In this master's programme you learn to correctly assess the workings and impact of various electronic technologies. You learn to design and implement existing analogue and digital electronic systems and leverage this knowledge to complex information and communication systems.
Intelligent Electronics option
Intelligent Electronics refers to the combination of hardware and software used to develop and implement so-called embedded systems (cell phones, MP3 players, digital cameras, etc.). You learn to take into consideration limitations in the areas of I/O possibilities, memory, speed and energy consumption.
Internet Computing option
Internet Computing follows the trend of a more broadly distributed approach to developing computer applications. The advantages to this are high reliability, scalability, high performance, easy maintenance, low cost price, etc. Examples of applications based on this approach include web-based and internet applications like search robots and voice-over IP, as well as e-commerce, enterprise resource management, and user applications in the area of info-/edu-/entertainment.
Add an in-company or project-based learning experience to your master's programme
You can augment your master's programme with the Postgraduate Programme Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Engineering. This programme is made up by a multifaceted learning experience in and with a company, with an innovative engineering challenge as the central assignment. It is carried out in a team setting, has a distinct international dimension, and usually requires a multidisciplinary approach. Entrepreneurs and students alike are encouraged to innovate, transfer knowledge and grow. It is a unique cross-fertilisation between company and classroom.
The Faculty of Engineering Technology maintains close ties with universities around the world. At Campus Group T, more than 20% of the engineering students are international students. They represent 65 different nationalities from all over the world. This international network extends not just to Europe, but also to China, Southeast Asia, India, Ethiopia and beyond.
Campus Group T is the only campus of the faculty who offers all the degree programmes in the business language par excellence: English. The language is ubiquitous both inside and outside the classroom. If you've mastered English, you feel right at home. And if you want to explore more of the world, you can do part of your training at a university outside Belgium as an exchange student.
This master's programme brings students to the advanced level of knowledge and skills that is associated with scientific work in the broad sense, and more particularly to those areas of the engineering sciences that are related to electronics and IT/communications systems. This programme offers a broad academic training in the analysis, modelling and design of electronics and IT systems. The Electronics major focuses on the hardware of digital and analog systems. In the IT major, the emphasis is on computer systems, application software and communication networks.
Degree holders are able to apply the acquired scientific knowledge autonomously and in a broad social context. They possess the necessary organisational skills to hold executive positions.
On completion of the programme, you will be an industrial engineer with a broad foundation of general skills and technical knowledge. At the same time, you will be familiar with the fascinating world of information processing, which plays a crucial role in many social sectors. Often, you will also play a key role in the development of a variety of digital media applications ranging from modern consumer products (positioning and navigation systems; smartphones; digital audio and video) to custom stand-alone or networked applications.
