This specialisation allows you to develop an advanced knowledge in signal processing, communications, digital systems and electronics. The specialisation has been designed around the common theme of embedded systems; special purpose computing systems designed for specific applications found in consumer electronics, transportation systems, medical equipment and sensor networks. The specialisation mixes theory and practice and contains a significant hands-on learning in laboratories and team-based design projects. The specialisation is suitable for new graduates, professionals and managers who are keen to upgrade their existing design and management skills as well as to develop advanced theoretical and applied knowledge in the area of electrical engineering.
