Embedded Systems

Master of Science | Language of instruction: English

This field of study provides specific knowledge to work with programmable structures extending into parallel and distributed systems, computer networks and cryptography. Teaching emphasizes the balance of courses providing the necessary theoretical basis and courses focusing on practical skills that are involved in the design, implementation, analysis, testing and operation of embedded systems. An integral part of the study is also working on a project with a small team and oriented towards experimental and prototype solutions to interesting problems associated with the solution of practical problems arising from research and development activities of the faculty.

Design and Architecture of Digital Systems Laboratory

Note: At FI, laboratories and research groups aren´t organized in a way that would correspond to a particular study programme. Various topics are intertwined and research responds to the development of informatics.

Embedded Systems Growth

The importance of embedded systems is growing continuously. For example:

  • In 2003, there was an average of 8 billion embedded programmable components worldwide. Conservative estimates suggest a tripling of this figure in 2015 or 3 embedded devices for every person on Earth.
  • In automotive industry, electronics are an increasing fraction of a vehicle’s value from 22% in 1997 to 40–60% in 2015.
