What's next

Graduates of this Master’s programme will have a firm grasp of the technical design of autonomous systems, and in particular will be able to:

  • develop methods to achieve system autonomy
  • design electronic and mechanical hardware components and understand their interactions
  • define the appropriate sensors and process the information provided by these sensors
  • understand the key elements of a robotics expedition: robot location, communication with and between robots, environment mapping
  • integrate all these elements in a robotic system.

The project aspect of this programme focuses on the adaptation of these robotic techniques to the maritime sector.

The programme offers a good balance between theory and practice. It includes an introduction to the realities of the workplace (“Systems Engineering” approach) to promote a smooth and rapid transition to the working world.

This Master programme also offers a gateway to PhD studies.
