Information and Communication Technology – Robotics

Nowadays, it is almost impossible to come across an activity within electrical engineering that is not interconnected with information technology. Thus, these areas have been joined into the second cycle study programme of Electrical engineering and information technology. 

Duration of study programme: 2 years
ECTS points: 120
Qualification awarded: Master of Science in Information and Communication Technology

Robotics as a multidisciplinary scientific and technological field comprises the following knowledge: determination of requirements and criteria for control systems design related to flow of matter, energy and information; research, development and implementation of methods for information processing and data acquisition in the control systems; research, development and implementation of methods for the system analysis, the system design and the system optimization; development, design and implementation of hardware and software for computer control of systems; research, development and design of control algorithms for robots and robotized systems in industry, services and households.
