Electrical and Electronic Engineering S7- Electronic Systems

Gets hands-on with electronic systems in this Electrical and Electronic Engineering exchange programme. You'll get to work on real-life projects, experience state-of-the-art labs, and learn from industry experts, gearing you up to innovate and excel in the global electronics scene.

About the exchange programme

The Engineering minor is a program we offer to engineering students to widen their scope with several courses in the field of engineering, where the emphasis lies on developing knowledge and skills to design, build and sell an engineering product. Theory, practice and project work are alternated. Fontys is a University of Applied Sciences and therefore has a strong focus on hands on experience. Besides the practical aspects as part of the courses, the exchange program is complemented with a mandatory project of 10 ECTS, where multidisplinary collaboration, communication and hands on experience on real-life problems are essential. Incoming exchange students will be mixed with our regular third year students.

Why this programme?

  • Experience hands-on learning with real-world projects and cutting-edge laboratory facilities.
  • Gain insights from industry experts and a curriculum designed for global industry relevance.
  • Benefit from a vibrant international community, fostering networking and cross-cultural skills.


Content of the programme

This exchange programme is an advanced programme in the field of electrical and electronic engineering. This programme is designed to address the entire design challenge of embedded systems. The two mandatory courses for the Embedded Systems differentiation together with the two generic courses will give the students a solid software-focused design platform. The course work is deepened by a design project, where the knowledge and skills are put to use in the design of a prototype electronic system that addresses a real life challenge. Students choosing this differentiation will also be exposed to the field of processing architectures for electronic products covering embedded software, parallel processing, microcontrollers, as well as System on Chip (SoC).

The programme must include the project as it is essential to the way Fontys Engineering offers education. The student can choose among the other courses in line with his or her interest to complete the full program up to 30 ECTS.
