Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.
The academic area of automation encompasses a variety of knowledge and skills involved with the automated control of different machines and systems. University programs usually have a general approach or focus on a particular specialization, such as industry applications or computer technology.
There are more than four thousand higher education organizations in Europe, from leading research institutions to small, teaching-focused universities. Europe itself is not as much different than other continents, reaching from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.

Future emerging technologies will provide both interactivity and intelligence. The master's programme in Intelligent Interactive Systems (IIS) addresses both trends, focusing on the design, analysis and development of agents and robots able to interact intelligently with humans and other agents, that is, agents that can perceive, plan, act, learn and communicate. The programme's lecturers are world-renowned scientists in the fields of... [+]
Intelligent systems and robots are expected to become an integral part of our daily lifes. In order to be accepted by and interact efficiently and naturally with humans, they have to adapt to changing environments and the users they interact with. Intelligent systems [+]
Intelligent systems and robots are expected to become an integral part of our daily lifes. In order to be accepted by, and interact efficiently and naturally with, humans, they have to adapt to changing environments and the users they interact with. Intelligent systems are expected to automatically acquire and manage knowledge through a variety of sensors and to learn and optimise their behaviour over time. This international Master's programme aims to provide students with the ability to create these intelligent adaptive systems and to prepare them for a future market, where intelligent and adaptive behaviour is considered the standard for computer systems.
As one of the few computer science programs in Germany that are taught completely in English, the Master course „Intelligent Adaptive Systems“ prepares students for international research and professional work. Following a balanced approach, it is placed in between programs with a purely technical focus and programs that offer a general computer science curriculum. Its curriculum is focused on the area of smart technology and intelligent adaptive systems and provides in-depth training in this area. The selected modules provide a comprehensive overview including technical aspects and state-of-the art algorithms and methods. Students are introduced to current research in the corresponding fields and have the opportunity to deepen the acquired knowledge by participating in international research projects. The Master in Intelligent Adaptive Systems is a 2-year research oriented programme that is taught in English. Students, both national and international, can profit from an international environment and improve their grasp... [-]
