How is the Master Degree Study Program in Robotics Organized?At master level, courses, seminars and practical applications in Robotics are carried out in the afternoon, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., in order to offer students the possibility to hold jobs in companies. The master degree in Robotics is mainly focused on industrial robotics because companies request this knowledge most.
The study program must comply with the Romanian legislation, which requires a certain number of hours and a well-defined relationship between courses, projects and practical applications. Essentially, the disciplines have an accentuated practical character. Technologies currently met in industry are used. The exams are of vocational nature (based on practical problems). Students need to know how to apply knowledge in concrete problems, not to memorize theories.
The study program has 4 semesters, of which the last semester is dedicated entirely to the elaboration of the final project (the dissertation project). The program runs in English in Cluj-Napoca and in Romanian at the Bistrita extension.
In order to create competences appropriate to the requirements of the companies and considering that the design part of the robots is addressed in the BSc study program, the master study program emphasis is placed on the exploitation of robots in specific processes of production-driven companies. In this sense, a package of disciplines refers to the programming of robots and their communication with other robots or other peripherals (e.g. computer, mobile phone) through client-server technologies (TCP / IP) or through the cloud using IoT technologies. Another package of disciplines refers to the design of systems in which robots are integrated and mechatronic interfaces of robots with other intelligent systems. The third package of disciplines deals with the control of robotic processes and their extension towards industrial automation with the help of PLCs. The fourth package of disciplines is intended for the planning of robotic applications for various specific cases in the industry, their maintenance and appropriate use. The most common robotic technologies used at this master’s study program are met in companies from Romania and Europe.
The master study program in Robotics is designed to be accessible to any graduate from the engineering field, not just to the graduates of bachelor's degrees in robotics.
