About

The Master of Electronics and ICT Engineering Technology will prepare the student to play a key role in the development of a variety of digital media applications. Ranging from modern consumer products  such as GPS positioning, and navigation systems, to smartphones, digital audio and video devices.

This programme will introduce the foundational systems of knowledge and teach the vital skills required for success within this broad field. 

Structure

This Master’s programme is made of two main options:

  • Intelligent Electronics option refers to the combination of hardware and software used to develop and implement embedded systems (cell phones, MP3 players, digital cameras). You will learn to consider limitations in the areas of I/O possibilities, memory, speed and energy consumption.
  • Internet Computing option follows the trend of a broadly distributed approach to developing applications. The advantages of this approach include high reliability, scalability, high performance, easy maintenance and low cost.

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 in Engineering. This programme is carried out in a team setting, and has a distinct international dimension. Entrepreneurs and students alike are encouraged to innovate, transfer knowledge and grow. It is the cross-fertilisation between company and classroom that makes the programme unique.

Career perspectives

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.
