Description of Systems, Control and Robotics

The purpose of the Master’s programme in Systems, Control and Robotics is to equip students with the skills necessary to analyse, design and control complex technical systems. Such systems are key components in infrastructure and industry, and host a wide array of functions in our daily lives. Therefore, the successful integration of cutting-edge training in engineering with a balanced, holistic systems perspective will remain a crucial area of specialisation for the future.

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.

Course Content

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.

Degree project

The Master's thesis project is typically carried out during the second half of the second year, upon completion of the necessary programme credits. The project may involve work in a relevant industry or in a department at KTH, and may be combined with course work.

For students who wish to pursue a career in research, the thesis project offers an excellent opportunity to develop contacts and the skills necessary to work within a research group; and for those wishing to go into industry, it serves as an important introduction and practical foundation for a career with a prospective employer.

Requirements for Systems, Control and Robotics

A Bachelors degree (or equivalent) of at least 180 ECTS. Specific requirements as specified by each Masters programme.

Work Experience for Systems, Control and Robotics

No work experience is required.
