Program description

Artificial Intelligence and Automation Engineering

The MSc in Artificial Intelligence and automation engineering aims at providing high-level competences for the design, management, development and innovation in the fields of advanced hardware and software architectures, and of control systems and robotics. In particular, the program is focused on human-machine interaction in a wide sense, spanning topics such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, high performance processing of massive data collections, human-robot interfaces, and systems for production automation.

Curricula available:

  • Intelligent systems
  • Robotics and automation

Objectives

This is a 2-year graduate programme taught entirely in English, offered to both national and international students.

The program provides advanced competences in the area of computer and automation engineering, with courses covering topics such as: engineering tools for the design, evaluation and programming of high-performance and parallel computer architectures; artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques needed to implement intelligent systems; design patterns and methodologies for the implementation of complex software systems and distributed applications; advanced interfaces for the interaction with robots, such as vision systems and haptic interfaces; techniques for the analysis and design of discrete event systems and of multivariable and nonlinear control systems, with applications to robot control, path planning and multi-agent systems; mathematical and algorithmic tools for optimization over networks.
