Autonomous Robotics

Students who choose this major learn to design, build, program and work with robots, particularly mobile ones, for use in all sorts of environments (sea, land and air).
Career prospects

Graduates can pursue engineering careers (consulting, R&D, design, etc.) in research laboratories or large groups and startups.

Course content

•   Automation (control laws)
•   Computing (language algorithms, etc.)
•   Perception (vision, machine learning)
•   Artificial Intelligence
•   Modeling / Simulation
•   Navigation (Kalman filter, intervals)
•   Mechanics
•   Experiments
•   etc.

Program Strengths

Numerous robotic curricular and extracurricular projects

  • Students get to work on numerous applied projects both as part of the training program and for the robotics club. Projects focus on designing and building robots, robot coordination, etc. ENSTA Bretagne students compete in numerous robotic competitions in France and abroad.

Earn a double degree

  • Students in this major can choose to simultaneously follow the Dynamic Systems and Signals track of the Master in Complex Systems Engineering of the Université d’Angers (all courses are taught in Brest). This double degree is recommended for students who wish to pursue a PhD.
