Program description

Master's Program in ICT Innovation (EIT Digital Master School) - Autonomous Systems

The Autonomous Systems (AUS) study program is a combination of computer science and electrical engineering. During the program, students will gain new skills in both areas. In computer science, relevant skills include Internet of Things (IoT), machine learning, artificial intelligence and robot vision. In electrical engineering, relevant skills are automation, robotics, control, embedded systems and communications.

Students learn the latest theoretical knowledge and know how to apply their skills in practical real-life problems. Typical application areas of autonomous systems include autonomous vehicles, intelligent robots, industrial IoT and autonomous software systems.

The program is a double degree program, which means that you will study at two European universities and in two different countries. The program has an integrated technical content (Technical major) and business content (Innovation & Entrepreneurship – I&E minor). The I&E minor is shared between all programs. An integral part of the second year is a Master’s thesis (30 ECTS).

The double-degree program is implemented jointly by leading European universities. The students can select their favorite first (entry) and second (exit) year universities. Each university has a unique specialization area, which allows students to select their own second year area of expertise.

Program content

During the first year, a similar set of courses are offered at the four involved entry points Aalto University, Technical University of Berlin (TUB), Germany, University of Trento, Italy, and Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Sweden. This includes robotics, artificial intelligence (or machine learning), modelling, estimation and control. In addition, some elective courses may be chosen to prepare for a specialization. An important part of the program are also the Innovation and & Entrepreneurship (I&E) courses.

During the second year of studies, the student chooses a specialization option offered in one of the six exit point universities: Aalto University, Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Sweden, Technical University of Berlin (TUB), Germany,University of Trento, Italy, Eurecom, France, or Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE), Hungary. The specialization option offered at Aalto University is Robotics and Artificial Intelligence.

  • The courses of the Robotics and Artificial Intelligence specialization combine both electrical engineering and computer science. Elective courses include autonomous mobile robots, micro- and nano robotics, computer vision, robotic vision, and machine learning. The students will learn how to build autonomous, intelligent robots and robotic systems.

Qualification

Upon completion of the program, students will graduate with a Master of Science (Technology) degree. 

Career opportunities

At the moment, the job market looks very promising. Automotive manufacturing is a major industry in Europe and the university partners are well connected with these companies. In addition, autonomous systems are relevant in service applications and in manufacturing, logistics, shipping, mining, and recycling industries. In addition, autonomous software systems are becoming widespread in application areas, such as media, finance, customer service, and healthcare.

In the Master’s thesis project, the students will work with the industry partners or the active startup community around the Helsinki node of EIT Digital.
