What is EIT Digital Master School?

The EIT Digital Master School is a collaboration between the best technical universities in Europe, top European research institutes and leading business partners. We aim to forge entrepreneurial talents in digital innovation through outstanding education. By joining the Master School, you are not just about to start a Master’s degree, you are stepping into a leading European open innovation organisation that brings together a partnership of over 200 top European corporations, SMEs, start-ups, universities and research institutes. 

Why study Embedded Systems at EIT Digital?

Embedded systems are everywhere! More than 98% of the world’s processors are located in embedded systems. Embedded systems focuses on enabling technologies and design methodologies for computing systems which are embedded as integral parts of larger systems. They are designed for specific control functions of devices with various electronic and mechanical components, enabling embedded intelligence of these devices.

Applications include a wide variety of industrial and personal smart systems such as robots, cars, airplanes, satellites, elevators, mobile telephones, washing machines, and health-care equipment just to mention a few. In all these areas, embedded systems confer added value to the products by either extending the range of the delivered functionalities or by enhancing the quality of a “traditional” functionality that is rendered to the user.

The mission of the Embedded Systems (ES) programme is to expose students to cross-disciplinary studying and working environment and give a holistic skillset on embedded intelligent systems, their underlying technologies, their development, and their integration.

How is the programme structured?

All EIT Digital Master School programmes follow the same scheme:

  • Students study one year at an ‘entry’ university and one year at an ‘exit’ university in two of EIT Digital’s hot spots around Europe.
  • Upon completion, graduates receive degrees from the two universities and a certificate awarded by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology.
  • The first year is similar at all entry points with basic courses to lay the foundation for the chosen technical programme focus. Some elective courses may also be chosen. At the same time, students are introduced to business and management. During the second semester, a design project is combined with business development exercises. These teach how to turn technology into business and how to present a convincing business plan.
  • In between the first year and the second year, a summer school addresses business opportunities within a socially relevant theme.
  • The second year offers a specialisation and a graduation project. The gradation project includes an internship at a company or a research institute and results in a Master thesis with a strong innovation and entrepreneurship dimension.
