Robotics is an interdisciplinary field of research and at the same time a key technology that contributes significantly to solving societal and economic challenges and to improving our quality of life. The study profile is designed in an interdisciplinary way, so that the main issues of autonomous and cognitive robotics are addressed both from the algorithmic point of view (e.g. perception, action generation, learning) and from the technical point of view (construction and function of robot components and robot systems).

Graduates of the study profile will have competencies to design, program, and evaluate robotic systems. These include: mathematical and algorithmic foundations of robotics, programming by demonstration and imitation learning, active visual and haptic perception, learning procedures in robotics; grasping and mobile packaging, architectures in robotics, simulation in robotics, humanoid robotics, service robotics, medical robotics, wearable robot technologies (exoskeletons, prostheses/orthotics), industrial robotics, Industry 4.0, process automation, and human-robot interfaces for intuitive robot programming.
