Students of the Masters programme Cybernetics and Robotics will acquire advanced knowledge of cybernetics, robotics, automatic control, diagnostics and sensors in the compulsory subjects of the programme and will also develop their creative engineering skills in the subjects of project type. Students study general field called Cybernetics and Robotics and can choose courses from four available specialisations. However, they are still able to gain an insight into other sectors of the programme by selecting a required elective course (this is a denoted as a compulsory subject in one of four specialisations), and also by the choice of their optional courses. On the other hand, students of a general field - deliberately named the same way as the course itself - can direct their way through the programme according to their own needs, by choosing their required elective courses in a so to speak zigzag manner - out of the compulsory subjects for all specializations. Thus, while maintaining the depth of knowledge in some areas, our students are also able to broaden their horizons in other fields, which helps them in their future career and opens them the doors to te rest of the world.
Cybernetics and robotics - study programme
Provides a wider portfolio of knowledge than specialized fields, but it is not as thorough. Students pass the programme by selecting an appropriate combination (zig-zag) of required elective subjects. These come from a list of compulsory subjects of the individual specialized fields.
Cybernetics and robotics - programme structure
Robotics - specialized field
Specialization in advanced mobile and collective robotics and artificial intelligence. Deep knowledge of programming real-time systems and industrial information systems.
Robotics - specialisation
Systems and control - specialized field
Specializing in automatic control of engineering, biological, medical, transport and other real systems. Deep knowledge of optimal and robust control; estimation, filtering and detection; nonlinear systems, discrete event systems; dynamics and control networks.
Systems and control - specialisation
Sensors and instrumentation - specialized field
Specializing in advanced sensors, videometry and non-contact measurement, data acquisition and transfer, processing and digitizing signals and virtual instrumentation.
Sensors and instrumentation - specialisation
Aerospace systems - specialized field
Specializing in avionics and space systems and technologies. Deep knowledge of aircraft instrumentation, flight control systems, integrated avionics, aviation radio systems and space engineering.
Aerospace systems - specialisation
Continuity with the bachelors programme
The Masters course is loosely based on the undergraduate programme Cybernetics and robotics, but it is open to graduates from other programmes, faculties and schools. A completed bachelors degree in any programme of a similar focus is the main requirement. Any lack of knowledge of students coming from other faculties or universities can be supplemented by elective courses during the first year of the programme. This is thanks to the variety of availeable elective subjects.None of the fields requires specialization in the previous bachelors course.
