Robotics

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.

Program’s objectives

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.

This program gives students a well-rounded education with practical experience, and leads to careers in a wide range of fields where robotics technologies are increasingly adopted, such as: biomedical technologies; logistics and transportation; aviation and drones; autonomous cars; industry 4.0; smart houses; environmental technology. In addition, students can benefit from EPFL’s strong innovation ecosystem to invent new systems and applications, and start up their own company.

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.
