The Embedded Systems program at Uppsala University focuses on formulation of design requirements and formal analysis of solutions. You will also be able to summarise existing knowledge and recent research results in the area.
Many devices applied routinely in our daily lives, like cell phones, washing machines, cars, or even airplanes are controlled by embedded computers. Devices may contain hundreds of microprocessors and millions of lines of program code, all of which are essential for correct functioning of a system.
Embedded computer systems are a decisive factor for industries and societies. The development of embedded systems requires sophisticated technical skills within disciplines such as computer science, electronics, and mathematics.
Embedded systems are a major global market, controlling a broad range of everyday and specialised devices. They are vital elements of, e.g., modern motor vehicles. Skills in embedded systems development are in demand with employers such as General Motors, Volvo, BMW, Mercedes, Toyota, Mazda, Scania and many others.There are also applications in aeronautics and robotics, with employers such as ABB, or in communications, with companies including Ericsson or Huawei, just to name a few major areas.
