Education

TU/e Bachelor College

Within the Bachelor College we have a dedicated High Tech Systems Design series of three elective courses (total 15 cp). In addition, the USE elective course series on Robotics is strongly related to the HTSC ambition and focus.

TU/e Graduate school

Master's program

The core of the post-bachelor education program for high-tech systems engineers is formed by the disciplinary MSc programs in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Applied Physics and Computer Science, complemented by the multidisciplinary MSc program in Systems and Control, all of which are given in the TU/e Graduate School.

These current programs offer excellent opportunities to develop the necessary scientific and engineering skills for a successful career in the high-tech systems sector.

A special cross-disciplinary honors program in High Tech Systems will be set up to enable top Master’s students in any of the above MSc programs to acquire special enhanced and additional skills in scientific, engineering or managerial aspects of high-tech systems engineering.

PDEng program Mechatronic Systems Design 

This new two-year PDEng program Mechatronic Systems Design (MSD), established end 2015, educates highly skilled design engineers for the high-tech systems industry. The program follows the structure of a 12 months cross-disciplinary educational training, followed by a 12 months design and development project in industry and/or within the scope of already defined HTSC research projects. Under the guidance of experienced professionals, trainees participate in a multidisciplinary project in a leading Dutch company.

PDEng trainees learn to translate academic developments in the High Tech Systems sector into real-life applications and industrial products to meet the industry’s demand for new technologies. A PDEng position offers an application-focused track that is complementary to the research-oriented PhD programs and provides trainees with a strong base to make an accelerated start in an industrial career.

PhD programs

PhD students will be part of the TU/e Graduate School in which the educational part of the research programs is coordinated. Research-oriented education is provided by existing national research schools such as DISC (Dutch Institute of Systems and Control), EM (Engineering Mechanics), JMBC (J.M. Burgerscentrum – Research School for Fluid Mechanics), and IPA (Institute for Programming research and Algorithmics). A new course for systems engineering will be provided for all PhD students.
