We describe the curriculum of a quite unique post-masters program at the Eindhoven University of Technology. This 2-years program is oriented towards the software engineering practice and puts special emphasis on the skills necessary for the development of embedded real-time systems. During the last 10 years, the program was very successful in providing the Dutch industry with highly skilled and motivated software engineers that are immediately deployable. Continuous process improvement is performed in order to adapt the curriculum to the needs of the industry and to improve the quality of the educational processes. The trainees are employees of the university and get a salary that enables them to have a reasonable living. In addition, the alumni usually get back their time-investment in form of a higher entrance level and a steeper career-path in comparison with alumni of the regular undergraduate programs
