Courses

Electives

In your individual study programme (ISP) you can select courses from the master programmes of Computer Science, Electrical Engineering and Mathematics. A course from another master programme is also allowed (contact the programme mentor for approval before the start of such a course). The student may also select elective courses from the embedded systems programme from the TUD and TU/e . The composition of the programme must match the exit qualification of the Master’s programme.

Contact the programme mentor for the composition of your ISP.

With your ISP you select chair(s) where you can do your final project. The chairs where you can do your final these are: https://www.utwente.nl/en/emsys/organization/. You can select a chair and on the website of the chair you find the research topics and also a list of master courses given by that chair.

For more information on a course use the course code in the catalogue: https://osiris.utwente.nl/student/OnderwijsCatalogus.do

Check also the required prerequisites of the course you are interested in.

In the OSIRIS information page (https://osiris.utwente.nl/student/OnderwijsCatalogus.do) you can search for courses that have a specific “Starting block” (1A, 1B, 2A or 2B), and/or the “organizing study” (master Electrical Engineering, master Computer Science, master Embedded Systems and master Applied Mathematics). You can select courses from these master programmes. When you have completed 30 EC you should discuss with the programme mentor your Individual Study Programme. See document at http://www.utwente.nl/emsys/programmeinformation/rules_documents.

In mytimetable you can check if courses have overlap.

Furthermore the 4TU is offering courses by telefacility:

This list beneath is manually composed and therefore not necessarily correct! The list contains the courses often chosen by Embedded Systems students in the past. 

In consultation with the programme mentor, also courses from other master programmes can be selected.

Note: sometimes a course in the course catalogue is indicated as a master course, but is a pre-master course and not a master course and therefore not suitable as an elective course, e.g. Calculus A (201500291), Calculus B (201500293), Calculus C (191512041), Linear Algebra (201500292), Digital Logic and Computer Organization (201400315, 201500252), Instrumentation for Embedded Systems (191210001).
