The international Masters programme in robotics and intelligent systems is an exciting two-year programme for students with a Bachelors degree in engineering. The programme is offered by the nationally and internationally renowned Centre for Applied Autonomous Sensor Systems (AASS) at Örebro University.
The International Master's in Robotics and Intelligent Systems is an exciting 2 year program for students seeking to gain high-profile competence relevant for both research and industrial careers.
The International Master's in Robotics and Intelligent Systems aims to give students a solid practical and theoretical knowledge in intelligent systems with a particular emphasis on robotic systems, and to prepare them for a career in modernized industry, service organizations or academia.
The program profiles itself in the fusion between cognition, control and perception. The first year is dedicated to in-depth courses covering the fundamental topics related to robotics and intelligent systems (among which artificial intelligence, mobile robots, sensing, and control), followed by a second year dedicated to practical work. The second year's entire curriculum is dedicated to project work, and culminates in a Master's thesis. All teaching in the program is provided by researchers in the Center for Applied Autonomous Sensor Systems (AASS).
Teaching and supervision within the program are intimately connected to research performed at AASS: courses are at a sufficiently advanced level to be driven by current research topics, and project work that is assigned in the second year provides students with the unique opportunity to participate in cutting edge research programs. Moreover, many of these research projects involve important industrial partners (e.g., ABB, Volvo, Atlas Copco, Danaher Motion, Stora Enso and Linde).
Through these partnerships, the program can offer interested students competitive industry-oriented projects in the second year. Students interested in applying should have strong programming skills (e.g., C/C++, Java and/or other object oriented languages), as well as a solid background in mathematics (see formal requirements for further details).
Qualifications (degree awarded)
* Degree of Master of Arts/Science [60 credits]
* Degree of Master of Arts/Science [120 credits]
The unique mix of research- and industry-driven focus of the International Master's in Robotics and Intelligent Systems has resulted in an excellent track record. Our graduates consistently earn prestigious positions both in research and industry.
The International Master's in Robotics and Intelligent Systems proposes an attractive curriculum which alternates both theory and practice in fields related to robotics and artificial intelligence.
Of the program's ten courses, four are lab-intensive and five are are dedicated to introducing students to research topics within the area.
The second-last semester of the program focuses heavily on project work with a course dedicated to integration and development of robotic platforms, sensors and algorithms. An overview of this course is given in the following video.
The International Master's in Robotics and Intelligent Systems is an all-round program whose vision is to create a new generation of highly competitive research leaders, ready to engage in successful careers in modernized industry, service organizations or academia.

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 2013. 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.
