Education

The Department of Microelectronics heavily participates in the education curriculum at the faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, and Computer Science. The faculty and scientific staff of ME are strongly involved in the teaching activities of the Bachelor of Science (BSc) programme in Electrical Engineering and the three Master of Science (MSc) programmes of Microelectronics, Telecommunication and Sensing Systems, and Signals and Systems.

The Bachelor programme in Electrical Engineering provides broad, solid expertise, allowing students to enroll in 23 different MSc programmes. Among these, the three MSc tracks offered at Microelectronics are among the most popular ones.

Over the past decade, our MSc programs have attracted talented students from around the world to The Netherlands. A majority of students finds permanent employment with companies we collaborate with upon graduation or after completing post-graduate or doctoral research in joint projects with local firms. Among the employers are NXP, TNO, Philips, Siemens, ASML, Nuon, and ICT and Telecom companies.
