Graduate School

The WASP Graduate School is dedicated to provide the skills needed to analyze, develop, and contribute to the interdisciplinary area of artificial intelligence, autonomous systems and software.

The curriculum provides the foundations, perspectives, and state-of-the-art knowledge in the different disciplines taught by leading researchers in the field. The graduate school is organized as one common school divided into two tracks – one that focuses on AI and one that focuses on autonomous systems and software.

Forming a Strong Professional Network

The WASP graduate school actively supports forming a strong multi-disciplinary and international professional network between PhD students, researchers and industry.

This is done through an ambitious program with specifically designed courses, international research visits, study visits at Swedish industry partners, cooperation with several partner universities in and outside Sweden, and visiting lecturers. There are also recurrent chances for our PhD students to network with industrial and academic representatives in the many events arranged by WASP.

The graduate school provides added value on top of the existing PhD programs at the partner universities, providing unique opportunities for students who are dedicated to achieve international research excellence with industrial relevance.
