About

Find out more information about Electronics & Embedded Technology

Electronics is a technical and scientific discipline that studies physical, non-linear, electric systems or electronic components and the circuits that include these physical elements or the electronic circuits. Electronics has nowadays tremendous application in almost all fields one can think of, from communication, medicine, military equipment to the entertainment industry.

Embedded technology studies the combination of computer hardware and software within a device that is designed to perform a specific and repetitive function. Embedded devices are found inside anything electronic that seems intelligent such as automobiles, mobile phones, microwave ovens, digital cameras and other gadgets that we use today.

Students who apply to a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in electronics and embedded technology will learn how to select, adapt and develop hardware/software components. Electronics and embedded technology programmes combine theoretical knowledge with a lot of laboratory work that are meant to teach, prove, test and apply the laws and theorems that dominate the field.

Graduates from electronics and embedded technology can mostly find jobs in the automotive, computer technology and consumer electronics industries and choose from the follow career options: embedded system engineer, embedded systems designer, software engineer, design engineer, electronics technologist/engineer, electronics drafter, software/chip developer.

Suggested Masters in Electronics & Embedded Technology

M.Sc. Nanoscience

Nanoscience is an interdisciplinary field within the natural sciences. It deals with understanding and utilising materials and phenomena at the nanoscale – that is, between 0.1 and 100 nanometres. The ability to work on this scale makes it possible to develop highly improved or completely new functions and properties in a wide range of materials. The Nanoscience course is delivered by Aarhus University.
