Description of Robotics and Intelligent Systems

Advertisement

Intelligent systems will soon be an integral part of our life and an important competitive

factor in service-oriented organizations and in industrial automation. Örebro University

offers a 120-credit, international Master’s Programme, which gives insight into the cutting

edge research in the field of Robotics and Intelligent Systems. For example, students

learn about the methods used by autonomous 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.

The programme offers two levels of graduation: a 60-credit Master of Science degree in

Computer Science (one year), 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 Master of Science degree in Computer Science (two years), 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.

If you have citizenship in a European Union (EU) or European Economic Area (EEA) country, or Switzerland, you are NOT required to pay application or tuition fees.
