The ideal candidate for the programme is an engineer with knowledge of data science and programming, industrial automation and equipped with an analytical mindset.
The degree title is Master of Engineering and the extension of the studies are 60 ECTS. The degree programme is located in Vaasa, Finland.
Novia UAS offers a renewed curriculum from 2024 for the Masterís programme in Intelligent Systems, with a distinct profile in machine learning and artificial intelligence for industrial applications. The curricula include the practical application of machine learning methods for intelligent industrial automation. Both model-based and data-based methods are covered. Specific applications may include automatic quality control, data-driven fault detection, techniques for predictive and forecasting purposes and the study of generative models.
The degree program is linked to the Intelligent Systems Institute at Novia, which focuses on making applied intelligent systems knowledge and recourses readily available for companies. More information about the Intelligent Systems Institute can be found here
on Novia's website.
The Masterís degree programme in Intelligent Systems (60 ECTS) consists of:
- Introduction to intelligent systems, 5 ECTS
- Dynamical systems, 5 ECTS
- Machine learning methods, 5 ECTS
- Development of intelligent automation systems, 5 ECTS
- Industrial artificial intelligence, 5 ECTS
- Machine sensing project, 5 ECTS
- Masterís thesis, 30 ECTS
The studies are primarily designed for students who are working. Tuition in the Masterís degree programme is organized so that studying can be combined with full-time work during a period of two years. During these two years, the studies are scheduled for two days a month from September to June.
The studies consist of virtual parts and intensive course days mainly at Campus Vaasa. The studies of the programme involve not only theoretical lectures but also practical ways of learning, laboratory assignments and hands-on exercises in innovative learning environments.
The learning process is characterized by a strong integration of real working life problems and development projects. The thesis work is realized as a research and development project related to working life.
The Masterís thesis comprises of 30 ECTS. In the Masterís thesis work the student plans and implements a development project in and/or for real working life, typically for his/her employee organization, applying case specific research and/or development approaches. In the Masterís thesis student completes research and contributes to knowledge and understanding in the field of intelligent systems.
Alternatives for the thesis are for example contributing to research work at the university community, development projects for the laboratory research equipment or studies regarding solving intelligent automation tasks with the industry or working life.
