Students with engineering, electronics and communications backgrounds often decide to further their studies by pursuing a master’s degree in automation. Some engineering students want to take the next step from undergraduate studies toward a doctorate. Other students use this graduate program to further focus their studies in engineering with courses that will advance their specific career interests in automation and robotics.
What is a Master in Automation? This graduate degree is a bridge to a career in automation engineering or to doctorate studies in automation and robotics. Engineers in robotics are in high demand, and the field is expected to expand. Students who enter this program will research robotics and how mechanization can be applied to processes in fields such as retail, transportation, manufacturing, medicine and aeronautics. This program includes a heavy focus on development projects and training to build robotics.
Undergraduates interested in robotics and engineering benefit from a Master in Automation by sharpening their engineering skills with a more specific focus in robot technologies. This program offers in-depth automation design and development training, useful for advanced positions in industries that rely on mechanization. It also prepares engineers with undergraduate degrees for doctoral work in automated machines.
The cost of the master’s program depends on the institution. The program usually takes between one and three years to complete. Students interested in pursuing this coursework should thoroughly research each institution to find a program that fits their financial and course length requirements.
As engineers in the robotics field are in high demand, students who successfully complete coursework in automation will have a wide variety of career choices. Graduates may choose to enter research and development positions, or manage automation in factories, transportation systems, large-scale construction projects, military projects or aeronautics and space programs. Automation engineers design and manage robots that assist humans, perform life-saving tasks in dangerous situations, build ships, control traffic and fly unmanned crafts, among many other revolutionary applications.
Interested students will find several international programs that offer a graduate degree in automation in our extensive database. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

TRACK: CONTROL OF SYSTEMS
The aim of this track is to present the most recent results in modern control theory including application of optimization methods in control system design. Analysis and design of nonlinear control systems and structural approach to control will be given. An important topic of the track are advanced industrial control techniques, mainly structures and algorithms of linear and nonlinear model-based predictive control. These are presented within a general framework of a multilayer control structure, consisting of basic control, advanced control and set-point optimization layers.. ... [-]

The scientific discipline of Machine Learning focuses on developing algorithms to find patterns or make predictions from empirical data. The discipline is increasingly used by many professions and industries (for example manufacturing, retail, medicine, finance, robotics, telecommunications), as it can help create order in large amounts of digital data to solve difficult problems such as understanding human behaviour and providing efficient resource allocation. Demand for graduates with substantive expertise in machine learning far exceeds supply. The programme here at KTH equips you for a career in industry (a start-up or a traditional well-established company) and will also prepare you for further studies at PhD-level. [+]
