Intelligent Mobile Systems (IMS) - The Program

Handbook valid until Batch 2019/Class of 2022! ➤ NEW PROGRAM: ROBOTICS AND INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS (RIS) // BSc

Robotics and intelligent systems are more and more present in everyday life. Artificial intelligence and Machine learning are at the forefront of today’s interconnected society.

Automation with some sort of embedded intelligence is now the norm rather than the exception. This Intelligent Mobile System program covers engineering methods and technologies that are relevant for freeing artificial mobile systems from permanent human supervision, to enable systems to perform autonomous intelligent operations. Application areas include the automotive and transport industries, robotics and automation, communication technologies, marine technology, and logistics. Hands-on experience with technical systems and methods is provided in first-class labs across the entire program.
