Within the programme, students learn (among other things) about the methods used by autonomous vehicles to know where they are, how the navigation software in your phone finds the best route, and the sensors that robots and intelligent systems use to perceive the world, as well as machine learning methods that can make computers make difficult choices or learn to recognise the patterns around them. The programme offers two levels of graduation: a 60-credit Master of Science degree in Computer Science (one year), providing in-depth knowledge of advanced research topics and software engineering competences which can be readily applied to the job market; or a 120-credit Master of Science degree (two years), for those who wish to gain a higher degree of autonomy in problem solving and innovative thinking, possibly pursuing a career in research and development or academia.

The first year of the programme consists of courses providing research methodologies for intelligent system design, as well as a selection of advanced techniques for intelligent systems. Course contents include advanced artificial intelligence, robot control, multi-agent systems, methods for mapping and localisation, and more.

The optional second year is to a large degree focused on project work, deepening understanding of the theoretical methods and developing team and project skills.
