Smart systems are the future so get involved now! Smart Systems Engineering from Hanze University of Applied Sciences, Groningen is an exciting master's programme that teaches students to build and develop smart systems that are able to interact with their environment. 


Students will be able to move beyond simply generating data. They will actually be implementing intelligence at the point of data generation to enable smart interventions in response to changes in the environment. This Smart Systems Engineering programme from Hanze University of Applied Sciences, Groningen will challenge you to always look beyond what is known to be possible.

You will work closely with fellow master students from all over the world, forming a tight, committed community. A dedicated staff of experienced lecturers and professionals in their field are ready to push you ahead: teaching you new skills and supporting and stimulating you to make the most of your time at our institute and acquiring the skills of a future engineer.


Healthcare, Energy and high-tech systems and materials (HTSM) are three major areas where the innovative application of smart sensors has become increasingly relevant. These developments provide a myriad of opportunities for the next generation of smart sensor specialists. Just think of developing new products and services that involve smart sensor innovations for medical devices, renewable energy systems, domotics or technical smart sensor applications. The scientific research environment is also a great place to put your master skills into practice. Here you will find the opportunity to work alongside scientists who focus on high tech research projects, such as seismic monitoring systems.

Programme Structure

  • You will experiment with the technical possibilities provided by smart sensors. The curriculum involves courses like Introduction to Smart Systems Engineering, Applied Machine Learning, Adaptive Filtering and Data Centric Architectures. 
  • You will learn how to integrate data coming from multiple, complex sensors and how to interpret these data correctly. 
  • The Master will provide you with the knowledge and tools required to model and design complex smart systems for big data applications and digital signal processing.
