in general; large international companies provide work opportunities all over the world for you! Studying at Fontys Electronic Engineering department has been really great. The continued support of the staff, as well as rich learning experience, have been truly irreplaceable. I have been studying Engineering at Fontys University for three years now and have felt myself truly transformed into a professional engineer.
It has to be mentioned that living in Holland is also great, the best parts being Queens Day where the whole country stops to celebrate! Holland is also a fun festive place to live. A great experience so far."
