About

The EIT Embedded Systems program is delivered by Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e).

Embedded Systems 

The term 'embedded system' refers to electronic components (that almost always contain one or more components with programmable software) of a wide range of personal and industrial devices. Some examples include transport systems, medical devices and equipment in the construction industry. Embedded systems contribute added value to products in all of these areas by expanding the range of supplied functionalities or improving the quality of a 'traditional' functionality that is provided to the user.

Content of the EIT Master's in Embedded Systems

When you have completed the program, you will have a holistic overview of the specification, design and implementation of complex embedded systems, as part of which you will take account of aspects such as limited resources, budget and development time. Aside from technical skills, the EIT program provides insights into the elements of business and developing innovations into successful business ideas.
