Intelligent systems, such as smart homes or self-driving cars, will soon be an integral part of our life and is also an important competitive factor in service-oriented organizations and in industrial automation alike. Örebro University offers a highly rated international Master's Program, which gives insight into the cutting edge research in the field of robotics and intelligent systems.
Within the program, students learn (among other things) about the methods used by autonomous vehicles to know where they are, how the navigation software in your phone finds the best route, and the sensors that robots and intelligent systems use to perceive the world, as well as machine learning methods that can make computers make difficult choices or learn to recognise the patterns around them. The program offers two levels of graduation: a 60 credit Master of Science degree in Computer Science (one year), providing in-depth knowledge of advanced research topics and software engineering competences which can be readily applied to the job market; or a 120 credit Master of Science degree (two years), for those who wish to gain a higher degree of autonomy in problem solving and innovative thinking, possibly pursuing a career in research and development or academia. The second year is to a large degree focused on project work, deepening understanding of the theoretical methods and developing team and project skills.
Specific entry requirements
A first-cycle degree of at least 180 credits, with computer science as the main field of study, and at least 15 credits in mathematics (analysis and algebra). In addition, knowledge of English corresponding to the course "English B" or "English 6" from the Swedish Upper Secondary School is required.
