Choosing a master's? Online Open Day 19 November

The University of Twente offers Robotics specialisations in several master programmes. In September 2022 the University of Twente is intending to start a Master’s programme in Robotics.

Master's in Robotics

The University of Twente is planning to start a Master’s programme in Robotics from September 2022. This programme will teach you how to control and design robotic systems, including their interaction with the environment. 

A robot can be described as a mechanism that moves in an environment with at least some autonomy and/or some interaction. The Master’s Programme Robotics will cover all these aspects by offering three tracks:

  • Mechatronics and Physical AI
  • Algorithms and Software AI
  • Human Robot Interaction and Hybrid AI.

While specialising in one of these tracks a strong robotics basis is provided to all students through courses on Modelling and Dynamics, Control System Design, Programming, System Identification and Machine Learning, Systems Engineering and a course on Ethical, Legal, Societal and Economical aspects in Robotics.

Admission & enrolment Master's in Robotics 

If you want to start this new master's in September 2022, you can sign up for Systems & Control first and transfer to the new master when it starts. You can also stay in Systems & Control, attending elective courses of the new master and transfer at a later time. For more information about admissions you can visit the Systems & Control website or contact:
