Our 16,000 students read courses and study programmes in Business, Health, Engineering and Education. We conduct research within all areas of education and have internationally outstanding research in future energy and embedded systems. Our close cooperation with the private and public sectors enables us at MDU to help people feel better and the earth to last longer. Mälardalen University is located on both sides of Lake Mälardalen with campuses in Eskilstuna and Västerås.
In this course, you will learn about common air pollutants and how to manage and control air pollution. The course gives you enhanced knowledge about relevant aspects of modern air quality management systems based on regulations and policies related to ambient air quality management in the EU and Sweden.
In contrast to learning how to do manual testing, in this course you will learn how to generate tests automatically in the sense that test creation satisfying a given test goal or given requirement is performed automatically. This course provides an understanding of automating software testing using program analysis with the goal of intelligently and algorithmically creating tests. The course covers search-based test generation, combinatorial and random testing while highlighting the challenges associated with the use of automatic test generation.
The course addresses the concept of circular economy, its use and limitations in the field of environmental engineering, methods for the assessment of resource efficiency, sustainability and environmental impact and practical examples related to waste management.
In this course, you will be made aware of the state-of-the-art in cybersecurity research and state of practice in industry. Cybersecurity vulnerabilities are a threat to progress in the business sector and society. This is an accelerating threat due to the current rapid digitalisation, which in manufacturing is termed Industry 4.0. Companies are aware of this threat and realise the need to invest in countermeasures, but development is hampered by lack of competence.
If you want to learn principles, methods, tools and project strategies for efficient execution of projects in order to gain high quality competence in industrial project management, this course is for you. The course is suitable for you who work in product development, or with improvements in production, or in an administrative project. You will develop knowledge and skills about how to enhance your project management capabilities and deliver predetermined project results. During the course you will work with and relate what you learn to project management in your company. The phases found in projects are covered; establish, execute, hand-over to line organisation and close-out of the project. Organisational aspects of project management are in focus such as leadership, agility, quality management, communication and decision-making.
In this course, you will gain insight in components and technologies included in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Designed specifically for manufacturing sector professionals, the course provides knowledge about the infrastructure, the technologies and requirements needed to generate, transport and manage data in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) system which is one of the main building blocks towards digitalization and smart factories. It includes project work, laboratory exercises and assignments where the student gets knowledge of different applications of IIoT in the manufacturing industry.
The rapid development of digital technologies and advances in communications have led to gigantic amounts of data with complex structures called ‘Big data’ being produced every day at exponential growth. The aim of this course is to give the student insights in fundamental concepts of machine learning with big data as well as recent research trends in the domain. The student will learn about problems and industrial challenges through domain-based case studies. Furthermore, the student will learn to use tools to develop systems using machine-learning algorithms in big data.
The course has the objective to provide proficiency in cybersecurity analysis and design in industrial settings, with a special focus on smart factories and Industry 4.0. To that aim, you will learn about advanced cybersecurity concepts, methodologies and tools. You will also be able to apply your knowledge to case-studies of industrial relevance.
The aim of this course is to provide participants with the principles behind model-driven development of software systems and the application of such a methodology in practice. Modelling is an effective solution to reduce problem complexity and, as a consequence, to enhance time-to-market and properties of the final product.
The course will give insights in fundamental concepts of machine learning and actionable forecasting using predictive analytics. It will cover the key concepts to extract useful information and knowledge from big data sets for analytical modeling
