The purpose of the Master’s programme in Systems, Control and Robotics at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology 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.

About

Systems, Control and Robotics at KTH Royal Institute of Technology

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

A two-year Master’s degree in Systems, Control and Robotics rests on a core set of courses in systems and control and related subjects, and provides the opportunity to utilise a unique cross-section of courses from different disciplines – integrating, for example, Computer Science and Control Theory – to create a comprehensive education. As systems and control engineers require extensive training in the design and analysis of complex technical systems, this Master’s programme provides a strong foundation in both theory and practice. From advancements in health care and the vehicle industry, to providing a variety of important functions in all forms of manufacturing, a large variety of different system examples allow engineering students to combine several educational areas in new, innovative ways.
