# 2018/2019

## Prerequisite/Recommended prerequisite for participation in the module

The module builds on knowledge obtained through the Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Engineering (Electronic Engineering and IT education and the 1st semester of the Master’s Programme in Control and Automation (CA) at Aalborg University. In particular, qualifications equivalent to those obtained through the Bachelor of Engineering in Electronics is recommended.
