About

The Embedded Systems (ES) programme offered by EIT Digital Master School focuses on enabling technologies and design methodologies for computer systems which are embedded as integral part of larger systems, designed for specific control functions of devices with various electronic and mechanical components.

Overview

Why study Embedded Systems?

The Embedded Systems (ES) programme is offered by EIT Digital Master School. Embedded systems are everywhere. More than 98% of the world’s processors are located in embedded systems. 

Applications include a wide variety of industrial and personal systems such as robots, cars, airplanes, satellites, elevators, mobile telephones, washing machines, and health-care equipment just to mention a few. In all these areas, embedded systems confer added value to the products by either extending the range of the delivered functionalities or by enhancing the quality of a “traditional” functionality that is rendered to the user.

The mission of the Embedded Systems (ES) programme is to give students a holistic and multidisciplinary view and skillset on embedded systems, their underlying technologies, their development, and their integration.

Through the combined technical and entrepreneurial education, students get insight into the role of embedded systems in the modern society and ability to develop innovations into business ideas and high tech embedded systems start-ups.

Graduates of the ES programme become world-class specialists and innovators in the field of embedded systems, capable of developing smart embedded solutions for new challenges in domains of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) and the Internet-of-Things (IoT). They are also capable of taking on leading management roles in embedded systems and more general ICT companies.

What are the career opportunities for Embedded Systems graduates?

Many European companies are world leading in the field of embedded systems design and have a strong demand for highly skilled, creative engineers, innovators, system architects, and specialists. In this ever-changing world, Europe needs brand new companies that are able to provide innovative embedded solutions to address societal challenges, to improve the quality of life, and to boost the European economy and leadership. Graduates of this programme could be the pioneers to bring about that change.

As a result, ES can lead to a very wide variety of jobs. To name a few:

  • Embedded Systems Engineer
  • Embedded Solutions Engineer
  • Robotic Systems Software Engineer
  • Embedded Operating Systems Software Developer
  • Hardware Engineer
  • Wireless Embedded Software Engineer
  • Audio Software Systems Engineer
  • Autonomous Vehicle Systems Engineer
