Robotics, M.Sc.

  • Application Deadline
  • 24 months
University rank #324 (QS) ,
Aalborg University’s new M.Sc. programme in Robotics is an engineering programme targeted at B.Sc. graduates interested in robot programming, control systems and software.


Robotics is a cross-curricular master's programme which draws on a number of research environments gathered in the robot research programme, Students have access to advanced technologies and well-equipped laboratories, and they are taught by highly qualified and committed professors from across the university.

The Robotics educational programme at Aalborg University equips you with the skills to tackle challenges in the utilisation of robots and automation, which companies, engineering consultants and service- and research institutes are facing.

You will learn about for example,
  • mobile robots and collaborative robots
  • the interaction between the various components of a robotic system
  • developing and testing robotics hardware and software and integrating them into a broader systems-oriented context

Half of your time is spent on project work in groups according to the AAU Problem Based Learning-model. Apart from good cooperation skills, this will give you the ability to handle technical problem solving at a high level as well as the capacity to work with and manage all phases of a project. However, you are also trained to master development-, analysis- and service tasks on an independent level.


Your Robotics profile qualifies you for jobs such as development- and service engineering, specialist and project manager in private companies and public organisations where knowledge of robots and/or automation is a central part of the job.
