Summary of study programme

The language of instruction is English, but local language and culture courses of the hosting countries are included in the programme of study.
The aim of the first two semesters is to provide the students with a solid interdisciplinary background across the main areas of robotics (Cognition, Action, Perception). During the third semester, depending on the host institution, the student will deal with one or more of the following sectors: industrial robot systems, service robots (domestic, health, rehabilitation, leisure), intelligent vehicules and security robots. The fourth semester is dedicated to the Master's Thesis. The student carries out his/her research work under the joint supervision of two advisors from two different consortium institutions.

Mobility scheme

The programme of study lasts two academic years (120 ECTS) split into four equally loaded semesters.
Students attend the EMARO programme at two different partner institutions: the student has to spend the first two semesters in one European institution and the second two semesters in another European institution.


The language of instruction and examinations is English. The thesis is also written and defended in English.
To facilitate the integration of the students in the hosting country, local language courses are part of the curriculum. Mastering the local language will be important if the student pursues to PhD in one of the hosting countries.
