EIT DIGITAL MSC PROGRAMME: EMBEDDED SYSTEMS

Embedded systems are everywhere! Applications include a wide variety of industrial and personal smart systems such as robots, cars, airplanes, satellites, elevators, mobile phones, home appliances, and health-care equipment, to mention a few. In these areas, embedded intelligence confer added value to the products by either extending the range of the delivered functionalities or enhancing the quality of the functionalities rendered to the user.

SPECIAL ASPECTS OF EMBEDDED SYSTEMS AT BME-VIK

BME-VIK offers Critical Embedded Systems, a specialization on embedded systems for which safety, reliability, fault tolerance, availability, and reaction time are crucial. Among many fields, this includes the automotive industry (engine management, safety systems, advanced driver assistance systems, etc.), railway control, aerospace industry, medical instrumentation. The specialization provides skills for designing complex systems, designing components of the systems, for verification and validation, and also for operation and maintenance of the system.
Students can select a branch from a set of different areas of critical systems, based on their interest. It includes hardware and software verification and validation, design paradigms for safety-critical applications like automotive embedded systems or medical applications.

COMPLETING THE OTHER YEAR

The studies at BME-VIK are in the exit year of the programme. The entry year can be performed at one of the following Universities or Institutes: Eindhoven University of Technology (TUE), The NetherlandsKTH Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), SwedenTechnical University of Berlin (TUB), GermanyUniversity of Bologna (UNIBO), ItalyUniversity of Turku (UTU), Finland.

SUBJECTS AND LEADING TEACHERS

Prof. Tamás Dabóczi is Head of the Department of Measurement and Information Systems, Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Budapest, Hungary. Besides coordinating the EIT Digital Master School Critical Embedded Systems specialization, he has been involved in developing four new Embedded Systems (ES) specializations both at BSc and MSc level in the past years. He teaches Real-time systems, Embedded and ambient systems, and Information processing within ES tracks.

INDUSTRIAL PARTNERS

There is strong cooperation with the industry in the field of dependable embedded systems. The most appropriate link to this cooperation is the thesis work at industrial partners. Many big automotive research centers and other embedded system developers reside in Budapest, like:
