Are you open minded, do you like to stretch boundaries to find out what is out there? Can you apply yourself, developing new ways to move the technology ahead, specifically in the health domain? Then take a moment to consider the opportunity to join us for one year to complete the Sensor System Engineering (SSE) honours master’s programme.​​​

Programme structure

Semester 1

Linear algebra (4 ECTS): mathematics required for the next modules.
Advanced data analysis (4 ECTS): integrating data coming from multiple complex sensors and to interpret this data correctly
Modelling & simulation (4 ECTS): theory and tools required to model complex systems and to analyse and represent simulated data.
Data centric architectures (4 ECTS): the architectural design of sensor systems at the level of of system architectures for big data applications and at the level of digital signal processing (DSP).

Products and services in Health (4 ECTS): using real cases to learn the full design process of a health related sensor system.
Sensor applications in Health (3 ECTS): exploration of sensor applications in biology, technology, diagnostics and application in health environments like hospital and home care.
Professional skills (3 ECTS): learning to excel in the professional fi eld by developing essential professional, non-technical skills.
Research & ethics (5 ECTS): learning necessary research skills as well as the ability to reflect on ethical issues.
Community contribution (1 ECTS): forming a network for the students to help them solve particular problems in a multidisciplinary setting.

Semester 2
A six month research project in the domain of sensor technology and health in industry, a research institute or university department, resulting in a master’s thesis.

Career opportunities

As a Master of Engineering you will qualify for a variety of jobs in the following domains. You can make a career in the health domain, developing products and services that involve sensor innovations for medical devices, domotics and home care. Another promising career move is to apply for a job in the technology domain, where you will develop technical sensor applications. A scientific research environment is another great place for you as a master. Here you will work alongside scientists who are focused on high tech research projects as genome sequencing or seismic monitoring systems.
