An important goal of the programme is the ability to write embedded software in a range of development environments and programming paradigms. You will be able to quickly utilise new languages and programming environments. The degree also focuses on problem analysis, formulation of design requirements and implementation of systems using the latest technology. You will also be able to summarise existing knowledge and recent research results in the area.
A Master degree in Embedded Systems at Uppsala University provides candidates with a world class education in computer science and systems engineering, with a focus on the design, implementation, and analysis of embedded systems. The Master programme covers both theoretical and practical aspects of embedded systems, and conveys skills and knowledge that are highly relevant to the national and international labour market. Courses offered include both traditional and project-oriented training, covering a wide range of topics relevant for embedded systems as well as industry and workplace-related skills. The programme also provides considerable flexibility and opportunity to create a personal profile through choice of elective subjects from other areas of the university.
Uppsala University is a leading research institute in embedded systems. The programme is developed and conducted as a close collaboration between two major research centres of excellence at the university. The UPMARC centre studies multi-core computers and parallel systems, while WISENET conducts research in wireless sensor networks. Education is well-integrated with research at both centres, with many courses being taught by staff with well-established international reputation.
Embedded systems are a major global market, controlling a broad range of everyday and specialised devices. The programme is central to todays and tomorrows labour market, both in Sweden and internationally. With a Master in Embedded systems from Uppsala University you are well prepared for a career in industry or research. People with a strong computer science education, combined with knowledge of, and skills in, design and development of embedded systems are in great demand on the labour market.
Embedded systems are a vital element of modern motor vehicles. Skills in embedded systems development are in demand with employers such as General Motors, Volvo, BMW, Mercedes, Toyota, Mazda, Scania and others.
There are also applications in aeronautics and robotics, with employers such as ABB, or in communications, with companies including Ericsson or Huawei, just to name a few major areas.
The programme leads to a Master of Science (120 credits) with Embedded Systems as the main field of study.
The programme includes a wide range of courses which can be selected based on personal interest or prior studies. Elective subjects can be chosen from all areas of the University as part of an individual profile.
Examples of courses include: Construction and Programming of Embedded Systems, Automated Control, Networking, Distributed Systems, Applied Mathematics, Modelling and Verification of Computer Systems and Software, Real-time Systems and Signal Processing, and Digital Electronics Design. There are also many opportunities to participate in research projects conducted at Uppsala University. Many of the courses are taught by respected international researchers.
