9 Free Master’s in Software Engineering and Embedded Systems in Europe

Updated on June 8, 2017

Software is used to control many aspects of the modern world, ranging from medical devices, nuclear power plants and airlines to Google and Amazon. It is valuable in developing software for prosthetic limbs to improve mobility or write the code for the next breakthrough in mobile communications. Software engineering makes the complex systems possible, safe and reliable.

Embedded systems are combinations of hardware and software. The purpose of embedded systems is to control a device, a process, or a larger system. Specific examples of embedded systems include those controlling the structural units of a car, the automatic pilot and avionics of aircrafts, telematics systems for traffic control, the chip set and software within a set-top box for digital TV, a pacemaker, chips within telecom switching equipment; ambient devices, and control systems embedded in nuclear reactors.

Tuition-free European countries like Germany and Norway offer international students the opportunity to earn a master's degree in Software Engineering and Embedded Systems, in English, irrespective of their country of origin, for free. International students can study for free and also get the opportunity to travel around Europe, learn a new language, and make some lifelong friends. It's amazing that this free education is extended even to non-EU students.

9) TU Darmstadt---Master in Distributed Software Systems

The Master in Distributed Software Systems will in particular help you to gain the necessary knowledge and skills to develop highest-quality business applications. That is, you will learn how to develop business applications that are scalable, flexible, secure and reliable. These applications will enable the secure and reliable exchange of data between widely distributed locations while satisfying requirements imposed by (foreign) laws. You will also learn how to develop the applications such that they can be adapted to changing external conditions – in a controlled way – to meet the demand of the future.
