Students testing equipment

Research in the Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering are carried out under the auspices of the Engineering Research Institute.

Lecturers at the faculty work on a variety of theoretical and practical research projects in collaboration with business and institutions in the Icelandic professional sector. They are also very active in the international research community.

Master's projects (M.S.)

Master's projects are a substantial component of the master's programme. A Master's project involves the student working on a defined project, often in relation to a business or institution, where the student uses his/her knowledge to analyse and solve a problem, presenting the results in the form of a dissertation.

A variety of opportunities exist for research grants in Master's programmes. Amongst other things, it is the role of the supervisor to obtain such grants.

Skemman is an electronic archive storing students‘ final projects and employees‘ scientific publications.

Doctoral projects (Ph.D.)

Doctoral dissertations are accessible at the National and University Library.
