With a Master's degree in Control and Automation from Aalborg University, your skills within Electrical Engineering will be focused on system-level design with solid competences in estimation and control. Companies working with complex electronic and electro-mechanical systems will value your skills in handling complex design and development.

The courses taught during the programme will provide you with the tools and knowledge necessary to create autonomous systems which are smart enough to control and regulate themselves.This means that you will learn how a machine can use its sensors to properly sense the environment around it, how to choose and place these sensors for the best results, and how your creation will use this data to do whatever it is supposed to do.

The programme is centered on combining theoretical knowledge gained from courses with practical hands-on experience. Semesters operate under a general theme guiding the approach of courses and the 1-2 weeks mini projects that is part of the teaching model at Aalborg University.

Laboratories are well-equipped with the necessary tools to build your project and staffed with teachers, that will help you with your questions and ideas and guide you through any complex concepts.

Career Opportunities  

Companies working with complex electronic and electromechanical systems will value your skills in handling complex design and development of autonomated systems. Thus, many professional fields are open to you. You may obtain employment in design, development, construction and/or test of control systems and autonomous systems.
