​​Solving problems and developing a working proof of concept is one of the goals in a research environment. Most companies, from SMEs to multinationals, have a dedicated Research and Development (R&D) department. Even though the importance of research is clear, it takes skilled engineers to apply their knowledge to new technology. A proof of concept or validation is crucial for the innovation and, therefore, is part of development.

In the field of sensor systems, many physical quantities are transformed into meaningful data. Embedded Software is key in most advanced sensors. Validating a sensor or sensor application often includes proper data analysis.

In this programme you will be confronted with a real-life issue. You will learn by experiencing first-hand which methods are required to tackle the problem in order to fulfil your clients' request.

Programme

​The programme combines both technical and non-technical knowledge. Based on previous studies and personal interests, a student has the option to exchange study units with those from other semesters within the Electrical and Electronic Engineering (major Sensor Technology) bachelor programme (ST).

The programme will simulate a R&D process, in which mixed groups will conduct a research project. Supporting study units will increase and enhance both the technical and non-technical knowledge in the field of R&D with respect to sensor applications.

NB: The programme is offered in Assen, a  town 30 km south of Groningen. It is possible to find accommodation in Assen, but not that many exchange students live there. If you want to be part of an international student community and make use of the many services / activities offered to students in Groningen, you could consider to live in Groningen and commute between Groningen and Assen (20 minutes by train). In that case you will have to take into account travel costs: a return ticket Groningen – Assen by train costs app. € 12 / day.
