New Master in Robotics at EPFL

Program’s Objectives

This program provides education on the theory, technology and practice of intelligent robots, such as mobile robots, wearable robots, robotic manipulators, autonomous and brain-interfaced robots. In addition to classes spanning from electromechanical systems to advanced artificial intelligence, the program offers a large set of hands-on activities where students learn by designing, prototyping and validating robotic systems.

Focus on hands-on Learning

Both core and optional classes include hands-on exercises aimed at applying theoretical aspects to real systems. In addition, for semester and interdisciplinary projects, as well as the final master’s thesis, students work with researchers on challenging problems within EPFL robotics laboratories or in the industry.

Entry Requirements

Candidates must hold a Bachelor’s degree in microengineering. Holders of a Bachelor’s degree in computer science, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, or any related field with an interdisciplinary background (mastering at least two of the three following fields: computer science, electronics, and mechanical engineering) may also be accepted.
