Systems and Control Engineering, Master
This programme provides a broad knowledge into monitoring and control of all types of technical and industrial systems, based on cybernetic theory and computer-based solutions. Students will learn to connect signals from real systems to computer systems, conduct advanced computations, forward control signals, and report results to administrative computer systems. Modern methods for managing a large amount of data quickly and over large distances allows one to utilize information from the physical system in a different way than by traditional automation methods. The study focuses on new technology, openness, and standardization. Students with different backgrounds will to some degree follow different study courses during the first semester. During the second and third semesters, several elective subjects to choose from are available.
The study programme is taught in English and the students come from several different countries.
Employment opportunities in public and private sectors, process industries, oil exploration, systems development, research, hospital management and educational institutions. A Masters degree in engineering qualifies students to study at the doctoral level at Telemark University College or at other university colleges and universities both in Norway and abroad.
