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
In the Intelligent Electronics option you will use a combination of hardware and software to develop and implement so-called embedded systems (e.g. 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
The Internet Computing option adopts 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.
This is an initial master's programme and can be followed on a full-time or part-time basis.
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. 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.
A Master of Industrial Sciences in Electronic Engineering is capable of: · selecting, formulating, analyzing and answering appropriately a research question of his own choice based on a theoretical or practical problem in his area of technology while taking into consideration the paradigms and making use of appropriate research methodology. · estimating correctly the effects and the impact of the technologies used. · designing and implementing complex information systems (in groups); drafting the conceptual model, employing user specifications as a starting point; creating the data structure, coding and debugging the application, choosing the hardware and realizing the software. · constructing distributed applications on the basis of the protocol of the web. · playing a key role in all applications of digital media: from consumer products to made-to-measure applications which work on a stand-alone basis or operate on the web. · managing technology and communicating efficiently the results of his work, study or research. · continuing the process of self-education as well as coaching others in their development as individuals and professionals. · integrating relevant research, work and/or study experience acquired in a different environment at home or abroad. · functioning and cooperating in multidisciplinary and international teams through project work and through an exchange of views and opinions. · recognizing and taking into consideration the ethical, economic, ecological and aesthetic aspects and implications of his actions.
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.
