Embedded Systems Engineering is a career for the future. Your skills are needed for the creation of smart, user-friendly machines and devices. Become an embedded systems engineer and help shape our future.

Career Options with an Embedded Systems Engineering Degree | HAN University of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands


With a bachelor degree in Embedded Systems Engineering you can find jobs in the commercial and public sector. For example, in product manufacturing, at research institutes or with partners in the field of engineering. Here are some embedded systems engineering jobs you could pursue:

  • Software/hardware developer

    As a software/hardware developer, you develop innovative electronic products. More specifically, the electronic software and hardware for these products. You do this using microcontrollers. Customer requirements and specifications are crucial. Your teammates are other engineers and professionals from other disciplines.

  • Service engineer

    As a service engineer, you solve problems on-site and propose and implement technical improvements to prevent future failures. Is there a malfunction, for example in a wind farm? As a service engineer you professionally solve the problem on site. And you also proactively propose technical improvements.

  • Technical advisor

    As a technical advisor you "interpret" data, making it usable for others. For example, the police want to request camera images of a particular time or location. Or filter specific information from camera images. Both require different ways of processing data. Your advisory and programming skills make it all possible.

The next step after graduating

So now you have your Bachelor in Embedded Systems Engineering. The next step? Finding a job is simple.
