Work Integrated Learning
is Sweden’s leading university when it comes to work-integrated learning (WIL). The university was tasked with the development of WIL by the Swedish government 15+ years ago and continues to lead the field today.
WIL allows you to put your knowledge and skills into practice within real-world contexts, including carrying out practical tasks, conducting lab work and completing projects most often in close cooperation with industry. The coursework offers a focus on applications for industry and is created through collaboration between industry and researchers. Your studies will have an emphasis on problem-based learning for industry.
Access to Production Technology Centre
As a Robotics and Automation student you will have access to our Production Technology Centre (PTC) during your studies. PTC is one of the largest and newest manufacturing laboratories in Sweden and is home to University West’s research area Production Technology West (PTW).
At PTW we conduct research in flexible industrial automation in conjunction with industry. There are many companies linked to our research environment. As a student, you will have the opportunity not only to be part of cutting-edge research, you will also come into contact with future employers.
Intimate and international
University West offers an intimate environment without the usual barriers between academic staff and students. Here, your professors are easily accessible to answer questions, hold discussions and provide individual feedback. The teacher-to-student ratio is higher than at most other comparable programmes at other universities.
Students from around the globe come together in your programme to create a unique and international environment. The programme also offers opportunities for international exposure in the form of thesis work abroad at one of our partner universities or industries outside of Sweden.
The programme is fully taught in English and you will study with international and Swedish students. This will enhance both your cultural experience and English language proficiency.
A solid job market
Last but not least, the job market for graduates of this programme is extremely good. You benefit both from the quality of your programme here at University West and the fact that Sweden is known as one of the most innovative countries in the world – and is a leader in the field of automation. A Master’s Degree in Robotics and Automation will open doors to further studies and research or a career in industry, both in Sweden and abroad.
