About

The aim of this Embedded Electronics System Design from Chalmers University of Technology is to educate engineers that can design, implement and verify advanced embedded electronic systems based on hardware and software.

Overview

Your smartphone is probably the most well-known example of an advanced embedded system; a handheld low-power device that carries out signal processing at the same time as it is able to entertain its user with computer games, internet sessions, and streaming audio/video. What makes a system embedded is that system functionality must be implemented in hardware and software within very challenging constraints, such as performance, power consumption, real-time demands, reliability, and size.

The Embedded Electronics System Design from Chalmers University of Technology graduates will gain knowledge and skills in a variety of areas, such as integrated circuit technology, computer design, industrial design methodologies and industrial design software suites. Programme graduates will be qualified to work as productive engineers in industrial teams designing state-of-the-art embedded products or intellectual property, or to undertake graduate studies leading to a doctorate in the field of electronic system design.

Who should apply

As far as study background, most of our students have a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering or in Computer Science and Engineering. In particular, you need skills in electronic and computer fundamentals, including digital system design using VHDL/Verilog and basic programming.

Career opportunities

The opportunities for students graduating from this programme are excellent given the trend of embedded system permeating all aspects of life. Our graduates find jobs in Swedish companies like Volvo, Ericsson, Saab Electronic Defence Systems, Cobham Gaisler, or in international companies such as RUAG, Atmel, ARM, Nordic Semiconductors, Texas Instruments, NXP, or they work as consultants.

Around one fifth of our graduates continue in research schools, earning their PhDs in the general area of embedded electronic system design. Several of our students take part in research projects, both at Chalmers and in companies. Different grants allow our students to travel to conferences: Since the start of the programme, we have had around 20 scientific papers published by students from the program.​
