Entry requirements

Bachelor's degree, and in addition at least 30 credits of embedded systems courses at the advanced level. A by the department approved project plan is necessary. Proficiency in English equivalent to the Swedish upper secondary course English 6.

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. In the former case, the learning outcomes are:

On completion of the course, 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.

If there are special reasons for doing so, an examiner may make an exception from the method of assessment indicated and allow a student to be assessed by another method. An example of special reasons might be a certificate regarding special pedagogical support from the disability coordinator of the university.

Other directives

The project title of the course and the examiner is registered in UPPDOK. This course differs from 1DT100 Advanced Course on Topics in Embedded Systems, 5 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.
