For example, you will learn about the methods used by self-driving vehicles to know where they are, how the navigation software in your phone finds the best route, and the sensors that robots and intelligent systems use to perceive the world, as well as machine learning methods that can make computers make difficult choices or learn to recognise the patterns around them.
Örebro University's Centre for Applied Autonomous Sensor Systems (AASS) is one of Sweden's largest academic research centres in robotics and intelligent systems. We are internationally known for our cutting-edge research in autonomous vehicles, service robots, and cognitive perception systems.
Upon graduation, you will be able to work with advanced technologies for intelligent systems, such as decision support systems for industrial processes, autonomous vehicles, sensor systems, and domestic service robotics. This degree provides the possibility to pursue an exciting career in industry as well as academia. Intelligent systems will soon be an integral part of our life, and specialists capable of developing and servicing complex intelligent systems are already much sought after and will become paramount in the future
Excellent Track Record
This programme is unique in that it is strongly coupled to AASS, one of Sweden's strongest research environments in Robotics. We offer you an opportunity to pursue project work in cutting-edge research projects, often with high industrial relevance. Consequently, the demands on the student are high, and many of our graduates have gone on to further positions within academia and within leading companies in the field (ABB, Mathworks, Atlas Copco, etc.)
The programme offers two levels of graduation: either a 60-credit (one year) Master of Science degree in Computer Science, providing in-depth knowledge of advanced research topics and software engineering competences which can be readily applied to the job market; or a 120-credit (two years) Master of Science degree in Computer Science, for those who wish to gain a higher degree of autonomy in problem solving and innovative thinking, possibly pursuing a career in R&D or academia.
This programme caters to applicants with a Bachelor's degree or equivalent in computer science, informatics, engineering and other science-related subjects.
The first year of the programme consists of courses providing research methodologies for intelligent system design, as well as a selection of advanced techniques for intelligent systems. The optional second year focuses on project work and a Master's Thesis.
Completion of the one-year Master's degree (magister, 60 credits) guarantees that graduates have acquired in-depth knowledge of advanced research topics, as well as advanced software engineering competences, which can be readily applied to the job market. Graduates of the two-year Master's degree (master, 120 credits) will be highly skilled computer scientists who are ready to engage in work which requires a higher degree of autonomy in problem solving and innovative thinking. These graduates will be fully capable of applying for jobs in industry R&D as well as for further PhD-level education.

Örebro University Scholarship
The Örebro University Scholarship programme is aimed at top academic students from countries outside the European Union, European Economic Area and Switzerland, who are required to pay tuition fees for studies starting after June 2011. The scholarship covers full or partial tuition fees but does not cover living expenses.
The application deadline is 31 January. Decisions to award the scholarship will be made at the latest in the first week of April. Students who are awarded a scholarship will be notified by e-mail and their names and application numbers will be published on Örebro Universitys website.
The scholarship is awarded based on the applicants suitability for and commitments to the chosen study programme, academic qualifications, and desire to study at Örebro University.
Örebro University Scholarship
This Örebro University Scholarship programme is not open for students from the twelve countries with which Sweden has long-term development cooperation's (Bangladesh, Bolivia, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mali, Mozambique, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia).Students from these countries should instead apply for the Swedish Institute Study Scholarship. Students from these countries should instead apply for the Swedish Institute Study Scholarship.
Swedish Institute Scholarship
The Swedish Institute
Note that the Swedish Institute also offer scholarships for students from many other countries as well. The Swedish Institute awards about 500 scholarships per year to students and researchers who want to come to Sweden.
Fortunately enough I was able to find StudyPortals. Right from the start of the application to getting the confirmation of admission I was using StudyPortals.
