Main characteristics of ARIA

The Master ARIA is designed to promote a high-quality educational offer for the european and international students in the area of Automatic Control, and Production systems. Students may take the master as a professional terminal degree, or join PhD programmes afterwards.

The quality of this master has been recognized by the European Union by supporting the masters course "EMARO - European Master on Advanced Robotics" in the framework of the programme Erasmus Mundus.

The programme of study lasts two academic years denoted by M1 and M2. The first year courses are given in English, it also contains French Language course in order that the students can follow the scientific courses in French during the second year. The second year courses are also in English for ROBA, but most of courses are in French in ASI and TRCS.

The programme of M1 is the same as that of Erasmus Mundus master emaro.

To apply for M1 students must hold a first university degree with 180 ECTS, after at least three years of university studies (at the level of bachelor of science).

Admission in M2 can be accepted for students who have a university degree with 240 ECTS after at least four years (at the level of M1-ARIA) and are fluent in reading, speaking and writing French (and English in case of application for ROBA).
