digital technology engineering

The Master of Science (MSc) in Digital Technology Engineering is a 2-year program offered by Fontys University of Applied Sciences. This program is for ambitious Bachelor's students in engineering, ICT, or Applied Sciences who aspires to have a career in a broader role. See the full list of requirements here.

You will specialize in Digital Technologies and learn more about technical areas like statistics, data analysis, machine learning, software and hardware, artificial intelligence, and digital product development. In addition, you become a professional who can consider product development from a systems engineering perspective and approach a new design problem efficiently.

At Pulsed, you become an engineer who can go beyond the obvious while crossing disciplines like engineering, digital technology, business, and design. You can oversee the whole process of product development, product integration, business development, and organizational processes. We call it the role of "the engineer of the future" because it prepares you for jobs that contribute to a rapidly changing society by driving digital transformation.

No pre-Master required.
