Talent Incubator for Robotics Engineers
Already today, robots are no longer the exclusive domain of automobile and electronics factories; in fact, they also serve humans in everyday life: They cut lawns, help as guides in museums and nursing homes, or explore places which are too dangerous for humans such as, for example, unexploded bombs or damaged nuclear power plants. And in the future, these artificial helpers will cooperate even closer with humans – for example, during medical surgeries or intricate assembly tasks – and above all, they will open up new fields of application as autonomous robots. The Diplom program of studies in Robotics at Freiberg University of Mining and Technology (TU Bergakademie Freiberg) qualifies and prepares future engineers to help organize and manage this technological transition in an interdisciplinary manner. Towards this end, the program combines mathematical and natural scientific fundamentals with information science, electrical engineering, and mechanical engineering. “From our perspective, robotics is THE pioneering technology of the future,” emphasizes Prof. Heinrich Jasper, the TU Bergakademie’s academic advisor. “Those who graduate from this program of studies are highly coveted experts in all business branches and sectors.”
The regular period of studies for this degree is ten semesters, which also include an internship semester, and can be completed with the degree of a graduated Diplom engineer. The focal points of this program include, for example, intelligent, learning, autonomous, humanoid, and collaborative robots as well as their sensor and actuator technologies. The program of studies is part of the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science. Graduates have excellent opportunities in pursuing interesting professional careers in industrial enterprises, logistics, the transport industry, the service sector as well as in robot development and manufacture.
