Group T organizes four academic master programs. Within these four masters, different focuses (also known as concentrations) are offered. You choose one master focus. This allows you to specialize further in your area of technological expertise, or to stay in touch with other technological disciplines. Upon graduation you can enter the job market or go on to do a PhD or postgrad program.
In general the goals of the academic master programs are to:
We offer our master programs in 2 formulas:
Engineering ExperienceThe focal point of the Master in Engineering one-year formula is the extensive Engineering Experience of 20 credits, i.e. the master's project. To support this experience, you work with your supervisors on a number of choices. These choices are taken up in a personal development plan. You can also opt to follow a number of external courses or programs in the framework of the Engineering Experience.
Engineering ContentIn addition, you can choose within your major a specific technology focus (sometimes also referred to as a 'concentration'). You also follow a number of course units on management and communication, within which there is some choice.
5E-ContextYou have the choice of a number of course units on current themes relating to the 5E-Context (Engineering, Enterprising, Educating, Environmenting, and Ensembling).
In the Electronics Engineering program you learn to correctly assess the workings and impact of the technologies used. You analyze existing analog and digital electronic systems. You design and implement those systems and complex information and communication systems.
Upon completion of the program, you are an industrial engineer with a broad foundation of general skills and technical knowledge but at the same time also familiar with the world of information processing that plays a crucial role in many social sectors. As a professional, 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.
Focus Intelligent Electronics Intelligent Electronics focuses on the combination of hardware and software to develop and implement embedded systems such as cell phones, MP3 players, digital cameras, etc. You learn to take account of limitations in the area of I/O possibilities, memory, speed, and energy consumption.
Focus Internet Computing Internet Computing capitalizes on the trend to 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 Internet- and web-based applications like search robots and voice over IP, as well as e-commerce, enterprise resource management, and user applications in the field of info-/edu-/entertainment.
