Pursuant to Act 367 of May 22, 2013 on Universities (the University Act) with subsequent changes, the following curriculum for the Bachelor's programme in Electronics and Computer Engineering is established. The programme also follows the Joint Programme Regulations and the Examination Policies and Procedures for the Faculty of Engineering and Science.
The Bachelor’s programme is organised in accordance with the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Higher Education’s Order no. 814 of June 29, 2010 on Bachelor’s and Master’s Programmes at Universities (the Ministerial Order of the Study Programmes) and Ministerial Order no. 666 of June 24, 2012 on University Examinations (the Examination Order) with subsequent changes. Further reference is made to Ministerial Order no. 1487 of December 16, 2013 (the Admission Order) and Ministerial Order no. 250 of March 15, 2007 (the Grading Scale Order) with subsequent changes.
The programme is offered in Esbjerg.
The Bachelor’s programme falls under the Faculty of Engineering and Science, Aalborg University.
The Bachelor’s programme falls under the Study Board of Energy
The Bachelor's programme is affiliated to the nationwide engineering examiners corps: Ingeniøruddannelsernes landsdækkende censorkorps.
Admission to the Bachelor’s programme in Electronics and Computer Engineering requires an upper secondary education.
The programme’s specific requirements are: English B, Mathematics A and Physics B or Geoscience A according to admission notice. All subjects must be passed.
The Bachelor’s programme entitles the graduate to the Danish designation: Bachelor (BSc) i teknisk videnskab (elektronik og datateknik). The English designation is: Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Engineering (Electronics and Computer Engineering).
The Bachelor’s programme is a 3-year, research-based, full-time study programme. The programme is set to 180 ECTS credits.
The Study Board can approve successfully completed (passed) programme elements from other Bachelor’s programmes in lieu of programme elements in this programme (credit transfer). The Study Board can also approve successfully completed (passed) programme elements from another Danish programme or a programme outside of Denmark at the same level, in lieu of programme elements within this curriculum. Decisions on credit transfer are made by the Study Board based on an academic assessment. See the Joint Programme Regulations for the rules on credit transfer.
In exceptional circumstances, the Study Board study can grant exemption from those parts of the curriculum that are not stipulated by law or ministerial order. Exemption regarding an examination applies to the immediate examination.
The rules for examinations are stated in the Examination Policies and Procedures published by the faculty on their website.
In the assessment of all written work, regardless of the language it is written in, weight is also given to the student's formulation and spelling ability, in addition to the academic content. Orthographic and grammatical correctness as well as stylistic proficiency are taken as a basis for the evaluation of language performance. Language performance must always be included as an independent dimension of the total evaluation. However, no examination can be assessed as ‘Pass’ on the basis of good language performance alone; similarly, an examination normally cannot be assessed as ‘Fail’ on the basis of poor language performance alone.
The Study Board can grant exemption from this in special cases (e.g., dyslexia or a native language other than Danish).
The Bachelor’s project must include an English summary (or another foreign language: French, Spanish or German upon approval by the Study Board). If the project is written in English, the summary must be in Danish (The Study Board can grant exemption from this). The summary must be at least 1 page and not more than 2 pages (this is not included in any fixed minimum and maximum number of pages per student). The summary is included in the evaluation of the project as a whole.
It is assumed that the student can read academic texts in his or her native language as well as in English and use reference works etc. in other European languages.
The following competence profile will appear on the diploma:
A graduate of the Bachelor's programme has competencies acquired through an educational programme that has taken place in a research environment.
A graduate of the Bachelor's programme has fundamental knowledge of and insight into his/her subject's methods and scientific foundation. These properties qualify the graduate of the Bachelor’s programme for further education in a relevant Master’s programme as well as for employment on the basis of the educational programme
The graduate of the Bachelor’s programme:
The programme is structured in modules and organised as a problem-based study. A module is a programme element or a group of programme elements, which aims to give students a set of professional skills within a fixed time frame specified in ECTS credits, and concluding with one or more examinations within specific exam periods. The examinations are defined in the curriculum.
The programme is based on a combination of academic, problem-oriented and interdisciplinary approaches and organised based on the following work and evaluation methods that combine skills and reflection:
Rules concerning the progress of the Bachelor’s programme
The student must participate in all first year examinations by the end of the first year of study in the Bachelor's programme, in order to be able to continue the programme. The first year of study must be passed by the end of the second year of study, in order that the student can continue his/her Bachelor's programme.
In special cases, however, there may be exemption from the above if the student has been on a leave of absence. Leave is granted during first year of study only in the event of maternity, adoption, military service, UN service or where there are exceptional circumstances.
Rules concerning the completion of the Bachelor’s programme
The Bachelor’s programme must be completed no later than six years after it was begun.
All modules are assessed through individual grading according to the 7-point grading scale or Passed/Not passed. All modules are assessed by external assessment (an external examiner) or by internal assessment (an additional examiner or no additional examiner).

Throughout the semesters students will at an increasing abstraction level be introduced to relevant theories and scientific methods. Scientific theory and scientific methods in general are included in the course Problem based learning in science, technology and society. Moreover, the students develop their skills in this area in their project work, where they will apply scientific methods in practice and reflect on their application.
5th semester: One course module must be chosen (15 ECTS).
6th Semester: One project module must be chosen (20 ECTS).
Special project process
In the 3rd, 4th and 5th semesters, the student can upon application, design an educational programme where the project work is replaced by other study activities; cf. the Framework Provisions section 9.3.1
The current version of the study curriculum is published on the Aalborg University website for study curricula.
The curriculum is approved by the Dean of the Faculty of Engineeering and Science and enters into force as of 1 September 2014.
Students who wish to complete their studies under the previous curriculum from 2011 must conclude their education by the summer examination period 2016 at the latest, since examinations under the previous curriculum are not offered after this time.
In accordance with the Joint Programme Regulations of the Faculty of Engineering and Science at Aalborg University, the curriculum must be revised no later than 5 years after its entry into force.
Minor editorial changes have been made in connection with the digitisation of the study curriculum.
Version 2 September 2017: Geoscience A has been added in § 7.
