Electrical and Electronic Engineering S7 - Embedded Systems at Fontys Eindhoven in the Fall semester

The Engineering minor is a program we offer to engineering students to widen their scope with several courses in the field of engineering, where the emphasis lies on developing knowledge and skills to design, build and sell an engineering product. Theory, practice and project work are alternated. Fontys is a University of Applied Sciences and therefore has a strong focus on hands on experience. Besides the practical aspects as part of the courses, the exchange program is complemented with a mandatory project of 10 ECTS, where multidisplinary collaboration, communication and hands on experience on real-life problems are essential. Incoming exchange students will be mixed with our regular third year students.

Embedded Systems

This programme has been designed for Bachelor students who have completed at least three years (6 semesters) of Electrical Engineering, Mechatronics or an equivalent.

The exchange program is an advanced program in the field of electrical and electronic engineering. This program is designed to address the entire design challenge of embedded systems. The two mandatory courses for the Embedded Systems differentiation together with the two generic courses will give the students a solid software-focused design platform. The course work is deepened by a design project, where the knowledge and skills are put to use in the design of a prototype electronic system that addresses a real life challenge. Students choosing this differentiation will also be exposed to the field of processing architectures for electronic products covering embedded software, parallel processing, microcontrollers, as well as System on Chip (SoC). The students will learn how to:

 specify, design, implement, and verify a system for a real life challenge.

 predict and manage system behaviour, from physical inputs through to software responses.

 put wireless smart nodes, containing embedded systems, into a manageable relationship with a global network, such as the Internet, and provide power efficient solutions for these nodes.

 manage embedded systems in an IoT context, where the communications protocol, their functions, and interfaces may change depending on use case.

 self-learning in a multi-disciplinary knowledgebase.

 design user friendly and reliable smart and sustainable systems that measurably enhance the quality and richness of the user’s life..

For specific information regarding modules, please refer to our Study Guide S7.

How will your course programme be recognised by your home university?

Fontys will provide you with a so-called ‘Transcript of Records’, which will clarify the results that you have achieved. Depending on your results, you will receive a maximum of 30 ECTS credits. ECTS credits are recognised throughout Europe. The agreement between your home university and Fontys University of Applied Sciences will usually include a condition whereby the credits that you obtain will be recognised and transferred into the records kept by your home university.

How to apply as an exchange student

Applications should always be submitted via the International Exchange (or Erasmus) Officer at the home university. If several versions of the programme are offered, please indicate for which version you would like to apply to (Programme I, Programme II, Programme III, etc.) This officer will send your application request (nomination) to Fontys. Once Fontys has accepted the application, your Fontys study department will send you a link to a web application called Mobility Online. Added to the link you will receive all necessary information and a manual. Please take a look at this website to see how it works.
