robotics education

If you are interested in robot programming, control systems and software, then this is the programme for you
The new and unique programme in Robotics join together a range of subjects such as mechanics and production, electronics and it, computer vision, media technology and health science 
technology.

The Bachelor’s programme in Robotics is a new, cross-disciplinary engineering programme based on existing research environments within a number of fields such as 
automation, production, electronics and IT, media technology and health technology. 
As a student, you will have access to state-of-the-art technologies and laboratories, and you will be taught by highly skilled professors from across the university.

 

Academic Content

The Robotics programme consists of three main fields; manipulators, actuators and sensors. 
A manipulator is a mechanical instrument which can affect a robot’s surroundings, for instance a gripper arm. An actuator is a motor that either moves or controls a mechanism or a system. Thus, a robot interacts with its su rroundings via actuators. 
Sensors sense the robot’s surroundings by sending a signal to the robot on which type of physical stimuli it needs to react to. As such, a robot is informed by the sensors whether there is something in its surroundings it needs to react to, the actuators initiate the desired movement, and the manipulator executes the task.

Competencies & Career opportunities

The Robotics programme teaches you about the challenges faced by companies, engineering consultants and service- and research institutes in relation to the utilisation of robots and automation, and you will become the person able to assist them in this matter. You will learn to manage development, analysis and service tasks independently. As a graduate of a cross-disciplinary programme, you will also gain a special competence sought after by many employers – the ability to bridge gaps and co-operate with people from many different academic as well as professional fields.

The bachelor’s programme in Robotics aims to train graduates with a competence profile that enables them to work as development and service engineers, specialists and project managers in both private and public companies where a knowledge of robotics and/or automation is central to the job. In addition, graduates are qualified to pursue further training in a number of master’s programmes.
