Become an architect of intelligent sensor systems!

Smart systems are the future so get involved now! Sensor System Engineering is an exciting master's programme that teaches students to build and develop smart systems that are able to interact with their environment. Students will be able to move beyond simply generating data. They will actually be implementing intelligence at the point of data generation to enable smart interventions in response to changes in the environment. This master's programme will challenge you to always look beyond what is known to be possible.

You will work closely with fellow master students from all over the world, forming a tight, committed community. A dedicated staff of experienced lecturers and professionals in their field are ready to push you ahead: teaching you new skills and supporting and stimulating you to make the most of your time at our institute and acquiring the skills of a future engineer.

General knowledge about sensor applications

The first part of the master's programme gives you general knowledge about sensor applications. You will learn how to set up a sensor data system and how to analyse real-time data and data streams to make it smart. Courses are:

  • Introduction to Sensor Systems (5 ECs)
  • Applied Machine Learning (5 ECs)
  • Adaptive Filtering (5 ECs)
  • Data Centric Architectures (5 ECs)
  • Products and Services Design (5 ECs)

Furthermore, you can choose your specialisation direction and gain insight into the application of those smart systems in the health, energy or another high tech sector.

  • Sensor Applications Specialisation (5 ECs)

Additional content

Also, an important part of the study are courses like:

  • Professional skills (3 ECs)
  • Research skills (3 ECs)
  • Community contribution (2 ECs)
  • Ethics in Engineering (2 ECs)

to prepare you for the professional field.


In the second part you will focus on a research project at innovative companies or research institutes of your choice possibly Philips or the University Medical Center in Groningen (UMCG), etc.

  • Master thesis project (30 ECs)

​You can make a career in the health domain, energy domain or hightech systems, developing products and services that involve sensor innovations. 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 such as genome sequencing or seismic monitoring systems.
