Master's programme in Intelligent Embedded Systems, 120 credits

Around 99 percent of all computers today are embedded and are found in mobile phones, game consoles, digital cameras, cars, aeroplanes, medical equipment, home electronics and robots. These systems are becoming increasingly more intelligent in order to satisfy the users' specific needs. Intelligent embedded systems belong to the future and here you can learn how to design them.

The programme

The Master’s programme in Intelligent Embedded Systems is a two-year programme at second-cycle level. The programme comprises of both a project part, in cooperation with industry, and a theoretical part. The courses in the programme embrace the latest theory and practice within the areas of embedded systems, artificial intelligence and robotics.

The programme has world-leading experts as teachers, study projects and work placement at companies, as well as scholarships for studying abroad. We have an exchange agreement with the top-ranked research university the Technical University of Eindhoven in Holland. Through this programme you also have the opportunity of obtaining a double Master’s degree at the Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences in Germany. The NISS-programme , is another opportunity to study abroad at one of our partner universities in the Nordics.

We collaborate with industry, and in the practical part of the programme company equipment is offered at some of our partner companies such as ABB and Ericsson. The programme content is developed together with the companies to guarantee that you will obtain skills requested by the industry. During the course of the programme you will also come into contact with industry through guest lectures, mentorship and placement.

Future and jobs

The market for intelligent embedded systems is enormous and the industry’s need of experts in the area is constantly increasing. On completion of the programme you will be very much in demand in the national and international labour market, both as a well-qualified expert in companies and as a researcher or doctoral student in the higher education. After your studies you can make a career as an engineer, project manager, system architect, programmer or researcher in for example the car industry or in the areas of robotics, telecommunications, process control and home electronics.
