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.
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.
