Autonomous systems have essential applications, e.g., in energy production and recovery as well as in circular economy. Students who graduate from the program will build robotized solutions, e.g., for production, energy field, transportation, and logistics. The program combines computer science, real-time embedded systems, wireless communication, computer vision and other sensing of the environment, and locational awareness. Moreover, aspects of sustainable development related to autonomous systems, in particular, energy harvesting, smart cities and communities, concepts of AI and machine learning, as well as cyber security of systems are an integral part of the master’s program.

With our studies in Sustainable and Autonomous Systems, you will become an expert who can consider the needs and opportunities of sustainable development in autonomous systems.

After completing the degree, you will know how to:

  • Apply the advanced knowledge and related technologies of sustainable autonomous systems to conduct research and product development
  • Develop solutions and new knowledge to benefit society and industry while considering sustainable development and engineering ethics
  • Acquire the latest knowledge in one’s own and new fields and use it for product development, research, and specialist tasks

In addition, the program provides eligibility for doctoral studies in the fields of communications engineering, electrical and computing engineering, automation engineering, or related technical fields.

The education is a joint effort of the University of Vaasa and the University of Oulu, and it will be offered by both universities through various teaching methods. You can build a unique study path combining courses from these two Finnish universities strong in the field of engineering at the same time. Regardless of the city you choose, you will get the full on-campus experience.
