Master (Two Years), Systems, Control and Robotics (TSCRM), Study programme for batch Autumn 12
Last edit: 07/05/2013
The theme of the Master of Science programme in Systems, Control and Robotics is analysis, design and control of complex technical systems. Within the program the students will learn the theoretical foundations of modeling, control and optimization of complex systems.
The application areas for systems and control are many, and within the program the student may choose to focus on robotics and autonomous systems, electric power systems or networked control systems. There is also an opportunity for in-depth studies in systems and control theory.
In itsinterdisciplinary spirit the programme brings together courses from both the School of Electrical Engineering (EES) and the School of Computer Science and Communication (CSC). The students of the programme should acquire the knowledge and understanding necessary when working with complex systems in different capacities both in academia and in industry.
Knowledge and understanding
For the master’s degree, the student should:
- have thorough knowledge of current theories and developments in the study area
- have thorough understanding of high competence in Systems and Control
- independently be able to identify and formulate problems related to Systems, Control and Robotics and with adequate methods be able to carry out qualified analysis.
Skills and abilities
Working with complex systems requires skills and abilities in a wide range of topics. For the master’s degree, the student should:
- acquire a broad base of skills in core technical subjects such as signal processing, modeling, control, estimation, and programming, which are key to understanding complex systems
- have the ability understand problems that may not be within their area of specialization
- acquire skills in project management and the theory and methodology of science.
Ability to make judgments and adopt a standpoint
Equipped with the above mentioned skills and abilities, an objective is also to make the students able to: § critically review the work of others and adopt a standpoint in different matters § show the ability to, within the technical area, make judgments with regards to relevant scientific, social, and ethical aspects and show awareness about ethical aspects in research and development work § show insight about technology’s possibilities and limitations, its role in society and humans’ responsibility for how it is used § show the ability to identify his/her need for further knowledge and take responsibility for developing his/her knowledge.
