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 Masters 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.
The following is a general overview of the program for robotics and intelligents systems. This program consists of a total of either 60 ECTS credits (graduation after one year), or 120 ECTS credits (graduation after 2 years). All courses are compulsory, and students study 30 ECTS credits each semester.
