The International Master in Marine and Maritime intelligent Robotics seeks to train a new generation of interdisciplinary professionals who are capable of combining Robotics and Artificial Intelligence in the context of advancing marine and maritime science and their technological applications.
Why choose MIR?
Receive an international double master’s degree from 2 distinguished EU universities
88 Erasmus Mundus Scholarships available, including other industry grants
Internship and thesis opportunities with the MIR global network of 50+ industry and research partners in 21 countries
Excellent blue growth industry career prospects and numerous possibilities to continue on to PhD
Participate in international research events and robotics and AI championships
Learning-by-doing approach with industrial partners involvement and tailored careers advice
Teaching exclusively in English
Students completing the MIR Master’s will be highly competitive experts equipped to follow a promising career in robotics or AI for the offshore oil and gas, renewable, naval and maritime sectors. Additionally, the knowledge acquired in the use and function of intelligent robotics for the underwater will enable them to continue on to a Ph.D. in different fields.
MIR: A Global consortium of 50+ partners
The consortium is formed of 4 main academic partners namely, the Norwegian University of Science and Technology NTNU, the Universitat Jaume I UJI (Spain), the Instituto Superior Técnico IST, University of Lisbon (Portugal), and is coordinated by the University of Toulon UTLN (France).
The MIR MSc relies on an expanding multidisciplinary network of 25 global associate academic institutions in marine/maritime sciences, AI and robotics, and over 26 leading industry partners, in 21 countries.
MIR Study program and mobilities
Students follow the MIR program for over 2 years (4 semesters/120 ECTS).
The first year at UTLN, in France (https://www.univ-tln.fr/) commences by building up a solid background in marine science, robotics, and AI. The year is completed with specialized industry seminars and masterclasses by international distinguished lecturers, including an international symposium and marine robotics and AI championship.
In year 2, students choose to specialize in “Autonomy in subsea operations” at NTNU, in Norway (https://www.ntnu.edu/), “Cooperative marine robotics for scientific and commercial applications” at IST, in Portugal (https://tecnico.ulisboa.pt/pt/) or “Applied robotics for underwater intervention missions” at UJI, in Spain (https://www.uji.es/).
Semester 4 is devoted to a Master’s thesis in the context of a research or industry internship. It is carried out at any of MIR’s main or associate partners, always under the co-supervision of the main partner.
Teaching is done in English. MIR graduate students will obtain 2 master’s degrees from the institutions in which they study during the first and third semesters. The degrees are fully recognized, include a diploma supplement and give access to Ph.D. study programs.
Admissions are closed for the 2021/2022 academic year. Next applications for Erasmus Mundus Scholarships will open around October 2021.
