Master's Programme (120 credits) in Embedded and Intelligent Systems

120 credits

This is an education for students wanting technical specialist competence, research experience and good career opportunities after their education.

About the education

This programme requires a previous education in the electrical, computer or mechatronical engineering fields or in the information and communication technology fields. 

During the studies you will be in direct connection with the University’s research since the teaching is carried on by active researchers. Many of the courses are project based and give the opportunity to study international research. The thesis work is done in the third and fourth semesters. Most students then cooperate with one of our research groups, in many cases with industrial connection.

By the choice of courses, the student has the option to focus on the either embedded systemsor intelligent systems.
