Contribute to advanced solutions in industrial processes by designing the software and hardware of complex embedded systems in vehicles, pacemakers, chipsets, and other devices.
The design of embedded systems is at the core of technological and industrial progress. Embedded systems are building blocks of medical devices, automobiles, industrial machinery, and GPS systems. Even your car’s antilock braking system (ABS) is an embedded system. The design of such systems is crucial for their functionality. If an embedded system can’t perform the required task in time, this has an immediate effect on the safety of the person using the system but also on energy efficiency and cost. Within the Master’s in Embedded Systems at the University of Twente, you will learn to design, build, and program intelligent software and hardware that comply with strict requirements concerning time latency, power consumption, reliability, and cost efficiency.
In this two-year, English-taught Master’s, you will learn to tackle the increasing complexity of modern embedded systems by integrating both hardware and software from the early stages of the design process. You will gain the necessary engineering skills and knowledge in real-time operating systems, digital hardware design, computer architecture, embedded software development, embedded artificial intelligence, and sensor integration, among others. By the end of the Master’s, you will be able to design embedded systems that meet the desired performance requirements, such as time latency, power consumption, reliability, and cost efficiency for various applications.
Start Masters's in Embedded Systems
You can start your studies in September or February. If you need to follow a Pre-Master’s first, you can start in September and then continue with the Master’s.
You have a lot of freedom to tailor your Master’s to your interests. Whether you are interested in computer architecture, embedded AI, Internet of Things, dependable computing, or cyber-physical systems, you can choose your field of focus by selecting a set of elective courses. This way, you get to shape your learning path.
