Dear Roboticists around the World,

we are launching a new Master's Course on Robotics and Intelligent 
Systems at University of Naples Federico II in the forthcoming 
academic year. Despite the name *Master's*, this is a one-year 
post-graduate degree after the Laurea (Italian equivalent of 
Master's). The objectives and organization of the course can be found 
in the attached flyer. An excerpt is given below, whereas more 
information can be found on the website at

The call for admission will be available in September and fellowships 
will be granted to the most meritorious students. However, 
pre-enrollment is already open and is warmly encouraged!

For all details and further information, please refer to Ms. Daniela 
Passariello <master-ris at unina.it> who is in charge of the Master's Secretariat.

All the best for the rest of the summer.

Bruno Siciliano

The Master's Degree in Robotics and Intelligent Systems (RIS) is 
targeted at graduates in scientific fields. It aims to train 
professionals who will be able to design, integrate, plan and manage 
robotic devices and intelligent systems.

During the course, participants will deepen their knowledge of 
engineering methodologies and technologies in controls, computers, 
electronics and mechanics. They will also acquire knowledge about 
logics, cybernetics, artificial intelligence and cognitive science 
within a truly interdisciplinary framework.

The Master's graduates will aspire to cover professional roles both 
in companies dealing with robotics and automation, and in all areas 
such as medicine and health, safety and security, transportation, 
entertainment and home applications, where innovation is pursued 
through the introduction and integration of robots and intelligent systems.

The Master's will be taught entirely in English, with the aim of 
providing graduates with an authentic training for global oriented 
job placement, while attracting students from European and 
non-European countries.

The main goals of the Master's are:
    * to disseminate the science of robotics and intelligent systems, 
through the assessment and transfer of technologies and multiple disciplines;
    * to provide a high-quality, prestigious and attractive training 
programme for foreign students;
    * to create a pool of resources for developing new ideas in a 
high-tech and innovative field;
    * to offer sponsoring companies an opportunity to recruit 
high-potential human resources with specific skills in the area of 
robotics and intelligent systems;
    * to offer the Master's graduates an opportunity to network with 
company management as well as with the main stakeholders in industry 
and research.
