Courses

In-company and open enrolment


TNO-ESI offers a variety of training courses for system engineers and architects that work in the area of high-tech system design.

  • Our courses are delivered in-company, tailored to your business context. We also offer them on an open enrolment basis. 
  • All courses are multi-disciplinary by nature and combine theory with practical training. Application of theory and reflection on the participant's own professional environment is part of the training. This requires training of both professional and personal skills.
  • Through analysis, presentations, peer discussions, and sharing of experiences, the cases will help students obtaining additional insight in the subject at large. This approach not only helps in gaining the required knowledge and insight in the topic at hand, but also ensures that the new knowledge can be applied to a student's own individual area of work.
  • The courses vary in range and scope. Some are concise and vary from 3 to 5-days courses, others are training programmes with a lead-time of up to one year and incorporate on-the-job training and coaching.

Blended format

We recently introduced a blended learning format in which we combine face-to-face with online learning activities. A blended learning format meets the demands for efficient learning and training for professionals, under the pressure of job duties. Blended learning can increase access and flexibility. The online part allows particpants to learn at their own pace and at any time, completing modules over a number of days or weeks, anywhere around the world. 

The first course we offer in this format is the course 'Architecting for Business Value', addressing the fundamental aspects of architecting for developing high-tech embedded systems.

Please find below a small selection of online lectures in this course:
