Master in Intelligent Embedded Systems
About 99 per cent of all computers today are embedded – they are found in mobile phones, game consoles, digital cameras, cars, aeroplanes, medi- cal equipment, home appliances, robots, et cetera. These systems are getting more and more intelligent to meet the specific needs of their users. Intelligent embedded systems belong to the future – do you want to learn how to design them?
We offer a top-quality education in Intelligent Embedded Systems, with world-famous expert teachers, industrial student projects and internships, scholarships to study abroad, and a double-degree opportunity with a top-ranked research university. Course units feature state-of-the-art theory and practice in the fields of embedded systems, artificial intelligence and robotics. The practical part is organised as applied projects on real industrial equipment with some of the industrial partners, for example ABB and Ericsson. Industrial partners are actively involved in the programme and they provide quality assu- rance and industrial relevance of the programme.... [-]
This programme provides knowledge and skills in three key areas: project management, the use of IT in business, organisational and technological innovation, and the evaluation of IT in organisations. [+]
The programme targets students with a bachelor degree in informatics/information systems, business administration or computer science.
The role of information systems is strategic in a society where information is expected to be produced, co-produced, remediated, consumed, and seamlessly shared across an infinite amount of connected environments. From sensors to ambient devices, from smartphones to autonomous cars, information systems are ubiquitous and so commonplace that they have become somewhat invisible. When shopping, traveling, paying taxes or exercising our rights, we always rely on some digital infrastructure to smoothly and successfully support our actions.... [-]
Do you know your wireless communications, networking, and data analysis? We live in an increasingly on-line world, where not only people but also an increasing number of different machines and sensors are connected. Concepts that are becoming more frequent in both the mass media and specialised media include the internet of things, smart homes, the smart grid, the digitalization of industry and autonomous vehicles. [+]
To maintain and develop the high-tech industry around the world, engineers are needed who can both understand and develop communication solutions as well as having the methods to analyse and process the huge amounts of information that flow in various networks. To an increasing degree, this need will also be felt outside the traditional information and communications technology sector. Examples of such areas are the manufacturing industry, the motor vehicle industry and the new sector of companies based on cloud services.
This programme will prepare you for a future professional role by providing you with a broad basis and the opportunity for in-depth studies in the following areas... [-]
