The (MIR) Marine and Maritime Intelligent Robotics Master, innovatively combines Robotics and Artificial Intelligence in the context of advancing marine and maritime science and their technological applications.
MIR Master programme aims at building the capacity of future engineers to enable advancements in the development and operation of new robotics systems with far-reaching impact on techniques necessary for ocean exploration and exploitation.
Such systems will necessarily use a new breed of autonomous surface and underwater robots: teleoperated/semi-autonomous robots, specialized robots for deep sea operations, and robots for infrastructure inspection and maintenance, often working in cooperation and networked via aerial, acoustic, and optical links.
The challenges that lie ahead can only be met by bringing together fast-paced developments in robotics and AI methods with a view to sustained autonomy and on-line decision making in the unforgiving marine environment.
The MIR Master’s is designed to provide training in state-of-the-art applied robotics targeted at enhancing the efficiency, health, safety and environmental performance of the offshore industry, maritime operations, and marine science studies.
