Program Description

Master in Robotics and Intelligent Systems

Örebro University

The international Master’s programme in robotics and intelligent systems is an exciting two-year programme for students with a Bachelor’s degree in engineering. The programme is offered by the nationally and internationally renowned Centre for Applied Autonomous Sensor Systems (AASS) at Örebro University.

Within the programme, students learn (among other things) about the methods used by autonomous vehicles to know where they are, how the navigation software on 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 programme 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 competencies 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 first year of the programme consists of courses providing research methodologies for intelligent system design, as well as a selection of advanced techniques for intelligent systems. Course contents include advanced artificial intelligence, robot control, multi-agent systems, methods for mapping and localisation, and more.

The optional second year is to a large degree focused on project work, deepening understanding of the theoretical methods and developing team and project skills.

The International Master's in Robotics and Intelligent Systems proposes an attractive curriculum which alternates both theory and practice in fields related to robotics and artificial intelligence. As a student, you will be immersed in one of Sweden's largest academic research centres in robotics and intelligent systems. During the course of the programme, you will get insights from, and the opportunity to contribute to, ongoing international research projects. The vision of the programme is to create a new generation of highly competitive research leaders, ready to engage in successful careers in modernised industry, service organisations or academia.

Qualifications (degree awarded)

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

Career

Specialists capable of developing and servicing complex intelligent systems are already much sought after and will become paramount in the future. This degree provides the possibility to pursue an exciting career in industry as well as academia. With a special focus on Robotics and Intelligent Systems, you can work in a career in advanced technologies, such as unmanned vehicles, automation industry, advanced computer software that includes computer vision and advanced artificial intelligence software development. The Master's degree makes you eligible for PhD studies and gives you the possibility to do an academic career. Many of our graduates have gone on to further positions within academia and within leading companies in the field (ABB, Mathworks, Atlas Copco, etc.)
