EducationLINK-SIC has close connections to the engineering education at Linköping University. The researchers in the center belong to the Divisions of Automatic Control and Vehicular Systems, respectively, and both divisions have strong teaching commitments. This gives excellent possibilities for knowledge transfer between the students and teachers at Linköping University and the industry partners in the center. The connections between LINK-SIC and the engineering education have several components, and they will be summarized here. Additional information can be given by the researchers in the center.
Master’s ThesesEach year the companies in LINK-SIC offer interesting and challenging Master’s thesis tasks. Proposals for Master’s theses are normally posted on the websites of the companies. In addition, the researchers in LINK-SIC have very good contacts with companies outside the center. For more information about Master’s theses contact Johan Löfberg (email@example.com), Lars Eriksson (firstname.lastname@example.org), or the other researchers in the center.
Summer Student ProjectsEvery summer since 2018 LINK-SIC has arranged summer projects for students in collaboration with the small and medium size companies in the center, i.e. Senion, Actia Nordic, UMS Skeldar, Newton Nordic, and Alelion. The projects have been documented via posters which have been presented at the annual workshops of LINK-SIC, See e.g. LINK-SIC Workshop 2020. Further information can be given by the Center Director Svante Gunnarsson (email@example.com).
Master’s Level CoursesThe divisions offer several courses with strong relevance for the scope of LINK-SIC, and some examples are:
• Sensor fusion (and more information here)
• Modelling and learning for dynamical systems
• Optimal control
• Vehicle propulsion systems
• Modelling and control of engines and drivelines
Additional information can be given by the Director of Studies Johan Löfberg (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Core Competence Workshops
LINK-SIC arranges workshops with connection to the Core Competences of the center on a regular basis. So far, the following three Core Competence Workshops have been arranged:
• Learning from a control perspective, Oct 2017.
• Theory, applications, and software for optimal control, May 2018.
• Reinforcement learning, March and April 2021.
PhD Level CoursesWithin the framework of the PhD student education, the Divisions of Automatic Control and Vehicular Systems arrange PhD courses with strong connections to the Core Competences of the center. Some examples are:
• System Identification
• Convex Optimization
• Robot Modeling and Control
