    The Master's Program in Robotics and Control at Umeå University is given in English and is fully adapted to the Bologna structure of higher education in Europe. It is interdisciplinary with courses that cover important aspects of modern robotics such as autonomous systems, field robotics, artificial intelligence, computer vision, mobile robots, embedded systems, modeling and control systems. Lectures, lab work, projects, and assignments are closely connected to ongoing research at the University. The programme starts in September (autumn semester).

    The Master's Program in Robotics and Control provides teaching by lectures, group exercises, seminars, laboratory work, assignments, and projects. It consists of courses from the Department of Computing Science and Department of Applied Physics and Electronics. Many courses contain a large portion of laboratory work to provide hands-on experience using the state of the art software and hardware. The study focus may be put on artificial intelligence related robotics or control related robotics, depending on the students interests. It is also possible and encouraged to personalize the program by selecting additional courses according to own interests and including them in the diploma.
    Typically the students study two courses in parallel for a period that is a half of a semester. Each study period ends with an exam period. Every course has three written examination opportunities each year. The program also includes a one-semester project work of 30 ECTS. It is defended orally and documented in the form of a written Master's Thesis.

    Career Opportunities
    With a Master's degree in Robotics and Control you can conduct research and develop new and advanced technologies, for example unmanned vehicles, high level automation of construction machinery, mining equipment, process control in factories, computer vision related products, simulation softwares, advanced sensor systems, and wearable systems.
    There is an increasing need for engineers who can design, build, and maintain complex, automated, and intelligent systems of today and of the future. A Master degree in Robotics and Control also makes you eligible for PhD studies and opens up possibilities for an academic career in robotics and control systems.
