The Advanced Robotics programme delivered atWarsaw University of Technology is an integrated Masters course conducted by: Ecole Centrale de Nantes (France), Warsaw University of Technology (Poland), and the University of Genova (Italy) and Jaume I University of Castello (Spain).

About

The Advanced Robotics programme delivered at Warsaw University of Technology has been designed and accepted in the framework of the European Union ERASMUS-MUNDUS programme. It has 7 associated partners:two Asian Institutions (KEIO University - Japan, SJTU - China) and five industrial partners (IRT Jules Verne - France, Airbus Group Innovations - France, BA Systemes - France, Robotnik - Spain, and SIIT - Italy).

Objectives:

The Masters is designed to promote a high-quality educational offer in the area of advanced and intelligent robotics. After graduation the students will have mastered the different areas of robotics (Mathematical modeling, Control Engineering, Computer Engineering, Mechanical design) in order to be able to deal with Robotics systems as a whole rather than just to concentrate on one particular area. The career prospects for EMARO+ graduates are very good as the proposed courses are relevant to todays high technology society and because the current output of universities is insufficient to meet the demands of industry and research programmes. Students may take the Masters as a professional terminal degree, or join PhD programmes afterwards.

Summary of study programme:

The language of instruction is English, but local language and culture courses of the hosting countries are included in the programme of study.

The aim of the first two semesters is to provide the students with a solid interdisciplinary background across the main areas of robotics (Cognition, Action, Perception).

During the third semester, depending on the host institution, the student will deal with one or more of the following sectors: industrial robot systems, service robots (domestic, health, rehabilitation, leisure), intelligent vehicules and security robots.

The fourth semester is dedicated to the Masters Thesis. The student carries out his/her research work under the joint supervision of two advisors from two different consortium institutions.

Although the EMARO+ programme is applied primarily within the context of robotic systems, the concepts covered can be applied to a much wider range of other engineering and economical systems. The career prospects for EMARO+ graduates are therefore excellent. They can be employed in many industrial and economical companies, as the courses are relevant to todays high technology society.

Accreditation

Students that graduate from the EMARO+ masters course will obtain two masters degrees from the European institutions where they studied. The obtained degrees are officially recognised and give full access to PhD study programmes.

Programme Structure

First year:

The aim of the first year (M1), is to provide the students with a solid interdisciplinary background across the main areas of robotics: Perception (vision, sensors, signal processing), Cognition (computer science, artificial intelligence, and Human Computer Interaction), Action (kinematics, dynamics, automatic control), and Mathematical Foundations (modelling, simulation, and optimisation).

The first year will be opened in the JMD consortium with the same programme at least at two different places (ECN and UNIGE). To exploit the full potential of the complementary areas of the expertise available in the consortium, some modules in each institution are taught by staff from the other institutions of the consortium.

The first year consists of two semesters S1 (from September till the end of January) and S2 (from February till the end of June). The first semester starts with two weeks of intensive local language course.

Audience

The EMARO+ Master course has gained strong support from the industrial and academic worlds, proving the strong relevance of this type of international cooperation in teaching and research at the graduate level. The job placements of EMARO+ students indicate that 42% of them have been accepted in Ph.D positions in Europe and abroad.

Lecturers

The Master EMARO+ relies on academic staff from the consortium institutions and on visiting professors and scholars. The teaching staff are both experienced lecturers as well as excellent researchers.

English Language Requirements

You only need to take one of these language tests:

  • Minimum required score:

    6.5

    The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.

    Take IELTS test
  • Minimum required score:

    550

    The TOEFL – or Test OF English as a Foreign Language – offers a paper-based test (PBT). The final, overall PBT score ranges between 310 and 677, and is based on an average taken from the three test components (listening, structure, and reading). The writing part of this test is scored separately on a scale of 0-6. Read more about TOEFL (PBT).

  • Minimum required score:

    80

    The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).

Academic Requirements

  • Applicants must hold a bachelor degree with 180 ECTS, after at least 3-year studies (at the level of Bachelor of Science) in the field related to robotics such as: Mechatronics, Automatic Control, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, System Engineering, Applied Mathematics and Computer Science.
  • Applicants have to be fluent in spoken and written English. Applicants whose native language is not English are required to pass a recognized international English test such as TOEFL, Cambridge Advanced English Test, IELTS or other equivalent test.
