Applied robotics deals with industrial robots and their use in industry. Different kinds of robots are simulated and presented in the course, namely, mobile robots, logistic robots, collaborative robots and additive manufacturing robots.

The course covers the structure and properties of robots, as well as principles for use in industry based on different principles. The course introduces Industry 5.0, which is a human-centered vision of industry that complements the existing Industry 4.0 approach.
Based on the requirements placed on a robot system, these can be configured based on different technical starting points, how they should be used and methods to create efficiency. Commonly occurring equipment is taken up as adaptations to different work processes and applications. This is where grippers and sensors come in, as well as process equipment of various kinds.

The course covers factors for investment, as well as labs on how programming can be handled.

Target group

This course is for professionals who work with production systems, automation and robotization at various levels as responsible for individual production lines, departments, or role as production manager or production development. The course will mainly focus on the manufacturing industry in application examples, but the principles covered will be applicable to a number of industries including consulting companies working towards the manufacturing industry.


The course includes the following:

Structure and characteristics of industrial robots in automation
Guide and factors when investing in robot systems
Labs in programming with industrial robots
Development trends – a global perspective
Practical information

The majority of the parts of the course will take place on Campus (Växjö), and remotely.

During the course, participants will be asked to contribute an automation-based study case from the companies where they are active. Study cases are reported during the course. These, together with performed laboratories, constitute the examination of the course. We will as far as possible be flexible with times for the various course elements.

Teaching language: Swedish. Literature and certain elements may be in English.

The course is free of charge and gives 3 higher education credits, which normally includes approx. 80 hours of work.

Course material will be distributed in connection with the course.

Entry requirements

Basic qualification at advanced level in mechanical engineering or equivalent.

Candidates with relevant work experience are also welcome to apply. Two years of relevant work experience is considered equivalent to one year of university studies at bachelor's level. We can validate your competence if necessary.


Registration can be done continuously until the start of the course.
