The RVMI lab is highly involved in the following two educations:
Imagine fleets of smart robots that collaborate in manufacturing facilities, advanced warehouse logistics solutions such as the Amazon warehouses, crew-less cargo ships, smart grids, or interconnected smart home appliances. Those are just a few examples of what we call autonomous systems.
The Master’s programme in Autonomous Systems aims at providing graduates with competences to solve complex problems related to the design and deployment of autonomous systems, exploiting the latest advances in artificial intelligence, big data analysis, digitization, sensing, optimisation, information technologies, and systems engineering. The program has been developed to build both theoretical understanding and practical experience of students, applicable to Industry 4.0, robotics and autonomous logistics, among other application areas.
This bachelor could also be called “Robotics and computer science with applications in Industry”. Why? Because in order to get the modern technology to work, such as the technologies behind companies like Google, Amazon, Volkswagen, Grundfos, Lufthansa, DHL, Mærsk, Novonordisk you must understand how these technologies work. This bachelor will equip you with the necessary knowledge to work and drive innovation in companies like the above. You will get a solid basis in robotics and computer science. After that, we will look into
- technological aspects: datamining, machine intelligence and Neural networks, image processing, robot control. And you will get the chance to play with arduino boards, quadropters, real robots and possibly even google glass.
- the humans in the loop: the technologies have to work with and be attractive to customers, shop floor workers, sales representatives, etc. It is hard work to make it easy!!
- business aspects behind and business needs for these technologies
There are two big areas of innovation in companies: Innovation in new products that the end-user can see, and innovation inside the company to make these products better and cheaper. Volkswagen has innovation in cars but also innovation in producing them, which keeps them competetive. Lufthansa flies passengers from A to B, but they are also very innovative with datamining to make sure that planes are fully booked so that they can optimize prices. DHL has to innovatie in the services they are providing, but to be able to deliver these services as good as possible, internal innovation is even more important. You will be able to work in both areas of innovation, and you will be able to test your own creativity in the semester project that take up 50% of your studying time.
If you are one of the following:
- you like to work with the technology, get your fingers dirty and want to make technical innovations (hardcore engineer)
- you like to work with the various end-users (customers, shopfloor workers, etc.) and use, adapt and optimise these technologies to end-user needs (the humanistic engineer)
- you like to analyze working procedures (processes) in companies and public services in order to imporove them using latest technologies (the manager)
then this bachelor is for you.
