Master of Engineering Program in Information and Communication Technology for Embedded Systems (ICTES)      

 

In today's world, embedded systems are everywhere -- homes, offices, cars, factories, hospitals, plans and consumer electronics. Those key technologies are to bring us a true ubiquitous society. Their huge numbers and new complexity call for a new design approach based on understanding of system design on computational platforms, one that emphasizes algorithm design, platform design, hardware/software tradeoffs and real time design rather than low-level assembly-language programming and RTL or logic design.

An embedded systems designer needs to be a multidisciplinary engineer with software programming skills and a broad background in electronic engineering. They must know how to implement procedures to control the target system effectively. In addition to that, the important element in an embedded systems engineers career is the ability to manage projects of various complexities. The 1st year study of TAIST, ICTES program has launched in such a best environment that the advanced academic education is provided by either intensive lectures or distance learning leaded by a group of novel professors in Tokyo Inst. of Tech, supported by Thailand Sirindhorn International Institute of Technology (SIIT) and Kasetsart University (KU) professors. (Please refer a subject list of the course study) In addition, the practical research on ICTES has been performed as a project of National Electronics and Computer Technology Center (NECTEC), NSTDA, advised by TIT and Thai University Professors and NECTEC researchers.

Professional engineers are involved in creating the technology demanded by society to cater for its needs in consumer goods, medical equipment, transportation, communication and industrial tools. Graduates of ICTES program are likely to be employed in a diverse range of industries with a higher salary. Those, who want to study professional research, may enter into PhD courses in either Tokyo Institute of Technology, or Thai universities.
