Power electronics are used for processing voltages and currents when converting electrical energy from one form into another. Power-electronic devices can be found in almost every electric device from household applications to transportation, industry, as well as electricity generation, transmission and distribution. It has been estimated that in the near future, 80 % of all the generated electrical energy will pass through a power electronic converter.

Electromechanics refers to the process of converting electrical energy into mechanical energy and vice versa. Nearly all electrical energy is produced by rotating electrical generators and roughly half of this energy is converted back to mechanical energy with electrical motors driven by power-electronic converters. The trend of transportation electrification will further increase the need for electrical motor drives. Together, power electronics and electromechanics are the key technologies for enabling the energy transition in transportation and renewable electricity generation. Electrical Engineering – Power Electronics and Electromechanics is offered at Tampere University.


Having the Master’s Degree provides a wide range of career opportunities in several fields of industry. The companies in Finland that manufacture power electronics and electrical machines have a strong and continuous need for employees who are specialized in this degree programme.

Possible job options include, but are not limited to, design and testing, research and development, and management and marketing. In addition, electricity production, transmission and distribution companies are continuously looking for engineers in power electronics and electromechanics. If you are interested in deepening your knowledge in the area, particularly from theoretical point of view, the academy constantly offers positions for post-graduate studies where you can pursue a doctoral degree.
