This six-month module covers the following topics:

  • Complex mathematics
  • DC/AC networks
  • Network filters
  • Print design
  • Embedded software

Main Module: Embedded Hardware Engineering

This module will provide you with targeted training to become a hardware engineer. The following topics are covered:

  • Signal integrity: EMC, High-speed PCB Design, Analogue (filtering) and digital (DSB) signal processing, and ARM (32-bit controller).
  • Electronics: Interface electronics (incl. sensors), opamps, transistors switching, smart sensors (incl. practical training session)

This module is normally part of the HBO (Higher Vocational Education) programme in Electrical Engineering. Therefore, upon successful completion, you will receive a HBO certificate in Embedded Hardware.

Alongside your training courses, you will gain work experience at an organisation from our network. These organisations include high-tech companies that develop electronics. Some of them develop electronics for their own products, while others do project-based work for several clients at the same time. But they all have one thing in common: a passion for electronics and especially for Embedded Systems.

You will work on a range of projects and have various tasks. In the beginning there will be more of an emphasis on testing, but as your knowledge and experience grow, you will also develop products yourself. Examples include creating layouts, making diagrams and selecting components.

During this traineeship you can choose from the following soft skills and business skills training courses offered by Boertien Vergouwen Overduin. You and your fellow participants will complete a survey, and the top four courses will be selected based on the responses.
