Additional information

Robotics is multi-disciplinary and its application domain is vast. Many routes leads to robotics: mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, computer engineering, signal processing, or mathematics. The main objective of this Major is to provide the graduate with a level of knowledge on robotics that she/he can make informed and wise decisions in many possible study or career paths. The student can thus specialize and deepen her/his knowledge in a desired direction by taking from many available optional courses and other minors.
The knowledge and skills gained will make the graduate attractive to many application domains such as mobile machine industry (mining, construction, maintenance, forestry, logistics, marine) and manufacturing. Besides well stablished industry, relevant start-ups are growing and in need. Be part of the future.
