The emphasis of the Master of Embedded Systems programme from Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) is on the design of efficient and reliable systems. To construct reliable protocols for the behavior of complex software systems, you need to have knowledge of algorithms, performance, hardware, and design and documentation methods.

You can find embedded systems in many of the products that we use every day, from television sets to copiers. 

The combination of computer science (software) and electrical engineering (hardware) in these types of equipment requires an integrated approach towards the design process. That in turn requires a new type of engineer who has a knowledge of both software and hardware. 

The Master of Embedded Systems  from Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) is a joint program of the 4TU Federation: a collaboration between the four universities of technology in the Netherlands. 


After completing your Master of Embedded Systems, you will possess a combination of a scientific perspective with the practically-orientated approach of an engineer. This will provide you with an excellent foundation for a successful career. The numerous fields of application of embedded systems provide you with a broad range of employment possibilities.

Programme Structure

Each year of this two-year program is divided into two semesters, each composed of two quartiles of 8 weeks each. During this time, you have lectures followed by an examination period of two to three weeks. The program consists of:  

  • Compulsory courses 
  • Electives 
  • Final project 

The compulsory courses – which include computer science and electrical engineering courses – provide you with a general foundation, while the electives enable you to broaden your program on the basis of your personal interests and ambitions. One semester of your second year’s study is spent on your final project, and there is a very wide range of subjects from which to choose. You may carry out this project in the business community or you can contribute towards the scientific research at our university.
