Master's programme in Intelligent Embedded Systems
In this programme you learn how to design intelligent embedded systems that are safe, reliable and can learn from and adapt to their surroundings. After your studies you can work as an engineer, project manager, system architect or programmer, system architect, embedded systems programmer or a researcher in the areas of robotics, telecommunications, process control, home electronics and car industry.
Being involved in such projects was very valuable, partly because we were able to test real-life projects, which gave an insight into working life, and partly because we got a big network of contacts for working life.
The courses in this programme embrace the latest theory and practice within the areas of embedded systems, artificial intelligence and robotics. To guarantee that you obtain skills requested by the industry, the content is developed together with companies and your teachers are world-leading researchers within the field.
The theoretical parts are interspersed with practical parts that are done in collaboration with companies in the industry, such as ABB, Alstom, Ericsson and Volvo Construction Equipment. The collaboration involves guest lectures, student projects, mentoring and internships. In addition, you have the opportunity to use corporate equipment from some of our business partners.
The University has several exchange agreements and some of them also give you the opportunity to obtain a double master's degree.
