Master of Science, Industrial IT, and Automation

HSN Science

What are the opportunities offered by cybernetics, and how can information from physical systems be utilized in a computer system? Become an expert in industrial IT and automation, and get an education that is both applicable and in demand!

Facts about the program

The master program in Industrial IT and Automation provides a broad knowledge in monitoring, control, and optimization of all types of technical and industrial systems based on cybernetic methods and computer engineering.

You will learn how to develop and apply mechanistic (physics-based) and statistical mathematical models for monitoring and control. You will learn to collect measurement data from sensors, store these in-process databases, and to program algorithms for the analysis of measurement data and calculation of control signals. Key programming tools are MATLAB, Python, LabVIEW, and various object-oriented languages.

The master program in Industrial IT and Automation introduces new technologies, as IoT (Internet of Things) and Industry 4.0, and focuses on open standards. We are working closely with industry on student projects and master theses. You will learn about:

  • Sensors and measurement systems
  • Data analysis
  • Computer program design and programming
  • System design
  • Automation systems
  • Mathematical modeling and simulation
  • Control algorithms
  • Advanced control, including model-based predictive control (MPC)

The program is taught in English and students come from many different countries. The study environment is student-friendly, with good facilities and good contact with teachers. You can conduct the study as a full-time student on campus or as a part-time student online.

Career

With an MSc degree in Industrial IT and Automation, you will get an education that is never outdated, and that qualifies for work in most areas of the private and public sectors. After graduation, you can work with the development of cybernetic systems in fields such as manufacturing, process industry, energy systems, vehicle control, building automation, or in the oil and gas industry. The master's degree is also eligible for doctoral studies at the University of Southeast Norway or at other universities and colleges in Norway and abroad.
