Information Systems

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

Information systems is a field of study that teaches students the most important elements of both business and computer science to prepare them for a field in several industries, including those with large mega-corporations, private market analyst positions and even important government jobs.

Norway, officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a Scandinavian unitary constitutional monarchy whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula, Jan Mayen, the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard and the subantarctic Bouvet Island. Higher education in Norway is offered by a range of seven universities.

Masters in Information Systems in Bodø in Norway. Master in Systems Engineering The Master program in Systems Engineering at NISE is a unique program in Norway due to the close and committed collaboration with international and leading high-technology companies. We collaborate with our industry partners and offer internships in a variety of businesses! You can also study the Master's program in Systems Engineering part time if you already work in a company or you can study single courses (with or without study points) if you are interested in learning more about Systems Engineering and Subsea. This is Systems Engineering Systems Engineering is a recognized method for developing systems in the automotive and oil industry, in computing, networking, communication and R&D. With a Master's Degree in Systems Engineering you will be eligible to participate in and lead the development of large complex products and systems that require involvement of many disciplines. Norwegian Institute for Systems Engineering (NISE) Was established by the joint efforts of Norwegian Center of Expertise-System Engineering (NCE SE) and Buskerud University College (from 2016 University College of Southeast-Norway). NISE is organized as a department within the Faculty of Technology in Kongsberg. NISE’s most important task is to contribute to enhancing the technical collaboration between research institutions and the technology companies in NCE SE. By collaborating with the leading international research and development (R&D) university - Stevens Institute of Technology (SIT), NISE offers the expert knowledge in Systems Engineering associated with important technology disciplines such as materials, mechatronics, requirements management and industrial domains especially in Subsea. SIT has been the model for establishing NISE with USN since 2006. Some SIT professors have part-time teaching and research obligations with NISE. What type of job will I get You will be attractive on the labor market with a master's degree in Systems Engineering. Since the program is a partnership between the University College and a number of high - technology companies, job opportunities are good and many of our students continue to work in the same company as they work through the program. As you study, you will work as an engineer within the discipline of your bachelor's degree. Throughout this program you will acquire knowledge on how to manage small and / or large complex systems - 'you will get a global view!' This is what you will learn The Master Program in Systems Engineering consists of both mandatory and elective courses. Take a look at the study plan for an overview of the courses studied during the different semesters. Mandatory courses: SEFS 6102 Fundamentals in Systems Engineering SEAD 6102 System Architecture and Design SEPM 6102 Project Management for Complex Systems SESI 6201 Systems Integration Elective courses In addition to the mandatory courses in Systems Engineering, you will specialize in a subject area through a choice of elective courses. The subject you choose to specialize in depends on your current area of expertise, your current job, the needs of your employer and your future plans. These areas are available for specialization: Control and Signal Processing Product Development Embedded Systems Systems Engineering Subsea Engineering Study part of your degree abroad The University College has an agreement with Stevens Institute of Technology (SIT) i New Jersey, USA and most of our full time students choose to study 4th semester there. SIT offer most of their masters courses as intensive courses meaning you can travel New Jersey for a shorter period before returning home to work on the assesment. [-]

Master in Systems Engineering with Embedded Systems

Campus Full time 4 semesters January 2017 Norway Bodø

Systems Engineering is a widely recognized method for developing systems in industries such as automotive and oil, computers, network, communication, research and development. [+]

Master in Systems Engineering with Embedded Systems Systems Engineering is a widely recognized method for developing systems in industries such as automotive and oil, computers, network, communication, research and development. What is Systems Engineering Complex industry-projects require the participation from several professions. It is of paramount importance that all participants in such projects are using the same methodology, that they use a common language that everyone understands. Systems Engineering is an area of expertise where knowledge about how to develop complex products in the best way is gathered and developed. Methodology and systems thinking that puts us in position to master the complexity that is required to create good, reliable and safe products that the market is requesting will in the future be of vital importance for modern industrial production. Therefore, we have a desire to increase our capability to create new, advanced products that are within the requirements for functionality, reliability, safety and in the future also a long string of ever more important environmental requirements. What is Embedded Systems Most advanced industrial products today contain an increasing amount of computational power. This development of built-in computational power is what is called Embedded Systems. A common misunderstanding is that data power (computers) only exists in PC's. This is far from true. Computers come in a rich variety of types and sizes, and are often built into modern products to improve and expand the usefulness of the products for the humans that are using them. The complexity also is expanding as we are putting higher demands on the systems. This reality is what we wish to prepare our students for in our master program. A prime example of a product with steady increase in functionality is the automobile. Today we can find 25-30 computers in an ordinary car. The more advanced and expensive cars can have far more. All these computers need to be programmed and linked with the mechanical and electrical systems of the car. The list of functions keeps increasing as new cars are put on the market. Embedded systems is dealing with supplying the computational power that is needed, and ensuring that the equipment works as intended. About the program This program is a 2-year full time program. While USN have other master programs that include part time employment in local industry, this is not a part of the program in Systems Engineering with Embedded Systems. We do however have close cooperation with local industry in the Kongsberg area. In their last semester, our students have the opportunity to do their master thesis in cooperation with our industrial partners. Systems Engineering with Embedded Systems has in-depth courses in Embedded Systems and will also have a minor in Systems Engineering. This means that the students will be enabled to develop hardware and software based applications and understands how these will work in a Systems Engineering context. A unique master This 2-year program is unique, also in international context. Project work is used extensively through the program. The lectures and also all literature are in English, something that has led to an increasing interest from international students. [-]
