This master prepares you for a bright future in the fascinating world of advanced sensor applications. A domain that is rapidly growing, providing all kinds of interesting prospects for you, ambitious engineers. Within the globally important domain of health, sensor applications will provide totally new ways to monitor, heal, treat and care for people.
Sensors affect and benefit the lives of billions of people world-wide. Healthcare is one of the main areas where the innovative applications of sensors becomes increasingly important. Quite a promising prospect for you as a future sensor specialist, with expertise in said area.
Like our bachelor's programmes, the Sensor System Engineering master's is recognised as an honours programme, offering a challenging schedule to students. This means 10 ECs are added to the regular 60 ECs master's programme. We strive for students who are passionate about technology and committed to their own personal development. We select students who have an entrepreneurial style and who consider themselves to be world citizens. You will be expected to show creativity and the drive to discover new solutions by yourself. Naturally, you will be supported by the lecturing staff, as well as experts from industry, health and applied research.
As a Master of Engineering you will qualify for a variety of jobs in the following domains. You can make a career in the health domain, developing products and services that involve sensor innovations for medical devices, domotics and home care. Another promising career move is to apply for a job in the technology domain, where you will develop technical sensor applications. A scientific research environment is another great place for you as a master. Here you will work alongside scientists who are focused on high tech research projects as genome sequencing or seismic monitoring systems.
SSE is in the formal process of becoming an NVAO accredited HBO Master's Programme. After graduation you will receive a Master of Engineering diploma. The honours module is mentioned in the diploma and the diploma supplement.
