A course of very recent institution, delivered entirely in English with the aim of training high level professionals in the field of automatic control and robotics. To characterise this offer, which is aimed at both industrial and information engineering, is its distinctly scientific character, with a solid knowledge base borrowed from physics and mathematics. You will be able to direct your interests along four paths: Robotics, Machine Learning, Industrial Automation, Complex Systems. Thanks to the design skills acquired in the most innovative technological fields and to the use of the most modern tools which you will develop on your own, you will be able to deal with innovation and development of production, advanced design, programming and management of complex systems in manufacturing or services companies and in public administrations

Characteristics and objectives

This program forms high level professionals in the field of automatic control. They are capable of modeling and designing control systems for industrial applications and have a solid knowledge of the technological processes for which control systems need to be designed. The program is grounded on a rigorous scientific approach. The student is exposed to methodological topics in the fields of mathematics, physics, and information science. He is also trained in the usage of advanced and modern tools for the design of control systems in the most innovative technological fields. The program is designed to form professionals that will be able to:
(i) adapt to the rapid evolution of methods and technology of the information engineering;
(ii) to collaborate with professionals of other fields of engineering (in particular, mechanical, electrical, and process engineering);
(iii) to design, plan, and manage complex and innovative processes and services;
(iv) to work in environments where English (and possibly other languages of the European Union) is the common language.

Occupational opportunities

The occupational opportunities are in research and development, advanced design, plan and management of complex systems, both as free lance professionals and as employees in private and public companies. In particular, occupational opportunities are in electrical and electromechanical engineering companies, chemical companies, aero-spatial companies and, more generally, service providers and managing companies requiring design and development of automatic control systems

Entry requirements
