The studies in Smart Systems provide advanced training in smart technologies and enable professionals to deal with the challenges and opportunities of modern industry.

A smart system makes use of artificial intelligence algorithms and control technology to integrate sensors and actuators so that devices can operate autonomously and intelligently. It should therefore be able to make reasonable predictions about the expected results of its own actions, adapt to operational changes, and learn from experience.

In order to meet the current demands of modern industry, the Mechanical Engineering - Smart Systems programme from University of Turku gives access to courses in robotics, machine learning, intelligent control, digital factory, systems engineering and modeling, among others. This interdisciplinary approach offers you a wide range of cutting-edge knowledge in smart technologies and helps you step through the doors of the fourth industrial revolution. 

Career options

With the dawn of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, there was a remarkable increase in the demand for highly skilled and innovative professionals. The Smart Systems specialisation track provides the students with the means they need to develop their ability to innovate, design and create smart features in any system or application.
