Offer Description

Electrification and digitalisation are among the largest areas for the future in the conversion to sustainable societies. The Department of Electrical Engineering conducts successful research and education in these areas - renewable energy sources, electric vehicles, industrial IoT, 5G/6G communication, machine learning and wireless sensor networks as well as smart electronic sensors and biomedical systems. The Department of Electrical Engineering is an international workplace with around 160 employees that all contribute to important technical energy and health challenges at the Ångström Laboratory.

Do you want to shape the future? Are you driven by the idea of creating a sustainable and secure infrastructure? Then we have the perfect opportunity for you!

Project description
Today’s society is dependent on infrastructure such as the electricity grid, communication networks or transport infrastructure. Thus, it is crucial that such critial infrastructure is protected against sabotage both physically – and in conjunction with digitalisation of infrastructure – digitally. In this project, we investigate the use of IoT (internet of things)-based solutions to mitigate sabotage and intrusion in critical infrastructure.

At the department of Electrical Engineering you will find a stimulating and international work environment with many interesting projects. We collaborate with Swedish companies as well as the public sector. We are looking forward to your application!
