Division of Intelligent Future Technologies


Our undergratuate programs should deliver top engineering education and our students should be attractive and a first choice for companies looking for employees. Our two programs, Högskoleingenjör in Aeronautical engineering and Civilingenjör in Robotics, are designed to give the students a good balance between practical skills and theory in order to create complete engineers.

The research at the department consists of Robotics, Biomedical Engineering, Helath technology, Artificial Intelligence and the new and recently started research within Avionics. Our research is mainly applied and often from a system perspective. We build systems that can be used as proof of principles or as demonstrators to show the practical use of our research results. The research problems are often derived from real problems that exist within the industry or the public sector.
