Embedded systems are an essential part of the modern society. They control the material world inside vehicles, buildings, machinery, industrial processes, domestic appliances, and every smart system interacting with the environment. Embedded systems integrate electronics and software with the controlled system and the development requires expertise in both areas.

Embedded Systems programme offers a full set of courses on electronics design and software engineering including microcontrollers, digital design, low level software, electronics manufacturing technologies and productization of embedded systems.

As a student, we expect you to know the basics of electronics, microcontrollers, and programming. Having prior education in related areas such as computer networks, wireless communications, power electronics, robotics, or industrial automation is recommended.

After completing the programme, you will be qualified to pursue a wide range of career opportunities in different fields of embedded systems design. You will have the knowledge and skills to pursue a career in industry or continue your studies towards a doctorate. Tampere region has very strong industrial cluster in intelligent machines, embedded systems, and telecommunications.
