This program is at the highest level of European mastery. It offers advanced level courses in electronic and computer systems theory, analysis, design, modeling, and fabrication. This recently revised offering combines electronic systems and telecommunications engineering expertise into an up-to-date and industry-relevant modern program.

Program description

Students have the option to specialize in one of five areas:

  • Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Nanotechnology
  • Image processing and analysis
  • Semiconductor and plasma technology
  • Advanced data networks

There are two entries to the program, in February and September, and flexible study options are provided. Due to scheduling of project deadlines, full-time students starting in September can complete the program in 12 months, while full-time students starting in February can complete the program in 18 months.

This program combines the expertise of electronic systems and telecommunications engineering into an up-to-date, industry-relevant modern program:
