Master in Electronic Systems and Instrumentation, 120 credits

Save favourite

This programme focuses on embedded electronic systems with sensors. Electronics systems are increasingly common and can be found in a wide range of products on the market, among other things in cars, refrigerators, keys and packaging. During the programme you will broaden your knowledge of different design technologies used to create embedded sensor systems. The programme is continuously updated with the latest development in the field, in collaboration with researchers and industrial partners.

Most products today have embedded electronics, regardless of whether or not they have previously been associated with electronics. For example, you will be able to find electronics in cars, refrigerators, keys and packaging. In many instances these embedded systems also have sensory functions which range from simple temperature sensors to complicated sensors based on video technology.

The programme, which is given in co-operation between Mid Sweden University and Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), will give you a wide range of knowledge of different technologies which serve as the basis in designing embedded sensor systems. During the second year you will specialise and acquire a deepened knowledge in a specific area through individual projects.

The programme is entirely in English and will give you increased skills in communicating in international projects.

Semester 1 includes a one-week kick-off at Mid Sweden University, Campus Sundsvall. You will stay at Campus Sundsvall for the whole semester 2. There are also possibilities to study at a partner university in Europe.

Contact person at NTNU is Dag Roar Hjelme (
