In this paper we review the general motivation and principles for establishing system oriented MSc degree programs with focus on system level integration issues. The key thrust has been the close interaction between microelectronics, communication and multimedia techniques, and information systems. As a part of the curriculum renewal, an explicit need for recycling and retraining practicing engineers and teachers has been recognized as a standard operational mode for the future academic and industrial career. This has resulted in a re-evaluation of the balance between the fundamental issues and application specific issues as well as their time distribution and scheduling in the overall curriculum.
