Before choosing courseMF2063 Embedded Systems Design Project 9.0 creditsAdministrate About course

The Embedded Systems Design Project aims to provide students with the professional skills needed to create innovative embedded systems. This multidisciplinary product development is realized by combining design with electronics- and software engineering, and other required disciplinary skills. In this course, students will be exposed to real-life industrial needs and situations through close cooperation with industrial partners.

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course focuses on product development of embedded systems in industrially relevant design projects. The ability to create embedded systems is primarily created by developing knowledge and skills in subjects such as software engineering, real-time programming, electronics engineering and distributed systems, complemented by application domain specific skills such as motion control, signal processing and human-machine interfaces.

The course is based on problem based learning and work in large projects, where the ability to engage in professional development while developing cooperation, communication and project management is practiced.

In the learning environment, team formation, teamwork and industrial collaboration are an integrated part. The student teams work in collaboration with industrial representatives to determine the specific factors that govern product requirements, design and realization. They focus on product-needs, design requirements, performance requirements and testing and validation.

Intended learning outcomes

After passing the course, the student should be able to:

  • identify, compare and critically assess aspects of an engineering problem, towards making design decisions.
  • use professional tools and processes necessary for the development of embedded systems.
  • learn to get organised, manage, lead and become part of a cross technical and complex development project.
  • working through all aspects of an engineering development process;
  • designing and implementing prototypes.
  • apply a fundamental test process;
  • apply a requirements management method with considerations taken to the life-cycle concerns of embedded systems based products.
