Västerås is located about 100 km west
from Stockholm. The nearest international airport is Arlanda which also is the port to Stockholm. The local airport is
used for domestic traffic, but does also have a connection to Copenhagen.
So the most convenient way to travel would be to take the flight from Copenhagen
to Västerås. Transportation from Arlanda to Västeras takes approx. 1 hour
by bus/taxi. An alternative way of transportation is to take a bus to Stockholm
and then train or bus from Stockholms Central to Västerås.

research Centre (MRTC) was initiated by
a grant from the Swedish KK-foundation
(Stiftelsen för Kunskap och Kompetens-utveckling) to further develop the
real-time research at Mälardalen University (MdH) in close co-operation with
As a result, a group of leading industries has joined the MRTC-effort
by supporting industrial graduate students and participating in research
projects. Strong support from MdH, the Swedish Foundation for Strategic
Research (SSF, via the programme ARTES) and the Swedish
National Board for Industrial and Technical Development (NUTEK) has enabled a fast
build up of a focused research programme with a healthy balance between
applied and fundamental research.
MRTC organises all research and graduate education at the department of
Computer Engineering, at Mälardalen University (MdH) in
Västerås, Sweden. The research covers a wide spectrum - from pure computer
science to applied electronics - but with an emphasis on computer engineering
and dominating focus on real-time systems.
MRTC employs about 40 researchers and graduate students and is organised
in the three laboratories:
- The Computer Science
Laboratory (CSL), which has two
areas of focussed interest: industrial software engineering and programming
- The Real-Time Systems
Design Laboratory (SDL), with a focus
on methods for constructing safety-critical real-time systems,
- The Computer Architecture
Laboratory (CAL), with a focus
on Scaleable Multiprocessor Architecture for Real-time Applications
and methods and tools for hardware design.
