|Module consists of the study units|
This module consists of several study units, every part has its own learning objectives.|
The study units are:
||Electronic System Design (module)
||Electronic System Design & Prototyping
||Embedded Signal Processing
This is a T-shaped module with both a deepening of the electrical engineering knowledge through “Embedded Signal Processing” as well as a broadening of the knowledge in the fields of “System Engineering” and “Philosophy of Technology and Design” and their applications through a “Prototyping Project”. It also provides for an introduction to the bachelor project (M12) through writing a “Survey Paper”. In a bit more detail:
Electronic System Design & Prototyping consists of three elements:
- The Survey Paper aims to practice finding and discussing scientific literature relevant to a given research question, thus preparing for the Bachelor thesis, as well as being useful for the Prototyping Project.
- Embedded Signal Processing dives into processing aspects for radio signal conditioning, analog-to-digital converters, and clock generation. It treats the trade-offs between analog and digital signal processing and its partitioning aspects. The theory is tested with an exam, while labs and a project serve to apply the theory for more understanding and investigating the tradeoffs.

- Philosophy of Technology and Design extends the design of a technical product to beyond the purely technical realm by focusing on the relation between technical products and their users using the process of Design Thinking. The theory and techniques are applied to the prototyping project.
- Systems Engineering focuses on the technical design and architecture of complex systems, using various thinking tracks and system design tools. The theory and techniques are applied to the prototyping project.
- In the Prototyping Project, a complex electronic system is designed with a big team, and an actual working prototype is constructed. Knowledge from all bachelor courses, in particular the other elements of this module, are applied to achieve this.
