Automation Engineering, Factory Automation and Robotics, Master of Science (Technology)
Automation is everywhere in our modern society. Without automation, we would not have electricity, water or heating systems in our homes. Automation technology is used to control both individual machines and entire factories. Robots and vehicles are the most visible examples of applications in which automation engineering has a significant role. Automation is an essential technology when productivity, energy and resource efficiency, and the quality of products are improved. Automation engineers have job opportunities in all the branches of industry, as basic knowledge of automation and systems can be widely applied in the fields of engineering and economy.
The Master’s Degree Programme in Factory Automation and Robotics leads to the degree of Master of Science in Technology. The studies in Factory Automation deal with the scientific field of the automation of information (Informatics) in order to build knowledge-based Factory Automation Systems. The studies in Robotics provide you with fundamental knowledge of robotics and related technologies, such as robotics control and sensing/perception systems.
Our graduates are experts in Factory Automation and Robotics. They are prepared to pursue diverse expert, development and management careers.
Studies in the programme involve not only conventional lectures but also more practical ways of learning – different laboratory assignments, hands-on exercises, practical learning and the use of machines and devices in innovative learning environments. The programme gives you an opportunity to gain both theoretical and practical competencies in the fields of factory automation and robotics.
Compulsory basic studies introduce students to automation engineering and prepare them to pursue more advanced studies. The module also provides students with other necessary skills, such as the basics of the Finnish language and guidance for thesis writing.
Studies in the fields of Factory Automation and Industrial Informatics and Robotics provide you with in-depth knowledge of both subjects and open the door to a broad range of career opportunities.
To complete a Master's Degree in Technology, you are required to prepare a master's thesis. The thesis carries 30 credits and may be completed in about six months. The topic of the thesis must be related to Factory Automation and Industrial Informatics, or Robotics. Students prepare their master's thesis individually. Your master's thesis is an extensive treatise, which trains you for independent study and research, mastery of scientific methods, the convention of references, and the scientific mode of presentation in a good literary form. The thesis is conducted and written independently but under the supervision of a professor or a doctoral gradaute in the field of your major subject.
You can freely select elective courses that are counted towards your degree, such as courses in the Finnish language. You do not have to complete elective courses, if the scope of your degree meets the minimum requirement of 120 credits.
