EngD Information and Communication Technology
TU/e offers two-year post-master EngD programs. As a EngD trainee, you will have the status of a TU/e employee. During the traineeship you follow an individual program consisting of courses, assessments and (industrial) projects. In addition, you will carry out a design project, preferably in industry. This project takes 15 months and is spread over two years.
ICT TRACK WITHIN THE DESIGN OF ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING SYSTEMS (DEES) PROGRAM
Within the Design of Electrical Engineering Systems (DEES) program we offer two EngD tracks:
• Information and Communication Technology (ICT)
• Healthcare System Design (HSD)
The ICT program trains designers in specifying, designing, building, testing and evaluating complex multidisciplinary systems in the domain of information and communication technology. These systems are used in the important societal research themes of the TU/e Department of Electrical Engineering. The design of innovative consumer products and professional systems that communicate with their (global) environment (e.g. wireless and electro-optical communication) is extremely challenging. This leads to many new solutions, for example embedded software, monolithic integrated (opto-) electronic circuits in the field of telecommunication, medical applications and consumer products. The ICT programme educates you in the design of systems that can process, store and convey information in every sense of the word. This programme includes describing and simulating circuit parts and designing and constructing system parts and components. In addition, the interaction between hard- and software is fully addressed.
The EngD programs lead to a Professional Doctorate in Engineering (EngD degree). All EngD programs are given under the banner of the 4TU.School for Technological Design, Stan Ackermans Institute. This institute is a collaboration between the four technological universities in the Netherlands.
This program is recognized as a EngD program by the CCTO, the Dutch certification institute for technological EngD programs.
