You will acquire competencies within system identification and identification and its application in engineering systems including comprehension of probability, statistic and stochastic processes. You will also work with fault diagnosis and reliability analysis.
Upon graduation, you have attained a variety of skills and competences highly applicable in R&D departments in both small and large companies all over the world. As an employee, you will participate in developing several of the products you know from your daily life. Also open to you are sales departments, manufacturing companies, consulting engineering companies and the public sector. You may also pursue a career as a PhD student.
Below, you may see a short list of the programme's content.
On the 1st semester, the project is focused on identification and/or estimation of systems for control of design. It can be systems from the chemical industry, offshore oil- and gas industry, mechanical systems, robots or other systems with identification or estimation requirements.1ST SEMESTER PROJECT EXAMPLES
In the courses, you will learn about the theoretical framework which defines stochastic processes. You will gain knowledge of the basic principles for system design, and you will become familiar with systematic methods for modelling of complex and flexible mechanical structures. There are two mandatory courses and one elective (three to choose from).
Your 2nd semester project will concern challenges regarding surveillance of processing systems. This can be a chemical process, a mechanical system or any safety-critical system. You and your project group choose the system you would like to work with. In the project, you must consider the reliability of the chosen system, determine its Fault Detection and Diagnosis (FDD) and based on this choose an FDD solution which is to be implemented on a real-time platform and tested, either via computer simulation or hardware.2ND SEMESTER PROJECT EXAMPLES
On the 2nd semester, all courses are mandatory, and you will learn about industrial automation processes, non-linear control theory, fault modelling and –detectability as well as the basic principles for reliability modelling and –analysis.
The 3rd semester is all about choices – it has two project themes and three elective courses. You must choose one of the project themes and two of the courses.PROJECT THEME 1: DESIGN OF INTELLIGENT RELIABLE SYSTEMS
Under this theme, you will be working with design challenges within reliability control of a system of your own choosing. As usual, it can be a chemical process, a mechanical system or any safety-critical system. You and your group must consider fault-tolerant control, and you must decide on strategies and methods for fault-tolerant design. Your solution must be implemented on a real-time platform and tested, either via computer simulation or hardware.
If you choose the second project theme, you will work on a design challenge within advanced control and/or estimation. It can be a chemical process, a mechanical system or any safety-critical system. You and your group must consider advanced technology instead of basic control and estimation. Your solution must be implemented on a real-time platform and tested, either via computer simulation or hardware.
In the courses, you can choose to work with basic subjects within advanced control with self-adjusting mechanical and optimal control technique, intelligent control methods and reliability-oriented design, or methods, tools and applications within machine learning.
There are no courses on the 4th semester, as it is reserved entirely for working on your master’s thesis.MASTER’S THESIS EXAMPLES
When you have finished the 4th semester, you are Master of Science in engineering in Intelligent Reliable Systems.

You only need to take one of these language tests:
The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.Take IELTS test
The CAE test – or the Cambridge Advanced English – is an exam for applicants who wish to get a Certificate in Advanced English. To receive the Advanced certificate, test-takers must score between 142 and 210 on the Cambridge English: Advanced test. Read more about CAE.
Note: degree programmes and applications may require a more specific minimum score for admission.
The TOEFL – or Test OF English as a Foreign Language – offers a paper-based test (PBT). The final, overall PBT score ranges between 310 and 677, and is based on an average taken from the three test components (listening, structure, and reading). The writing part of this test is scored separately on a scale of 0-6. Read more about TOEFL (PBT).
The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).
