Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree in Smart Systems Integration

General

3 locations available

Program Description

Smart systems, integrated from microsystems and microelectronics, combine data processing with multi-modal sensing, actuation and communication functions. Examples are self-driving cars, artificial organs, the Internet of Things (IoT) and wellness armbands, ubiquitous in all sectors of society including healthcare, transport, environment protection, energy, and security.

Do you want to study for a 2-year Joint Master of Science in 3 countries?

  • Industry focussed programme
  • Taught by subject experts in each country
  • Extensive lab and practical work (>30%)
  • International and industrial internship opportunities
  • Ready for employment and further academic study after graduation
  • 50% of international students remain in Europe after study

The Joint International Master in Smart Systems Integration is a European MSc Programme provided jointly by three universities, Heriot-Watt University (UK), University of South-Eastern Norway (Norway) and Budapest University of Technology and Economics (Hungary). It is a unique, two-year, 120 ECTS master programme based on the complementary expertise and laboratory facilities of the three universities.

The students learn all the fundamental aspects of design, manufacturing, packaging and applications of MEMS and sensors, smart systems and IoT. They have the opportunity to choose smart systems specialization in Smart Biomedical Systems or Cyber-physical Systems. The students will learn industry-standard design (EDA) tools for microelectronics, MEMS and their integration to create complete smart systems with integrated sensing, actuating and signal processing functionalities. The curriculum is designed to provide the students with industry-relevant skills with >30% lab and practical work, and other transferable skills such as report writing, entrepreneurship and European society.

The master programme is complemented by guest lectures from visiting scholars and industrial speakers. In addition, there are international and industrial internship opportunities in the joint master programme.

Funding

The fees are €7950 a year for international students and €4250 a year for EU students, inclusive of insurance and summer school.

Entry qualifications

Good Bachelor's degree in electrical engineering, electronics, mechatronics, computer engineering, physics or a closely related discipline.

Heriot-Watt University (HWU) provides the fundamental concepts of smart systems during the first semester, giving courses from a programme awarded the Eurotraining Quality Label. Practical work will take place in the cleanroom for the students to learn and practice photolithography, a fundamental process in microfabrication for manufacturing of MEMS and sensors. Other labs such as laser machining and 3D printing will be used to support the study of alternative methods for the manufacturing of smart systems. Read less
