COURSES

Major in Factory Automation and Robotics

The extent of the degree programme is 120 cr. It consists of 90 cr of courses and Master Thesis of 30 cr. As a student of Factory Automation and Robotics, you will gain deep knowledge in both focus areas. You are also required to complete a course in the Finnish language during your studies.

Major in Robotics and Artificial Intelligence

The robotics and AI programme combines modern machine learning techniques with modern robotics. The programme is implemented jointly by laboratories of Mechanical Engineering and Signal Processing, and includes courses from both domains.

Mechatronics and Robot Programming (IHA-4206)

This is a hands-on course where the students learn about how to setup a mechatronic system, specially a robot with sensors, actuators and processing units. They learn how to use ROS and Matlab, connect sensors and actuators (drivers) to a control PC and collect data and visualize.

Course is composed of over 10 different cases (small projects). Students can choose the time that suits them to exercise the cases. Learning events will serve two purposes: 1) Project demos; 2) Several short lectures

Advanced Robotics (IHA-4506)

Learning outcomes of the course: Students will learn about wheeled robot:

  • Steering systems, maneuverability, Kinematic modeling (differential drive and articulated frame steering)
  • Kinematic based motion control: path following, pure pursuit, pose control, line following
  • Path smoothing and planning,
  • Obstacle avodance: potential field, velocity obstacles
  • Potential field for non-euclidean and rigib body robots
  • Machine learning and robot motion control
  • etc...
  • Robotics Project Work (MEI-56306)

    Learning outcomes of the course: The course includes lectures, seminars and project works in groups. Lectures are provided by the professors, invited speakers both from industry and academia. Objectives of the course are :

  • To provide view on robotics general in society.
  • To familiarize the students with specturm of robotics applications, trends, and disruption.
  • To familiarize the students with application domains and needs.
  • To work in a team of 2-3 towards a project work that possibly crosses boundries of serveral courses.
  • To challenge their skills and knowledge gained in the other courses in a larger context.
  • Collaborative Robotics (MEI-56406)

    After completing the course the participants know the principles of new human-robot collaboration (HRC) solutions in different areas of industrial and services, and their technology maturity levels. Legistlation and relevant standard defining the basis for HRC will be introduced. Understanding will be deepened in personal study where standards will be applied. Participants will have ability to conceptualise collaborative robotics enabled by modern technologies, including their business aspects.
