About Embedded Systems (MSc) at University of Twente

Are you interested in the combination of hardware and software, e.g. the design of control software? And do you want to work on topics such as embedded robotics, pervasive systems or energy efficiency, then this Master's programme might just be ideal for you! The two-year Master's in Embedded Systems is an internationally oriented programme and is taught entirely in English. You can start in September and February.

You can start the pre-master's programme in September. Read more about the Master's programme, pre-master's programme and admission. You can also find more information about career perspectives. Read the testimonial of students from Embedded Systems.

This Master's programme focuses on the design of embedded systems: the hardware and software that control a device, process or system, e.g. smart phones, pacemakers, chip sets or navigation systems.

Focus and disciplines

An embedded system is a combination of hardware systems (electrical engineering) and software systems (computer science) built into equipment that we don't always recognize as being computerized, such as the systems that control a car's anti-lock brakes, the automatic pilot of an aircraft or the sensors and filters used in processing plants. Embedded systems call for real-time operation, reliability, maintainability and cost-effectiveness, which places heavy demands on software (user interfaces, data processing, machine control) and hardware (I/O, Asics, DSP, FPGA).

Research and specialization

This English-taught Master's programme in Embedded Systems focuses on the design of embedded systems, e.g. system validation, quantitative evaluation of embedded systems, electronics, maths, embedded computer architecture and how to create a system on a chip. You'll be challenged by topics ranging from control engineering, integrated circuit design and computer architecture, to communication networks, real-time operating systems and software engineering.

Why opt for Embedded Systems?

This programme features small groups, personal guidance and gives you the opportunity to broaden your horizons internationally.

Career perspectives

Our graduates have excellent career prospects. There's a great need for engineers with skills that bridge the gap between hardware and software.
