How to apply?

Automation is the science and technology of designing systems where mechanisms and processes are controlled by computer-based algorithms or models. Automation can be applied at low-level via signal processing, at intermediate-level via control system modelling, and at high-level via decision-making. Automation includes a wide range of software and hardware technologies such as smart sensors, sensor fusion, control theory, remote sensing, simulation of physical systems, and machine learning. As student at the Automation specialization, you can choose among several courses and tailor your own Master’s Degree within the automation domain.
