Program description

Embedded systems are hardware/software combinations whose purpose is to control a device, a process, or a larger system.

Specific examples of embedded systems include: those controlling the ABS of a car or the operation of its engine; the automatic pilot of an aircraft; the chip set and software within a set-top box for digital TV; and control systems embedded in a nuclear reactor. The importance of embedded systems is growing continuously. In 2003 there were 8 billion embedded programmable components worldwide. Conservative estimates foresee a doubling of this figure by 2010 or 3 embedded devices for every person on earth.

As systems become ever more intelligent and distributed, they also become more complex and interdependent. Security, dependability and interoperability requirements continue to grow. Timely and cost-effective system design, development, and inter-working all have become major challenges. These challenges can only be addressed effectively through a new generation of students educated in Embedded Systems design.

The Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, and Computer Science offers a 2-year MSc programme in embedded system design. This multidisciplinary programme has an increasing inclination towards embedded software and systems dependability. As more and more functional.

This program focuses on the design methodology of embedded systems in hardware and software. It is an interdisciplinary area of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering. The TU Delft focus is on Embedded Software.

System Validation; Software Testing and Quality Engineering; Embedded Real-time Systems; Performance Analysis; Embedded Computer Architectures.
