The Master’s Programme in Embedded Systems aims to provide you with a thorough understanding of computer and systems engineering with a focus on design, implementation, and analysis of embedded systems software. You will be close to cutting-edge research and gain skills and knowledge that are highly relevant on the national and international labour market, both in industry and academia.
WHY THIS PROGRAMME?
Many devices applied routinely in our daily lives, like cell phones, washing machines, cars, or even airplanes are controlled by embedded computers. Devices may contain hundreds of microprocessors and millions of lines of program code, all of which are essential for correct functioning of a system. Embedded computer systems are a decisive factor for industries and societies. The development of embedded systems requires sophisticated technical skills within disciplines such as computer science, electronics, and mathematics.
An important goal of the programme is the ability to write embedded software in a range of development environments and programming paradigms. The degree also focuses on formulation of design requirements and formal analysis of solutions. You will also be able to summarise existing knowledge and recent research results in the area.
During the programme you can expect to:
- learn to write embedded software in a range of development environments and programming paradigms
- learn to analyse relevant problems and solutions with mathematical rigour
- study at a leading research institute in embedded systems
Uppsala University is a leading research institute in embedded systems. The programme is developed and conducted as a collaboration between major research centres, which among others study multi-core computers and parallel systems, wireless sensor networks, and the Internet of Things.
You have a strong foundation in Computer Science or Engineering and have studied at least a semester of mathematics and another semester of computer science, including computer architecture, operating systems and programming.
You are independent, self-going and extremely motivated and willing to take a lot of responsibility yourself to form your own educational experience from the wide range of courses available. You would appreciate an opportunity to form your own programme profile. You can critically analyse and reflect on problems and are creative and innovative enough to come up with your own ideas. You enjoy problem solving and teamwork!
A future PhD education is a possibility you might have thought about but you also know that experts in Embedded Systems are in high demand in many industries, so starting to work right after graduation is also something you are considering.
A Bachelor’s degree, equivalent to a Swedish Kandidatexamen, from an internationally recognised university. The main field of study must be engineering, mathematics or computer science.
Also required is:
- 30 credits in mathematics; and
- 30 credits in computer science, including courses in programming, computer architecture and operating systems.
All applicants need to verify English language proficiency that corresponds to English studies at upper secondary (high school) level in Sweden (“English 6”). This can be done in a number of ways, including through an internationally recognised test such as TOEFL or IELTS, or through previous upper secondary (high school) or university studies.
The minimum test scores are:
- IELTS: an overall mark of 6.5 and no section below 5.5
- TOEFL: Paper-based: Score of 4.5 (scale 1–6) in written test and a total score of 575. Internet-based: Score of 20 (scale 0–30) in written test and a total score of 90
- Cambridge: CAE, CPE
Selection: Students are selected based on:
- a total appraisal of quantity and quality of previous university studies; and
- a statement of purpose (1 page).
Tuition fee-paying students and non-paying students are admitted on the same grounds but in different selection groups.
If you are not a citizen of a European Union (EU) or European Economic Area (EEA) country, or Switzerland, you are required to pay application and tuition fees. Fees cover application and tuition only and do not cover accommodation, academic literature or the general cost of living. Read more about fees.
Application Fee: SEK 900
Tuition fee, first semester: SEK 72500
Tuition fee, total: SEK 290000
