Master of Science in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology

The Master’s degree program “Electrical Engineering and Information Technology” is jointly implemented at the Institute of Automation and Electronic Instrumentation of KNRTU-KAI with Ottovon-Guericke-University Magdeburg. High standards of teaching and research activity are provided by modern innovation infrastructure of leading Russian university and respective German university as well.

The program is aimed to achieving practice-oriented knowledge and skills in the field of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, and includes basic subjects such as Electromagnetic Field Theory, Power Electronics, Systems and Control, Electronic Circuits, Digital Information Processing, Power Network Planning and Operation as well as advanced subjects such as Digital Communication Systems, Modern Concepts of EMC and EMC Measurements, Advanced Power Electronics, Renewable Energy Sources, Power Electronic Components and Systems, Power System Economics and Special Topics, etc. Also during studies students are involved to the performance of integrated projects, and at the end of studies they prepare and defend final Master's degree thesis. It is assumed that each student will have two scientific supervisors: one from side of Russian university and second from side of German university. Department of Electrical Equipment is a leading at the Institute of Automation & Electronic Instrument-Making of KNRTU-KAI for joint Master's program with the University of Magdeburg within the project GRIAT.

Module Handbook (in English and Russian)


Department of Electrical Equipment is actively developing international cooperation. Under European academic program TEMPUS, project «Practical-oriented master's programs in engineering" was successfully implemented within the period from 2011 to 2013. The new teaching and research laboratory «CAD / CAM / CAE in electrical engineering» was established at the Department of Electrical Equipment with the assistance of the Berlin University of Technology (Germany) and Lessius University (Belgium). The science and technology seminar "Modern hardware and software for the simulation of electrical equipment and power systems» was organized in June 2013 by the Department of Electrical Equipment with the participation of specialists of the company Real Time Digital Simulator Company RTDS Technologies (Canada) and Manitoba-HDVC Research Centre (Canada). The Master’s degree program Electrical Engineering and Information Technologies will use updated equipment and laboratories of Electrical Equipment Department, e.g. academic and research laboratory Automation, Relay Protection and Control of Power Systems, equipped with advanced microprocessorbased relay protection of the leading Russian company "EKRA" (city of Cheboksary) and a set of RTDS Technologies (Canada), as well as academic laboratories for Electrical Engineering, Analog and Digital Electronics, Power Electronic Devices and Electric Drive, set up jointly with the firm National Instruments (USA).
