Masters 2016/2017 in Kristianstad Sweden. An embedded system is a computer system designed for specific control functions within a larger system, often with real-time computing constraints. The embedded systems can be found in numerous products and they are playing an ever-increasing role in our society. The programme provides theoretical as well as practical aspects of the development of embedded systems. Special focus is on the integration of software and hardware components. Based on the concepts of Signal Processing, Wireless Communications and Ubiquitous Computing you will develop a distributed embedded system with good performance and security. Embedded systems are widespread in the world, in consumer, industrial, commercial and military applications. Microprocessors are fast becoming ubiquitous, and many of the commonplace gadgets in your house and car rely on them. After this education you can work in industries as an embedded system developer as well as in research. The studies are full time and consist of lectures, exercises and laboratory experiments. In one of the courses you work in a team to develop knowledge and understanding of the development of embedded systems. Overall educational goals The one-year Master’s programme is to provide students with the knowledge and skills required to develop embedded systems individually and in groups.

You will acquire an ability to identify, define and discuss the potential impacts human activities have on the various aquatic ecosystems, as well as a capacity to identify, formulate and make a case for suitable water management in both developed and developing economies. You will use both ecological and engineering principles in developing prevention, mitigation and restoration measures that take into consideration socio-economical and public health issues. How? You will deal with problem solving and interdisciplinary cooperation on a daily basis. You will be immersed in a multi-cultural and multi-ethnic environment (over 12 nationalities have so far attended this programme). We use a learning-by-doing approach, so you will have "hands-on" field and laboratory projects, seminar-based discussions and mini-workshops where you will present your own work or that of your team.
