Robotics and Robotic Technologies (RaRT)

The graduates of the RaRT study programme will be employed in scientific research, development and design organizations, where they will be solving the problematic of complex automated and robotic systems. They will be able to design, program and animate robotic devices, as well as design and optimize technologies related to the work of robots. Furthermore, they gain the ability of visual system application in collaboration with robotic technology. Once the graduate gains practical management experience, he or she fulfils the necessary prerequisites in becoming a design workplace development team coordinator.
