The Intelligent Automation degree offered by the University of Skövde gives you the prerequisites for a leading role in the future smart factory where digitisation and virtual tools affect the daily work of both supervisors and operators.


The Intelligent Automation Master's Programme from University of Skövde provides you with the tools to develop and validate the future manufacturing system using virtual engineering tools. For many years, the use of computerised engineering tools and virtual technologies has increased. There is nothing to suggest that the trend will slow or reduce. On the contrary the future manufacturing system will be characterised by a higher degree of intelligent technology realised through autonomous, connected and smart components.

Upon Completion of Your Studies

The labor market for engineers is big and growing. With new technology, new methods, and new IT support, companies can further streamline their production and make it more reliable, durable and easier to adapt to product and volume changes. However, it is not only in industry but also in other sectors, such as the welfare sector, which will benefit from the new technologies. Probable occupational roles are Automation Engineer, Production Developer or possibly Automation Manager.

After graduation, you are prepared for research studies in Information Technology at the University of Skövde. The majority of the teachers in the programme conduct research in Virtual Engineering at the University of Skövde, and the education thus links to current research in the field.
