Education

Since the academic year 2004-2005 the “bachelor - master” structure (replacing the candidate - licentiate structure) has been introduced. The initiative for this thorough interference in the programmes of higher education was the Bologna Declaration. The Ministers of Education of 31 European Countries gave in 1999 the start to uniform the higher education in Europe. Although the Bologna process creates convergence, the fundamental principles of autonomy and diversity are still respected. The aim of the Bologna Declaration is to improve in Europe the exchangeability of degrees, the free mobility of students, quality assurance and a flexible study package by introducing credit systems. The Bachelor degree in Engineering at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel is a three year program, and only in the third year a specializations needs to be choosen. Althought, it doesn't exclude to choose another direction in the Master's degree. BRUFACE: Brussels Faculty of Engineering, starting from the academic year 2011-2012, is an initiative of the two universities in the centre of Brussels. The Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) and the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) jointly offer a broad spectrum of fully English taught master programmes in engineering.

Spring school

Within the department ELEC of the VUB, we organize each year a 4 weeks spring school (May-June) to give an intensive training on advanced modelling and simulation techniques of (non)linear dynamic systems, starting from experimental data.

Besides classical courses and exercises, we also provide hands-on experience by working on experimental data that you will measure yourself. The participants should have a good basic knowledge in system theory and signal processing.

Full information about the courses and application can be found in the Doctoral School’s website: http://www.elecdoctoralschool.be

Educational projects

Designing systems from concepts:

The design of complex systems demands that engineers possess significant set of abstract system-level thinking skills. Engineering students therefore need to be exposed to the art of solving problems systematically and have to learn the limitations and the backsides of ad-hoc methods, to ensure that they should only turn to these methods as last resort alternatives.
