European Master’s Program in Embedded Computing Systems

Country: Europe;

Deadline: 16.01.2011

Special conditions: Level: Masters

Address: University of Kaiserslautern (Germany); Norwegian University of Science and Technology (Norway); University of Southampton (United Kingdom)

 
Erasmus Mundus Scholarship program in Embedded Computing Systems for applicants holding bachelors degree

The European Master’s Course in Embedded Computing Systems (EMECS) is designed to educate Bachelor graduates from Electrical & Computer Engineering and Computer Science as well as graduates from related disciplines to become experts in the field of Embedded Computing Systems. The participating institutions are:
University of Kaiserslautern (Germany)
- Norwegian University of Science and Technology (Norway)
- University of Southampton (United Kingdom)

EMECS is a two-years Master’s course (120 ECTS credits) that is pursued at two out of the three participating institutions. Students will spend one year at each of the selected universities and will receive a joint degree from the respective institutions. The language of instruction is English. Students participating in this program will be trained in three major areas:

* Hardware Architectures of Embedded Systems
* System-on-Chip Design
* System Software

These areas constitute the “Core Programme” of EMECS and will be taught during the first year of study at each institution. Completion of the core programme (45 ECTS credits) will ensure the mobility of the students after the first year of study.

The “Elective Programme” (45 ECTS credits) provides training in specialized topics of embedded system design and provides the background in typical application areas like communication systems, automation & control and microsystems. The course is completed with a Master’s Thesis (30 ECTS credits) which typically contributes to a larger project conducted jointly with industry.
