Learning outcomes

The overall aim of this course is to offer an opportunity to deepen the knowledge in embedded systems, in an area not covered by ordinary courses. It can be done through studies of research papers, text books or projects. Alternatively it can be done by participating in a PhD-level course.

To pass, the student should be able to

  • assimilate new content on advanced level through a substantial proportion of self-studies;
  • summarise and assess the content of the chosen area in embedded systems;
  • identify, obtain and use core knowledge related to the task;
  • integrate, generalise and combine prior knowledge in embedded systems


The exact content is decided upon each individual course instance. The content must be on advanced level in embedded systems. Both theory and applications are well suited under the condition that they have a focus on one of the areas mentioned above.


Decided upon on each course instance.


Written and oral presentation of the project, and, if applicable, demonstration of the project.

Other directives

The project title of the course and its advisor is registered in UPPDOK. This course differs from 1DT101 Advanced Course on Topics in Embedded Systems, 10 credits only in extent and not in level or depth. Both courses can be included in a degree provided that the content is not overlapping.
