Part of 4TU Stan Ackermans Institute, the Information and Communication Technology programme at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) trains designers in specifying, designing, building, testing and evaluating complex multidisciplinary systems in the domain of information and communication technology.

These systems are used in the important societal research themes of the TU/e Department of Electrical Engineering. 

The design of innovative consumer products and professional systems that communicate with their (global) environment (e.g. wireless and electro-optical communication) is extremely challenging. 

This leads to many new solutions, for example embedded software, monolithic integrated (opto-) electronic circuits in the field of telecommunication, medical applications and consumer products. 

The Information and Communication Technology programme at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e)   educates you in the design of systems that can process, store and convey information in every sense of the word. 

This programme includes describing and simulating circuit parts and designing and constructing system parts and components. In addition, the interaction between hard- and software is fully addressed.


After successfully completing all parts of the study programme students will receive a certified diploma. A certified PDEng has in-depth knowledge of design processes, theoretical as well as practical, which clearly distinguishes him/her from a ‘normal’ MSc. The ICT program trained (over 20 years now) more than 200 Technological Designers in Information and Communication Technology. They have found challenging and exciting jobs in (multi)national companies, including Philips, NXP Semiconductors, ASML, Océ, Ericsson, Infineon, TNO, Vodafone, and many Small to Medium-sized Enterprises (SME’s).
