Intelligent Automation - Master's Programme, 120 ECTS

A Bachelor degree of at least 180 higher education credits (equivalent to 180 ECTS) within the fields of integrated product development or production engineering or automation engineering or mechanical engineering or information technology or similar. A further requirement is proof of skills in English equivalent of studies at upper secondary level in Sweden, known as English course 6 / English course B. This is normally demonstrated by means of an internationally recognized test, e g IELTS, TOEFL or the equivalent.

Master of Science

The program gives you the prerequisites for a leading role in the future smart factory where digitization and virtual tools affect the daily work of both supervisors and operators.

In the future smart factory, digitalization will not be limited to machine equipment and production systems, but also greatly affect the daily work of both management and operators. The machine and production equipment will be designed, constructed, launched and run based on models, simulations and optimizations using artificial intelligence and other advanced computer technologies. High demands on productivity and deliveries are today a matter of course in modern industry, while business and sustainable development are natural elements in all activities.

The Intelligent Automation Master's Program provides you with the tools to develop and validate the future manufacturing system using virtual engineering tools. For many years, the use of computerized engineering tools and virtual technologies has increased. There is nothing to suggest that the trend will slow or reduce. On the contrary the future manufacturing system will be characterized by a higher degree of intelligent technology realized through autonomous, connected and smart components.

The Focus of Your Studies

The Master's Program in Intelligent Automation focuses on providing students with the skills required for tomorrow's engineers, so that they will be able to address challenges and take advantage of new technological solutions. Through their studies on the Master's Program, students are expected to acquire a holistic view of the link between production technology, industrial automation and information technology.

Intelligent Automation is an interdisciplinary field of engineering that focuses how complex engineering problems and systems should be designed and managed from a lifecycle perspective using virtual engineering tools. The Master's Program includes various techniques and tools, such as modelling, simulation, optimization, digital twins, product lifecycle management and also industrial system philosophy, system thinking and sustainability and innovation in order to meet requirements of the future "Smart factory".

Upon Completion of Your Studies

The program prepares you for a career within development of complex machine and production systems and decision support systems either in the consulting industry or at a manufacturing company. Possible career roles are Automation Expert, Systems Engineer or taking responsibility for the technical operation of a production line.

The program also provides a good foundation for further postgraduate studies in the field of Information Technology.
