Dear Roboticists around the World,

after the success of the first edition, we are glad to announce the 
launch of the SECOND EDITION of the Master's Course in Robotics and 
Intelligent Systems at University of Naples Federico II for the 
academic year 2011/2012.

Be aware of the matter that despite the name *Master's*, this is a 
one-year post-graduate degree after the "Laurea Magistrale" (Italian 
equivalent of M.Sc.). The objectives and organization of the course 
and all other details can be found on the website at 
A brief description of the goal of the programme is attached below.

The call for admission will be available in October. However, 
pre-enrollment is already open
and is warmly encouraged!
Prospective students are also invited to apply for a nice and 
inexpensive full-board college accommodation by 30th September 2011, 
even before the formal enrollment to the programme. Additional 
details are available at

For further information, please refer to Ms. Daniela Passariello 
<<mailto:master-ris at unina.it>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
Master RIS Coordinator

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.
