Specialization : ROBOTICS

Department Heads :
Jean-Luc Ricart (jean-luc.ricart @ u-psud.fr) & Christophe Grand (christophe.grand @ u-psud.fr) / CRIIP & CRIC Projects: Bertrand Manuel (bertrand.manuel @ u-psud.fr) & Pascal Martinelli (pascal.martinelli @ u-psud.fr)

Introduction: The goal of this training program is to bestow upon our technicians skills in robotics and industrial automatism. Candidates are taught about the technological world through an industrial approach. This prepares them for entry in the professional world. They work on process simulation tools such as ROBCAD which prepares them for immediate placement as a designer or systems integrator in automatism production. Participation in the Robotics Cup “E=M6” and in the technical menagerie, through projects, helps candidates develop their skills and ability to work in a group.

 Possible Candidats must possess one of the following:
Génie Mécanique et Productique, Génie Electrique et Informatique Industrielle
- BTS CPI, MAI, Electrotechnique et électronique
- L2 Sciences ….

Career Paths: This degree leads to careers in engineering design and method departments, in research and development, or in service and production of designers and integrators of production equipment. Jobs are usually:
- Robot Research and Development Technician dealing with robotized and computer oriented systems
- Computer Oriented and Robotized Production Line Installation Technician or Simulation Technicien
- Computer Oriented and Robotized System Maintenance Technician

Unit Manager in an engineering or production department who coordinates industrial research and development operations.
- Installation, adjustment, and maintenance of industrial systems.
- Robotic cell conception, simulation and installation projects.
- Simulation of computer oriented and robotized production lines.
- Application or Process Feasibility Studies.
- Design and manufacture of industrial robots equipped with sensors or vision systems.
