The Master’s programme in Autonomous Systems is based on the premise that fields such as planning of work processes, customer focus, quality assurance, production management and utilisation of resources all can be addressed from a modern production approach regardless of sectors; the approach is applicable to work within a wide range of fields e.g. production, transportation and service - on both a national and an international level.

The programme is characterised by a combination of engineering and business approaches; you will be working with application of innovative information technology for modelling, simulation and cost-benefit studies of manufacturing systems, business processes and related product and services. Such modern tools play an important role in business improvement and enhanced resource utilisation in today’s competitive environment. 
The programme challenges the sector-specific knowledge you have gained during your Bachelor education.

During the Master’s programme in Autonomous Systems you will develop and expand your knowledge within product design, efficiency improvement, and innovation of work processes and -systems.
