About the Degree

Virtually all electronics today contain power electronics and embedded systems in one form or another and this trend is on the rise with future products and production becoming increasingly intelligent and energy-optimised. This means that more and more electronics are based on power electronics, embedded systems and control technology, therefore there is a demand for electronic engineers with expertise in these fields. You will be educated in three disciplines:
Power electronics The world's collective energy consumption is soaring which has led to increased focus on the need to convert energy production from the use of fossil fuels to renewable energy, for example in the form of sun and wind energy. Power electronics is the key to new sustainable energy solutions.  

Embedded systems Embedded systems are found in nearly all electronic equipment and smart solutions. To add to future product and service intelligence, electronic systems are also embedded.   Embedded systems are found everywhere and are used in all market sectors such as energy, medicine, environment, agriculture, communication, entertainment, textiles, transport, logistics, chemistry, food and materials.  

Integrated application In order to integrate the use of power electronics and embedded systems, it is necessary to design a special control system for each device.  

This integrated application of power electronics and function control in the form of embedded systems is a prerequisite for the development and optimalisation of a sustainable future with intelligent products.


To be admitted to this programme, you must hold a Bachelor's degree in Robot Systems or Physics and Technology. 

Other applicants with a similar bachelor’s degree if their academic qualifications correspond with the bachelor degree mentioned above may be accepted based on an individual assessment. 

In addition, documentation may be required verifying that your proficiency in English is at a specified level.
