In this lecture series, speakers from around the world will share their views on advanced topics in embedded systems design with the EMECS students. They will provide insights on the academic and industrial landscape of this field in their home countries. For EMECS students who are interested in pursuing a career in those countries, the invited scholars can also be valuable contact points.

The speakers come from both industry and academia. Some lectures are organized as single talks embedded in an existing course, other lectures are setup as additional courses for earning ECTS credits within the elective program.
