Master's Program in Robotics and Control
The Master's program in Robotics and Control provides a comprehensive foundation for a professional career in the field of robotics. The program is interdisciplinary, covering robotics related to both artificial intelligence and control systems, with contributions mainly from the Departments of Computing Science and Applied Physics and Electronics.
The focus may be put on either artificial intelligence related robotics or control related robotics, depending on the student's interests and qualifications.
A relevant curriculum is guaranteed by lectures and hands-on assignments relating directly to ongoing research projects. Many courses in the program contain a large portion of laboratory work in order to provide experience with relevant software and hardware.
Degree and career
Robotics and control are enabling technologies in most modern technical areas. Robotics has for long been in frequent use in the manufacturing industry and is now being introduced for unmanned vehicles used in transportation and in various hostile environments. One important future area for intelligent robots is believed to be the service sector.
Control theory is the cornerstone in most industrial processes, and also in the construction of vehicles. The control area becomes increasingly important as the complexity and performance of cars, planes and other vehicles increase.
There is a clearly growing need for engineers who can design, build, and maintain these complex automated and intelligent systems of today and of the future.
