Erasmus Mundus European Master's in Vision and Robotics (VIBOT)
The European Master's in Vision and Robotics (VIBOT) is a European course organised by the Vision and Robotics European Consortium (VREC), consisting of the University of Burgundy (France), the University of Girona (Spain) and Heriot-Watt University (United Kingdom).
This masters responds to current industry needs in the area of quality control and process automation. The two main areas of study are computer vision and robotics.
Access and admission
Emphasis will be placed on academic records that reflect theoretical knowledge of algorithmics and/or programming languages, knowledge of algebra and geometry, and of numerical systems for solving equations. Likewise, it is recommended that applicants have certain knowledge of digital circuits, which are the basis of how a computer works, and real-time architectures.
Priority will be given to students who meet the admissions requirements established by the consortium of three universities and governed by the European Union policy related to Erasmus Mundus master's programmes. Specifically, to be admitted, students must demonstrate:
- Excellent results in their undergraduate degree programmes (minimum of 180 ECTS credits) in industrial or electrical engineering, electronics, computer science, robotics, physics, mathematics and other degree programmes with similar basic contents.
- An ability to follow instruction in English, corresponding to a score of 550 on the TOEFL, 213 on the computer-based TOEFL, 6.5 on the IELTS or a C level on the Cambridge Proficiency Certificate.
- Motivation to complete the coursework and apply the knowledge gained in their professional development.
In addition, the admission of non-European students must comply with the European Union quota system introduced among institutions and countries to award the Erasmus Mundus grants.
Pre-registration & registration:
Given the international character of the VIBOT Master's, the registration is done centrally. At www.vibot.org, within the section “Application procedure”, you will find instructions to pre-register online and the documents you need to submit.
All of those opportunities made possible by the skills provided in the master's and from its clear international character:
a) extensive knowledge and competencies in computer vision techniques, signal and image processing and robotics;
b) critical analysis, system evaluation and project and experimental design related to techniques and methodologies in a specialised area of research as well as their application in and transfer to local industries;
c) oral and written communication skills, formulating and solving problems, and process planning according to academic and professional standards;
d) working independently and as a group leader and ease of adaptation to different professional roles and situations;
e) and skills for effective interaction in a multicultural and multilingual environment.
Admission to the doctoral programme
The successful completion of this master’s degree provides access to the research period of a doctoral programme. Bear in mind that each programme can set additional requirements and criteria for selection and admission of students, such as specific complementary training courses.
