About this program

Master of Science Computer Engineering

Computer Engineering is the engineering discipline that deals with the usage and development of Software and Hardware of computing systems (computers). It covers computers and computing devices from embedded to personal computers, and from mainframes to supercomputers. Computer engineering is widely considered to be one of the most dynamic fields in terms of market growth. Every year, every person in this world buys at least one product that has been designed by a computer engineer.

The students joining the Computer Engineering master of science program will learn the theory and practice of system software, including programming, operating systems, compilers and computer networks. Furthermore they will learn computer architecture, and the implementation and development of computer hardware. In addition, the state of the art in design of software tools and methodologies for synthesis, physical design, VLSI, hardware software codesign, systems on chip, VLSI test technology and reliability, and performance analysis will be addressed by the programme.

In order to prepare our students to become world-class engineers, we provide them with strong theoretical and practical knowledge. In order to ensure that our graduates can contribute to the industry, we devote a large part of the programme to practical software and hardware design experiments and prototyping.

The MSc programme in Computer Engineering is related to the programmes in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, and in particular Embedded Systems, which are also offered by the faculty of EEMCS. The Computer Engineering programme has a focus towards (field) programmable hardware (such as microcontrollers and FPGAs), while the Embedded Systems programme has an inclination towards embedded software and system dependability.
