Minor in Finnish: Elektroniset ja digitaaliset järjestelmät

Code: ELEC3061

Extent: 20 credits

Language: English

Teacher in charge: Mervi Paulasto-Kröckel and Simo Särkkä

Target group: All Aalto students

Prerequisites: No preliminary requirements – open for all Aalto students – but please note that all courses in this minor are at Master’s level and students should ensure that they have the necessary knowledge and skills before choosing this minor.

Content and structure of the minor

Electronic and Digital Systems (EDS) is a multidisciplinary major focusing on embedded systems and system level design especially for intelligent and autonomous devices and applications. It covers the chain from sensors small enough to enable smartdust, over autonomous embedded systems, up to data synthesis and real-time decision making for traditional industries as well as IoT and digitally based economies. EDS emphasizes the process of transferring results from fundamental studies into functional products and services.

Learning outcomes

Upon completion of the Minor, the student will be able to:

  • translate the electronic and digital systems application needs into technical requirements;
  • create product innovations based on holistic system level thinking;
  • apply embedded HW and SW design principles, understand their constraints, performance as well as environmental and safety impacts;
  • apply the design and fabrication principles and understand the basics of upscaling and lifecycle management of strongly miniaturized autonomous sensor and actuator systems;
  • apply methods for processing, analyzing and combining of data from sensors and sensor networks for generating higher level information
