Automation

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

The academic area of automation encompasses a variety of knowledge and skills involved with the automated control of different machines and systems. University programs usually have a general approach or focus on a particular specialization, such as industry applications or computer technology.

Spain (Spanish: España) is a diverse country sharing the Iberian Peninsula with Portugal at the western end of the Mediterranean Sea. Spain is considered an exotic country in Europe due to its friendly inhabitants and relaxed lifestyle. The normal duration for University courses in Spain is 4 years, except Medicine and the double degrees, which are 6. Madrid and Barcelona are well known cities around world for its cuisine, vibrant nightlife, and world-famous folklore and festivities.

Being the 2nd largest city in Spain, Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia province. It has over 4 million inhabitants. It is a vibrant city that hosts thousands of tourists annually. It is home to university of Barcelona among others.

Masters in Automation in Barcelona in Spain. Master in Intelligent Interactive Systems Future emerging technologies will provide both interactivity and intelligence. The master's programme in Intelligent Interactive Systems (IIS) addresses both trends, focusing on the design, analysis and development of agents and robots able to interact intelligently with humans and other agents, that is, agents that can perceive, plan, act, learn and communicate. The programme's lecturers are world-renowned scientists in the fields of artificial intelligence, robotics, machine learning, natural language interaction and web intelligence. Students will learn about the languages, models and algorithms involved in intelligent interactive systems and will be exposed to top-level research in the field. This is a technical master's programme, and students are expected to be familiar with mathematical language and computer science. Objectives The master's programme aims to provide students with: A solid background in models and algorithms for the analysis, design and development of intelligent interactive systems. An entry point into high-level research in the field in which they make their contributions. Teaching staff The programme's lecturers include the ICREA research professors Hector Geffner, Gabor Lugosi and Leo Wanner; Ricardo Baeza-Yates, director of Yahoo! Labs Europe; and Vladimir Estivill-Castro, of the UPF and Griffith University (Australia). Who is it for? This is a highly technical programme, and students are expected to have prior knowledge of mathematical language and computer science. To apply to the programme, students must hold an undergraduate degree in computer science, mathematics, physics or engineering, or have a similar background. Structure The programme is research-oriented and divided into three terms, over the course of which students must complete 30 credits' worth of compulsory subjects, 10 credits' worth of optional subjects, and a 20-credit research project.
