Enjoy the Adaptive Robotics Minor in the Spring Semester

In the tech-industry more and more robots are used. In many situations robots and humans have to co-operate in an dynamic environment. In the last few years many technological advancements have been made and a lot of opportunities for creative, technological solutions exist in the field of adaptive robotics. Curious and innovative engineers from various disciplines can make a difference in this world where a lot is still to be discovered. The minor adaptive robotics wants to be an incubator for students in the broad field of robotics, in which they co-operate with the industry and use their talents and energy to deal with future challenges. Within the minor Adaptive Robotics, students gain expertise in 6 adaptive robotic related fields. These fields are Principles of Robotics (robotic algorithms and mathematics), Vision & Perception, ROS (Robot Operating System), Robot Safety, Model Based System Engineering, and Hardware Abstraction. The minor requires the student to have a technology education as background (Mechanical Engineering, Mechatronics, Electrical Engineering, or Information Technology) or that the student can show to have the necessary technological background. This minor requires an open mind and a proactive attitude. Do you have what it takes?

Adaptive Robotics minor

The Adaptive Robotics minor is a project based minor, in which the student will work together in a group.

The minor is divided in four phases. In the first phase, after a rapid introduction in the SCRUM methodology you start a two week mechanical oriented project. In the second phase, through several workshops and a new project in the field of robotics you discover the expertise’s that you would like to develop further during the course of this minor. In the third phase you get the chance to, in a multidisciplinary team project, excel in your talents and your technical skills under close supervision of your coaches/teachers. In the final phase you wrap-up your main project and you achieve your final learning goals.

How will your course programme be recognised by your home university?

Fontys will provide you with a so-called ‘Transcript of Records’, which will clarify the results that you have achieved. Depending on your results, you will receive a maximum of 30 ECTS credits. ECTS credits are recognised throughout Europe. The agreement between your home university and Fontys University of Applied Sciences will usually include a condition whereby the credits that you obtain will be recognised and transferred into the records kept by your home university.

How to apply as an exchange student

Applications should always be submitted via the International Exchange (or Erasmus) Officer at the home university. If several versions of the programme are offered, please indicate for which version you would like to apply to (Programme I, Programme II, Programme III, etc.) This officer will send your application request (nomination) to Fontys. Once Fontys has accepted the application, your Fontys study department will send you a link to a web application called Mobility Online. Added to the link you will receive all necessary information and a manual. Please take a look at this website to see how it works.
