Today, we are on the cusp of a new automation era: rapid advances in robotics, artificial intelligence, machine learning,

the Internet of Things (IoT), and computing power are enabling machines to match or outperform humans in a range of work activities, including ones requiring cognitive capabilities. Robotics, automation, and Industry 4.0 provide some of the most exciting opportunities to revolutionize how companies manufacture, improve and distribute their products.


The four years program in Automation and Robotics prepares you to play a critical role in the emerging world of industry 4.0. The program is a highly interdisciplinary study combining relevant mechanical, electronics, and software engineering aspects. The curriculum provides a solid fundamental background in the engineering sciences, mathematics, kinematics, mechanisms, electronics circuits, programming languages, microprocessors, controls, embedded systems, and design, modeling, and coding of automation systems. Theoretical learning is integrated with hands-on laboratories and course projects to make the courses highly experiential and contextual.

In the senior years, students can choose specializations within the program in Industrial automation, Robotics or ……. The coursework is complemented with interventions to sharpen or develop soft skills like communication, teamwork, interpersonal skills, and critical thinking, which are essential for a successful career. From the first to the final year, students have opportunities to carry out several projects in which student teams, working with faculty/industry mentors, put their knowledge to work on a real-world issue to find innovative solutions to engineering problems. The program also offers the option of doing an internship with industry or research labs.
