EIT Digital AUS track


This Master 1 level track (4th year of engineering study) in Autonomous Systems (AUS) covers all the fundamental aspects to understand and design autonomous systems. The core technical areas are about: modeling dynamic systems, parameter and state estimation, control, artificial intelligence, and robotics.

This Master 1 AUS is organized in two semesters during which you can obtain (at least) 60 ECTS (European Credits Transfer System), divided into:

  • 36 ECTS in technical courses,
  • 24 ECTS in Innovation and Entrepreneurship (I&E). This is achieved by attending: the corresponding courses offered at UCA in I&E (see below) and the Summer School (4 ECTS) organized by the Master School Office, at the end of the academic year Master 1.

  Each student entering Master 1 AUS may come from a different background (computer science, electrical engineering, etc.). Therefore, personal guidance is provided to help students make their choice of elective lectures at the begining of the first semester.

Program (2020 - 2021) (subject to modification)

Each student should acquire at least 60 ECTS during the first year of Master AUS. The lectures and ECTS are distributed as follows:

  • Compulsory technical courses (24 ECTS),
  • Elective technical courses (select 12 ECTS, plus additional ones in the second semester if you wish, in the lists below),
  • Innovation and Entrepreneurship courses: I&E (24 ECTS).
