Robotics

Aalborg University’s new M.Sc. programme in Robotics is an engineering programme targeted at B.Sc. graduates interested in robot programming, control systems and software.

Robotics is a cross-curricular master's programme which draws on a number of research environments gathered in the robot research programme, robotics.aau.dk. Students have access to advanced technologies and well-equipped laboratories, and they are taught by highly qualified and committed professors from across the university.

The Robotics educational programme equips you with the skills to tackle challenges in the utilisation of robots and automation, which companies, engineering consultants and service- and research institutes are facing.

You will learn about for example,

  • mobile robots and collaborative robots
  • the interaction between the various components of a robotic system
  • developing and testing robotics hardware and software and integrating them into a broader systems-oriented context

Half of your time is spent on project work in groups according to the AAU Problem Based Learning-model. Apart from good cooperation skills, this will give you the ability to handle technical problem solving at a high level as well as the capacity to work with and manage all phases of a project. However, you are also trained to master development-, analysis- and service tasks on an independent level.

Because your profile is cross-curricular, you will be able to work across technical fields, which is a much sought-after competence by employers. Read more about your career options here.

Application deadline is 1st March.

AS A STUDENT AT AAU, YOU ENCOUNTER …

PROBLEM BASED LEARNING (PBL)

Aalborg University is famous for its problem based learning where you work in a team on a large written assignment often collaborating with an industrial partner. This study method is also called “The Aalborg Model for Problem Based Learning”. The method is highly recognised internationally, and the university is host to a successful UNESCO chair in Problem Based Learning in Engineering Education and a Centre for PBL and Sustainability approved by UNESCO.

The problem based project work at Aalborg University gives you a unique opportunity to acquire new knowledge and competences at a high academic level in an independent manner. You get to apply theory to practice when you work to solve real-life problems, and you will be well prepared for your future career. Learn more about PBL.

TEAMWORK

When doing project work, you work closely in groups with other students. This gives you the opportunity to cooperate, share knowledge and to explore larger and more complex academic problems than what you would have been able to do on your own. Furthermore, the groups serve a social purpose and make it easier for you to get to know your fellow students and feel more at home at the university. Learn more about teamwork at AAU.

COLLABORATION WITH THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY

Aalborg University works closely with the business community. This means that as a student you will work with real issues from companies and organisations. Thus, while you are studying, you already have the opportunity to enhance your academic competences with a business-oriented and practical angle.

YOUR TEACHER DOES RESEARCH

At Aalborg University, teaching is research based. This means that your lecturers are doing research within the same academic field as he or she is teaching. You thus have access to the latest knowledge and dedicated teachers who are passionate about what they teach. The teaching material not only includes books but may also consist of, for example, current academic articles from journals.

WORLD-CLASS LABORATORIES

The laboratories at Aalborg University are of the highest standard, and they play an important role in teaching. You will work under the best laboratory conditions with access to the latest technology, which is vital for your benefiting from the teaching.
