MSc Signals and Systems

MSc Signals and Systems

Signal analysis and processing plays an important role in integrated electronic systems, being crucial to the acquisition of signals and the extraction and interpretation of the information the signals are presumed to carry. Signal processing is also used to interpret the nature of physical processes based on the observation of either a signal or the manner in which the process alters the characteristics of a signal. Electrical engineers who specialize in signals and systems design and develop electronic systems over a wide range of applications. Examples include the development of medical equipment, wireless communication systems, radar and remote-sensing systems, large antenna-arrays for radio astronomy, and control systems.

The Master of Science programme in Electrical Engineering at TU Delft offers the track Signals and Systems. In this MSc track, you will be trained to develop and apply theory and algorithms in the broad field of signal processing and system design. The programme offers you the possibility to specialize more specifically in any of several particular aspects of signal processing, including audio and acoustic signal processing, signal processing for communications, biomedical signal processing, signal processing for remote sensing and radar systems, and signal processing for control systems. When selecting courses and a graduation project, you can choose out of several specialisations. Graduation work can be done either at Delft University, or in industry and other (international) universities.


The Department of Microelectronics offers a number of scholarships which are available for students of proven excellence. These scholarships include:

  • Full tuition fees for the TU Delft MSc programme and contribution to living expenses for 2 years. To be considered for these scholarships, your complete application for the MSc programme needs to be uploaded before December 1st.

Apart from scholarships other forms of financial support exist. If their thesis project is carried out at a company, students usually receive a stipend that covers part of their living expenses. Also students can earn some money as part-time Teaching Assistants.
