Electrical engineers can adapt to areas that evolve very quickly (e.g. multimedia, telecommunications, biotechnology, and new energies) with innovation and responsiveness as a constantly top priority. The team projects forge essential skills: leadership, time management and conflict management. The Master’s dissertation allows electrical engineers to get to the bottom of a long and complex project and to exceed their limits.
In collaboration with the Biosciences, Infortech and Numediart research institutes, this specialisation links hardware and software instrumentation, data acquisition and processing, modelling, analysis of dynamic systems and the design of optimisation and control strategies for technological systems and industrial processes. The selected fields of application are biomedical engineering and the biotechnology sector, which are particularly important in Wallonia. Topics covered include biomedical signal processing, medical imaging, medical robotics and mathematical modelling of ecological and biological systems through various tools of non-linear parametric estimation and machine learning.

For those with another academic qualification, acquired in or outside the French Community of Belgium, admission is possible on the basis of an EU/non-EU or personalised application.
The training of electrical engineers can lead to further studies, either to specialise in the domain, to complement their training, or to carry out research:
- As part of another Master’s or Specialised Master’s in engineering at UMONS or at another European university, specialising in, for example, Total Quality Management, industrial risk and safety of operations, transport management, to name but a few, or a Master’s in Business Administration.
To write a doctoral thesis as part of their PhD in engineering (particularly in collaboration with the University’s and Faculty’s research centres).
The programme description defines the expected learning outcomes, i.e. what the student should know, understand and be able to achieve by the end of a learning activity, a teaching unit or a study cycle (Bachelor's, Master's, etc.). Learning outcomes are defined in terms of knowledge, expertise and soft skills.
At the end of the Master's, students will be able to:
- Imagine, implement and operate systems/solutions/software to address a complex problem in the field of electrical engineering as a source of information by integrating needs, contexts and issues (technical, economic, societal, ethical and environmental).
- Mobilise a structured set of scientific knowledge and skills and specialised techniques in order to carry out electrical engineering (data science and dynamical systems) missions, using their expertise and adaptability.
- Plan, manage and lead projects in view of their objectives, resources and constraints, ensuring the quality of activities and deliverables.
- Work effectively in teams, develop leadership, make decisions in multidisciplinary, multicultural, and international contexts.
- Communicate and exchange information in a structured way - orally, graphically and in writing, in French and in one or more other languages - scientifically, culturally, technically and interpersonally by adapting to the intended purpose and the relevant public.
- Adopt a professional and responsible approach, showing an open and critical mind in an independent professional development process.
- Contribute by researching an innovative solution to a problem in engineering sciences.
