Program Overview

Program Description:
In this master you learn to correctly assess the workings and impact of the technologies used. You analyse existing analogue and digital electronic systems. You design and implement those systems, as well as complex information and communication systems. This is an initial master's programme. You can follow it on a half-time or full-time basis.

Intelligent Electronics focus: Intelligent Electronics focuses on the combination of hardware and software to develop and implement so-called embedded systems (e.g. 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 focus: Internet Computing goes along with 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 such applications are all web-based and internet applications like search robots and voice over IP, as well as e-commerce, enterprise resource management, and user applications in the area of info-/edu-/entertainment.

A Master of Industrial Sciences in Electronics Engineering is capable of: · selecting, formulating, analyzing and answering appropriately a research question of his own choice based on a theoretical or practical problem in his area of technology while taking into consideration the paradigms and making use of appropriate research methodology. · estimating correctly the effects and the impact of the technologies used. · designing and implementing complex information systems (in groups); drafting the conceptual model, employing user specifications as a starting point; creating the data structure, coding and debugging the application, choosing the hardware and realizing the software. · constructing distributed applications on the basis of the protocol of the web. · playing a key role in all applications of digital media: from consumer products to made-to-measure applications which work on a stand-alone basis or operate on the web. · managing technology and communicating efficiently the results of his work, study or research. · continuing the process of self-education as well as coaching others in their development as individuals and professionals. · integrating relevant research, work and/or study experience acquired in a different environment at home or abroad. · functioning and cooperating in multidisciplinary and international teams through project work and through an exchange of views and opinions. · recognizing and taking into consideration the ethical, economic, ecological and aesthetic aspects and implications of his actions.
