Robotics specialization

The robotics specialization trains multidisciplinary engineers who are able to grasp the creation of a robotic system in its entirety. Teaching is geared towards innovation and high technology. With a focus on mechanics, the course associates electronics, computer science and images.

This is an innovative course aimed at training for state-of the art companies which work in the fields of virtual reality and health.
Students are taught the design and development of complex mechanical systems. Oriented towards R & D, these engineers can lead teams specialized in electronics, mechatronics or real-time simulation.

Classes are based on project work, with the support of referential laboratories. In the last year, students can choose from two options: interactive systems or mechatronic systems for health.

In addition to the sectors traditionally open to mechanical engineers, this specialization leads to career prospects in sectors of the future such as virtual reality, artificial intelligence, and medical robotics for reeducation, prosthetics and surgery. A work placement of at least 8 weeks abroad is obligatory to complete the diploma.
