Why study Autonomous Systems at EIT Digital Master School?
Are you interested in an international career related to self-driving cars, robotics or artificial intelligence? The Master programme Autonomous Systems (AUS) is for you!
MSc Autonomous Systems is a combination of computer science and electronic engineering. In computer science, relevant skills include the Internet of Things (IoT), machine learning, artificial intelligence, and robot vision. In electronic engineering, relevant fields are automation, control, embedded systems, and communications.
The curriculum combines the technical major in Autonomous Systems (Technical major 75%) with a minor in Innovation & Entrepreneurship (I&E) (business minor 25%). You will learn how to bring innovation to the market and how to develop a successful business model. These additional entrepreneurial skills will give you your ticket to a successful career.
How is the programme structured?
