About the subfield

The subfield has specialisations in cybernetics / signal processing; computer science; physics and mathematics. The doctoral programme is linked to the research within each of these specialisations.


Computer Science and Electrical Engineering and Mathematics and Physics.

Target Audience

Students with master’s degree in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mathematics or Physics.

Study Courses

One of the following is to be chosen:

  • DAT912 Formal Methods for Specifying Systems (10 credits)
  • DAT940 Study Courses in Computer Technology (10 credits)
  • ELE922 Biomedical data analysis (10 credits)
  • ELE923 Study Courses in Electrical Technology (10 credits)
