There are very few industries that do not rely on machines and improvements in technology to help them deliver their goals. The successful integration of cutting-edge engineering and a holistic, human approach to systems operations is a crucial area that will become increasingly important in the future.

Description

The Master’s programme is taught in English and involves team collaborations and projects emphasising the academic and cultural diversity of the field. The coursework is based around four areas of focus: Robotics and Autonomous Systems (AS), Networked Control Systems (NC), Systems and Control Theory (SC) and Electric Energy Systems (ES). Students will be able to incorporate and use KTH’s strong ties with research and industry leaders for their thesis project in the second year, providing them with excellent career opportunities.

Career prospects

A two-year Masters degree in Systems, Control and Robotics gives students the opportunity to utilize a unique cross-section of courses from different disciplines integrating Computer Science, Electrical Engineering and Communication to create a comprehensive education. As engineers require extensive training in the design and analysis of complex technical systems, this Masters programme provides a strong foundation in both theoretical and practical systems operations. It also allows students to explore the boundary-pushing world of robotics.

This is an exciting, essential field one that is rapidly becoming more sophisticated and pivotal in our societies. From advancements in health care and the vehicle industry, to providing a variety of important functions in all forms of manufacturing, robotics and their systems allow engineering students to combine several educational areas in new, innovative ways.
