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 2012/2013.

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 
http://www.master-ris.unina.it/index.php?lang=en. A brief description of 
the goal of the programme is attached below.

The call for admission will be available later in November. However, 
pre-enrollment is already open
and is warmly encouraged!
Prospective students will be able to apply for a nice and inexpensive 
accommodation. Additional details are available at

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

Looking forward to receiving many applications!

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 

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
  * 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
