This master prepares you for a bright future in the fascinating world of advanced sensor applications. A domain that is rapidly growing, providing all kinds of interesting prospects for you, ambitious engineers. Within the globally important domain of health, sensor applications will provide totally new ways to monitor, heal, treat and care for people.

Sensors affect and benefit the lives of billions of people world-wide. Healthcare is one of the main areas where the innovative applications of sensors becomes increasingly important. Quite a promising prospect for you as a future sensor specialist, with expertise in said area.

Programme structure

First semester

General knowledge about sensor applications needed for any type of specialization.

Linear algebra (5 ECs): mathematics required for the next modules.
Advanced data analysis (5 ECs): theory and tools required to model complex systems and to analyse and represent simulated data.
Modelling & simulation (5 ECs): applied statistics, nonlinear differential equations and high dimensional data sets.
Data centric architectures (5 ECs): training in architectural design at two conceptual levels.
Specialised knowledge involving sensors in the health domain
Products and services in Health (5 ECs): learning the full design process, based upon cases from the domain of Health.
Sensor applications in Health ((5 ECs): exploration of sensor applications in biology, technology, diagnostics and application in health environments like hospital and home care.
Second semester

Master thesis project (30 ECs): an applied research project in industry, a research institute or university department of six months, resulting in a master thesis.

Honours content

Professional skills (3 ECs): learning to excel in the professional field by developing essential professional, non-technical skills.
Research & ethics (5 ECs): learning necessary research skills as well as the ability to reflect on ethical issues.
Community contribution (2 ECs): forming a network for the students to help them solve particular problems in a multidisciplinary setting.

Career opportunities

As a Master of Engineering you will qualify for a variety of jobs in the following domains.
