The programme gives you the prerequisites for a 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, digitization is not limited to machine equipment and production systems, but will 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 technology. High demands on productivity and delivery safety are today a matter of course in modern industry, while business and sustainable development are natural elements in all activities.

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 Intelligent Automation Master's programme focuses on the skills and technologies that tomorrow's engineers will need to meet the challenges of the future. Through the Master's programme, students are expected to gain a basic view of the relationship between production technology, industrial automation and information technology. The Intelligent Automation Master's programme gives you the knowledge to work with machine and production equipment in the smart factory using virtual tools.

The programme contains courses and material that includes regulatory technology, digital twins, product and process data management, as well as the philosophies of industrial systems and systems thinking.

Upon Completion of Your Studies

Continuing research studies

After graduation, you are prepared for research studies in Information Technology at the University of Skövde. The majority of the teachers in the program conduct research in Virtual Engineering at the University of Skövde, and the education thus links to current research in the field.

Post graduate job

The labor market for engineers is big and growing. With new technology, new methods, and new IT support, companies can further streamline their production and make it more reliable, durable and easier to adapt to product and volume changes. However, it is not only in industry but also in other sectors, such as the welfare sector, which will benefit from the new technologies. Probable occupational roles are Automation Engineer, Production Developer or possibly Automation Manager.
