Robotics and Intelligent Systems, One/Two-Year Master's Programme

General

Program Description

Learn about state-of-the-art artificial intelligence and robotics together with some of Sweden's leading researchers. Our highly rated programme prepares you for advanced development and research in AI, self-driving cars, smart homes and more.

The International MSc programme in Robotics and Intelligent Systems gives you a computer science degree at the cutting edge of today’s research in AI and smart robots. Within the programme, you will 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 used by computers to make difficult choices or learn to recognise the patterns around them.

The first year is centred around a ”raise your robot” theme. From day 1, you get access to a robot kit, which you will give more and more skills as the courses within the programme progress.

The programme is embedded in Örebro University's Centre for Applied Autonomous Sensor Systems (AASS), which is one of Sweden's largest academic research centres in robotics and intelligent systems. We are internationally known for our cutting-edge research in the field.

Upon graduation, you will be able to work with advanced technologies such as decision support systems for the industry, autonomous vehicles, sensor systems, and in-home service robots. Our graduates have gone on to work at places as varied as MathWorks (mathematical computing software), DICE (video game developer) and Epiroc (advanced mining vehicles), and many have pursued a scientific research career.

Qualifications (degree awarded)

Degree of Master of Arts/Science [60 credits], Degree of Master of Arts/Science [120 credits]

Career

This degree provides the possibility to pursue an exciting career in industry as well as academia. Specialists capable of developing and maintaining complex intelligent systems are already much sought after and will become paramount in the future. With special focus on Robotics and Intelligent Systems, you can start a career as developer in advanced technologies such as unmanned vehicles, automation, computer vision and advanced AI software development. The Master's degree also makes you eligible for PhD studies for an academic career.

In particular during your thesis project work you will have the opportunity to interact with future employers. Many of our graduates have gone on to further positions within academia and within leading companies in the field (ABB, Mathworks, etc.)

Specific entry requirements
