Masters in Norway 2017. Master in Systems Engineering with Embedded Systems Systems Engineering is a widely recognized method for developing systems in industries such as automotive and oil, computers, network, communication, research and development. What is Systems Engineering Complex industry-projects require the participation from several professions. It is of paramount importance that all participants in such projects are using the same methodology, that they use a common language that everyone understands. Systems Engineering is an area of expertise where knowledge about how to develop complex products in the best way is gathered and developed. Methodology and systems thinking that puts us in position to master the complexity that is required to create good, reliable and safe products that the market is requesting will in the future be of vital importance for modern industrial production. Therefore, we have a desire to increase our capability to create new, advanced products that are within the requirements for functionality, reliability, safety and in the future also a long string of ever more important environmental requirements. What is Embedded Systems Most advanced industrial products today contain an increasing amount of computational power. This development of built-in computational power is what is called Embedded Systems. A common misunderstanding is that data power (computers) only exists in PC's. This is far from true. Computers come in a rich variety of types and sizes, and are often built into modern products to improve and expand the usefulness of the products for the humans that are using them. The... [-]

The oceans cover over 70 percent of the surface of the Earth. It is vital for communication, military and strategic uses and for its living and non-living natural resources. In recent years, there has been increasing importance on the marine biodiversity. The LL.M. programme aims to broaden the traditional approach to the Law of the Sea from jurisdictional issues to also include substantial law such as conservation and sustainable use of biological resources and protection of biodiversity and the environment. Although the programme of study has a clear global profile, it will also have a distinct Arctic dimension. Much of the Arctic consists of marine areas. Global climate change will increasingly subject these areas to various uses such as navigation, oil and gas exploitation, fisheries and research. The Arctic regions provide unique opportunities for studying both global and regional legal approaches to protect and preserve the marine environment. The research community in Tromsø is a world leader in marine Arctic issues, including natural sciences, history, political science and law. In addition to the University of Tromsø, the Norwegian Polar Institute is situated in Tromsø.
