Professional education within AI
The School of Information Technology provides the programme “Data Analytics and Service Innovation based on Artificial Intelligence” (MAISTR). It is directed towards professionals who want to get continued education in Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies. The program has unique aspects by combining courses on both AI technology and courses on service design with AI.
CISCO Networking Academy
Halmstad University is a so-called Cisco Academy and provides instructor training and instructor support in cyber security within the framework of the Cisco Networking Academy.
Collaboration and Innovative lab environments
The two collaboration arenas Centre for Health Technology Halland and Electronics Centre in Halmstad, as well as the development lab Halmstad Intelligent Home, are organised under the School of Information Technology.

Centre for Health Technology Halland has its premises on the ground floor in A Building and Electronics Centre in Halmstad is in Z Building.
CERES is short for Computing and Electronics for Real-Time and Embedded Systems and is one of the School of Information Technology's two departments.
Technology Area Smart Electronic Systems
Technology Area Smart Electronics Systems focus on the challenges and opportunities that the ongoing digitisation of society entails. Embedded electronics are available in everything from smart everyday gadgets to robots and cars. Smart electronics are developing at a rapid pace and the possibility of new innovations is great.
We have ongoing research on antenna design, electromagnetic interference and compatibility, nanoelectronics and photonics, radar and radio systems, high performance computing architectures, and building practice for components and systems.

The Technology Area Smart Electronic Systems is responsible for carrying through and developing courses within electronics, radio communication, electromagnetic computation and physics.
Technology Area Leader: Pererik Andreasson
The Technology Area Smart Electronic Systems is closely connected to Electronics Centre in Halmstad and Rydberg Core Laboratory:
Technology Area System of Cyber Physical Systems
When the Internet of Things (IoT) contains sensors, it becomes an example of something called cyber physical systems (CPS), such as intelligent houses, smart electricity networks and intelligent transport systems. This is the focus of Technology Area Systems for Cyber Physical Systems.
We develop model-based methods that enable innovations within CPS. New methods are developed for specification, simulation and testing. Applications include robotics, transport systems and healthcare systems. Read more about the Technology Area's research under the research environment Embedded and Intelligent Systems (EIS):
The Technology Area is responsible for carrying through and developing courses within Computer Communication, Computer Science, Computer Systems Engineering, Parallel Architectures and Real-Time Systems.
Technology Area Leader: Wojciech Mostowski
During the period 2003 to 2015, research was conducted in this area at the Center for Research on Embedded Systems (CERES).
ISDD is short for Intelligent Systems and Digital Design and is one of the School of Information Technology's two departments.
Technology Area Digital Service Innovation
At Halmstad University, we profile Informatics towards Digital Service Innovation (DSI). This implies a focus on how value is created for users, organisations and societies through combining, re-combining and integrating resources into digital services.
The research in the field combines theories (identification of models, patterns, structures, relationships, processes) with applied and action-oriented research in collaboration with industrial and public partners. Read more about the Technology Area's research under the research environment Embedded and Intelligent Systems (EIS):
The Technology Area is responsible for and develops courses and programs in informatics at undergraduate, advanced and doctoral level:
- Enterprise Systems Programme (Bachelor programme in Swedish)
- Digital Design and Innovation (Bachelor programme)
- Digital Service Innovation (international Master programme)
- Doctoral education in informatics (within Information Technology)
Technology Area Leader: Magnus Bergquist
Staff within the inom Technology Area is listed on the page under the research environment Embedded and Intelligent Systems (EIS):
Technology Area Aware Intelligent Systems
The goal at the Technology Area Aware Intelligent Systems is to create systems that require less supervision and can handle unexpected situations. To do so, the systems must become more aware and develop themselves in order to be able to handle events that are unknown at the time of design.
Our research is carried out in close collaboration with industrial partners and is largely about development within artificial intelligence (AI). The focus is on creating systems that, as autonomously as possible, can be developed based on real-life data.
