Key learning outcomes

You will be familiar with the latest developments in robotics and understand the opportunities and limitations of robotics. You are familiar with the latest technological solutions for physical robots and are able to develop new products, services and new business using robotics in a sustainable manner. You will be able to perform demanding specialist tasks in the field of robotics.

You will have the ability for life-long learning professionally, make decisions and communicate effectively as part of a multinational team. You know how to conduct research ethically.

Concerning sustainably, the aim is to develop and lead sustainable and responsible practices in your work and promote sustainability change in your work community and society. You can apply knowledge of sustainable development and future visions as the basis for comprehensively sustainable solutions. You are also able to analyse and evaluate multidisciplinary complex problems with systemic dependencies and different dimensions of solutions. You can lead your work community in finding and implementing operating models and in consolidating sustainable solutions.

Education content and professional growth and know-how

After completing the studies, you will have gained a general overview and knowledge of different type of physical robots and potential robotics applications. Safety in automation and robotics also has an important role in the studies. You also have basic knowledge of artificial intelligence and cyber security related to robotics.

The studies consist of Jamk's common master’s courses, specialist studies in the degree programme and supplementary studies that support the student's learning and career goals. The main focus of the specialist studies is on the thesis.

Your professional growth is carried out with a tutoring process that gets under way at the beginning of your studies and continues until graduation. In this process, you complete your personal learning plan and discuss your needs for developing your target competences with your career tutor. The 60 ECTS programme is designed as obligatory core studies and optional studies. The discussions with the teacher tutor will lead to selecting appropriate courses in your optional studies. Recognition of prior learning (RPL) will be considered.

Flexible studies

You can choose your alternative or elective studies from EduFutura partner institutions (University of Jyväskylä and Gradia) and international studies from European EUDRES higher education institutions. You can also choose from Finnish and foreign partner universities, such as other universities of applied sciences and universities. You can apply for accreditation of higher education studies that you have completed elsewhere.

Working life oriented learning

The development assignments included in the study modules and courses are integrated with working life. The studies make use of the competencies and expertise of the study group members. Open educational resources are used when appropriate.

The thesis focuses on research and development supporting working life. It also demonstrates your readiness and ability for independent, demanding expert work.

Career opportunities and employment

The degree programme in robotics is aimed especially at engineers in the fields of electrical engineering, automation, electronics and Information Technology, as well as other specialists who have already completed a suitable education. The degree programme is suitable for those at an early stage of their career as well as for experienced and long-serving professionals. Graduates can work in industry, other business or entrepreneurship, for example, in demanding engineering or managerial positions.

Developing as a robotics expert will open up new and challenging work opportunities for you, as well as the possibility of career progression. As a graduate, you can be a driving force in the organisation and an active producer of new knowledge.


There are no specific degree-related or statutory qualification requirements in the field.

Further studies

You may, after graduating, apply for postgraduate studies at universities or studies at the School of Professional Teacher Education. You can also continue your studies by applying for corresponding further education programmes in foreign higher education institutions, such as EUDRES higher education institutions. The university of applied sciences offers opportunities for competence development in various institutes, such as the open university of applied sciences, specialisation training and work-oriented continuing education.

Education planning

The learning outcomes laid down in the curriculum of the degree programme have been derived from the analysis of the operating environment, Jamk's own strategy, and the school's core competence areas. The planning has been carried out in cooperation with students and representatives from regional working life.

The development proposals and course feedback submitted by the students of the degree programme have been considered in the development of the curriculum. International expertise takes place by comparing the contents of the educational offerings of partner universities and with the expertise of the visiting lecturers. Representatives of the degree programme are closely involved in the activities of regional and international industrial networks, thus providing foreknowledge for the needs of the future.
