About this program

Bachelor's Degree in Robotics Engineering

The new Bachelor’s degree in Robotics Engineering seeks to form professionals who are capable of taking on and resolving highly complex technological problems, ranging from robot design to their real-world implementation.

Robotics influences all aspects of everyday life. It is a transversal discipline that encompasses a broad spectrum of technologies, and according to a recent study by MIT, it is one the 10 technologies of the future.

This degree program offers solid interdisciplinary training with its focus on Robotics. Students will acquire knowledge and competencies in basic core engineering subjects such as Mathematics, Physics, Programming, Graphic Expression, and Industrial Organization, etc. At the same time, students will receive a sound education in Robotics in a broad and transversal sense, gaining knowledge on robot conception, design, and control, computer vision, human-robot interaction, social robots, soft robotics, collaborative robots, industry 4.0, and robotic ethics, among others.

The Bachelor’s Degree in Robotics Engineering is taught in English, with special laboratories for small-group lab sessions. Students in the program have the opportunity to carry out professional internships in the sector’s leading companies.
