Within the programme, students learn (among other things) 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, as well as machine learning methods that can make computers make difficult choices or learn to recognise the patterns around them.
The programme from Örebro University.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 (two years), for those who wish to gain a higher degree of autonomy in problem solving and innovative thinking, possibly pursuing a career in research and development or academia.
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. Course contents include advanced artificial intelligence, robot control, multi-agent systems, methods for mapping and localisation, and more.
The optional second year is to a large degree focused on project work, deepening understanding of the theoretical methods and developing team and project skills.
Specialists capable of developing and servicing complex intelligent systems are already much sought after and will become paramount in the future. This degree provides the possibility to pursue an exciting career in industry as well as academia. With special focus on Robotics and Intelligent Systems, you can work in a career in advanced technologies, such as unmanned vehicles, automation industry, advanced computer software that includes computer vision and advanced artificial intelligence software development.
The Master's degree makes you eligible for PhD studies and gives you the possibility to do an academic career. 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 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.
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 master's programmes will be published on Örebro University's website.
StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
