About

You learn to analyse, design, and implement analogue and digital electronic systems as well as complex information and communication systems. Upon completion of the programme, you are an engineer with a broad foundation of general skills and technical knowledge. The Electronics and ICT Engineering Technology program is delivered by University of Leuven.

What is the Master in Electronics and ICT Engineering Technology all about?

In this master's programme you learn to correctly assess the workings and impact of various electronic technologies. You learn to design and implement existing analogue and digital electronic systems and leverage this knowledge to complex information and communication systems.

Intelligent Electronics option

Intelligent Electronics refers to the combination of hardware and software used to develop and implement so-called embedded systems (cell phones, MP3 players, digital cameras, etc.). You learn to take into consideration limitations in the areas of I/O possibilities, memory, speed and energy consumption.

Internet Computing option

Internet Computing follows the trend of a more broadly distributed approach to developing computer applications. The advantages to this are high reliability, scalability, high performance, easy maintenance, low cost price, etc. Examples of applications based on this approach include web-based and internet applications like search robots and voice-over IP, as well as e-commerce, enterprise resource management.

Career paths

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.
