This programme is a merger of the following programmes: "Control and Automation" and "Signal Processing and Acoustics".
The new master’s programme in Electronic Systems at Aalborg University is comprised by the overall subjects of signal processing, acoustics, control and automation and communication technologies including radio communication.
You learn about stochastic systems and signals and their mathematical modelling, and how models can be applied in the analysis and design of complex interconnected/distributed systems. In addition, you are taught methods for data acquisition and measurement, including physical sensor construction and applications. You moreover gain knowledge on theories and methods for design and implementation of resource optimal real-time systems on embedded platforms, and you obtain experience in modelling and optimisation of complex systems for example relating to complex control, reliable communication or advanced machine learning/signal processing.
As a specialist in Electronic Systems, you will be able to make a difference in areas such as
- Better antennas for improved communication and physical avoidance of radio signals
- Intelligent electrical systems, ensuring better utilisation of e.g. sustainable energy sources
- Ultra-reliable communication for e.g. police and other authorities
Industry 4.0 and 5G
- Machine intelligence for everyday life efficiency such as commute estimation, fraud prevention in home banking, e-mail spam filters and medical diagnosis and healthcare to name a few
You have access to high-standard facilities, such as anechoic chambers, 5G Smart Production Lab, Radio Connectivity Lab and RF Integrated systems and Circuits Lab.
Application deadline is 1st March.
The master’s programme in Electronic Systems at Aalborg University is comprised by four semesters where you work with gradually more complex subjects.
See the curriculum for the master’s programme in Electronic Systems. Here, you may find details on courses and projects as well as information on the programme’s legal basis, etc.
Compulsory for all non-AAU bachelors
All bachelors enrolled in the programme who have not obtained their bachelor's degree from Aalborg University must take part in a course on problem based learning (PBL) as part of the 1st semester project. In case non-AAU bachelors get credit transfer for the 1st semester, they will be asked to take part in a course ensuring that they are trained in working according to the PBL-model. Read more about PBL here.
In the 3rd semester of the master’s programme in Electronic Systems, you have the opportunity to go abroad or spend your semester in a company.
Aalborg University cooperates with a range of universities across the world and has well-established contacts in industry both in regards to student projects and company internships. The International Office at Aalborg University may assist you with guidance, but you must make your own preparations, incl. checking whether you need advanced credit transfer, looking for accommodation, checking up on insurance, visa and possible needed vaccinations, and, if relevant, how to avoid a lapse of your Danish residence permit.
