Programme

Embedded systems are hardware-software systems embedded into a larger product. The master programme focuses on how to design good, i.e. efficient and reliable, embedded systems.

"The synergy between the top TUs keeps the program always in phase with the most recent technological developments.
After finishing my undergraduate studies, I was searching for a master program in Embedded Systems that was composed of a balanced combination of theory and practice. Among the few universities around the world, TU Delft had a very interesting program that fueled my motivation. It was unique in being part of the joint program, known as 3TU, between the top three Dutch technical universities.

As a 3TU student, I can easily follow courses I like from any of the three universities. The synergy between the top TUs keeps the program always in phase with the most recent technological developments. The strong bonds with the industry allow students not only to get access to but also to participate in the development of the cutting-edge technologies.

On the personal level, being among the most culturally diverse universities in Europe, TU Delft offers a valuable opportunity to interact with people of very different backgrounds. I still remember that course in my first quarter where I was working with a group of four people and each of us was from a different country.

My experience so far has been so exciting, and I am sure that it is the right preparation for a challenging future."

"Nice balance between software and hardware
After finishing my Bachelor in Electrical Engineering, I was looking for a master study that had a balance between Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Being in the Embedded System domain, both hardware- and software-aspects are important and are of interest for me. Therefore I made the choice to take part in the 4TU MSC Embedded Systems master programme.

During my studies I learned a great deal more about Computer Science, (Embedded) Linux, Embedded Computer Architecture and so on. The focus on both software and hardware was for me a very nice balance which kept the study interesting enough to finish. Instead of specializing in one part I've broadened my knowledge even more, which could be useful in case of management aspirations in the future.

After finishing my studies in 2011 by doing a MSc project at Thales NL in Hengelo, they offered me a job as Software Engineer, which I happily accepted. Here I started working in a Dutch research project called “STARS”, in which we work together with organizations such as TNO, TU Delft, University of Twente and Recore Systems. This project was a continuation of the knowledge I gained during my MSc studies. I still work at Thales NL with great joy, being part of three different projects in the role as both Software Engineer and Scrum Master."
