Maryland Applied Graduate Engineering (MAGE) in the A. James Clark School of Engineering at the University of Maryland announces a new academic option today in Embedded Systems. Starting immediately, potential students can apply for the Professional Master of Engineering in Embedded Systems or the Graduate Certificate in Engineering in Embedded Systems program and may complete their coursework in-person at the University of Maryland campus in College Park, MD, online from anywhere in the world, or a hybrid of both methods of delivery, ensuring MAGE’s commitment to delivering a world-class education to working engineers all across the world. 

Embedded Systems at MAGE will explore the design and optimization of embedded software, embedded hardware, and networking and distributed systems. As with all MAGE academic options, the new specialization is designed for working engineers, with flexible class schedules and practical, hands-on instruction from faculty at the forefront of their industries. 

“As demand grows exponentially for complex government and industrial installations with embedded systems, as well as an expanding market of consumer electronics with dedicated computer systems, we also see an increased demand for trained engineers to design, optimize, and maintain these systems,” says Dr. George Syrmos, Assistant Dean for Continuing Education. “Our new program in Embedded Systems will equip working professionals with the knowledge and skills to forge exciting, new pathways within this growing discipline.” 

Also referred to as the Internet of Things, or IoT, embedded systems are computer systems contained inside of a larger mechanical or electronic system with a dedicated function. Embedded systems come in varying sizes, from smartwatches to refrigerators to spacecrafts, range from very simple to very complex, and may operate independently or as part of a larger network. 

With the addition of Embedded Systems, MAGE now offers Master of Engineering and Graduate Certificate in Engineering degrees in 17 academic options, with more than half also offered online, including Bioengineering, Cybersecurity, Energy Systems Engineering, Fire Protection Engineering, Project Management, Reliability, Robotics, Software, and Systems Engineering.
