Cognitive Robotics, Perception and Contro

The program profiles itself in the fusion between cognition, control and perception. The first year is dedicated to in-depth courses covering fundamental  topics, such as artificial intelligence, mobile robots, sensing, control and machine learning. The second year focuses on practical work and integration, and culminates with a Master’s thesis.

A Dual Focus on Research and Industry

All teaching in the program is provided by researchers in the Center for Applied Autonomous Sensor Systems (AASS, aass.oru.se). AASS is a renown research center in robotics and intelligent systems with many international connections. Teaching and supervision within the program are intimately connected to research: courses are at a sufficiently advanced level to be driven by current research topics, and project work that is assigned in the second year provides students with the unique opportunity to participate in cutting edge research programs.
Moreover, many of these research projects involve important industrial partners (e.g., ABB, Volvo, Atlas-Copco, Danaher Motion, Stora Enso and Linde). Through these partnerships, the program can offer interested students competitive industry-oriented projects and Msc theses in the second year.

Career

The unique mix of research- and industry-driven focus of the program has resulted in an excellent track record. Our graduates consistently earn prestigious positions both in research and industry.
