In 1999, experts form academia and industry met in a workshop dealing with education in Embedded Systems Design: at the time there were no specifically oriented programs, and an 'ideal' educational track was designed. One year later, that educational design was implemented with a one-year 'executive-type' Master at Università della Svizzera italiana, in Switzerland; over the years, the program blossomed and extended, with development of a two-year Master of Science program as well. The experience is discussed here; results and perspectives are analyzed.
