Application deadline: 19 April 2022

This programme will provide you with broad knowledge of the different technologies that form the construction basis of embedded sensor systems. You will also gain understanding of the methods and tools you need for analysis and construction, both on an overall level and in-depth. In addition, you will learn to put your theoretical knowledge to practical use by means of close cooperation with the industry, in which you work with some of the companies’ real research projects.

During your studies you will learn everything from the construction and programming of embedded systems to the connection to other features. The programme covers all the important parts of the process, such as data collection, processing, communication and energy supply considering the underlying technologies; design method, optimization, energy/power efficiency and measurement system.

Our students work in projects, both individually and in groups, to gain advanced knowledge in different areas. The programme is taught in English, which will increase your opportunities on the global job market.
