Dear future roboticists,

The call for applications for the 3rd Robotics Craftsmanship International Academy (RobotCraft 2018) is open! So far, we already received a record of 154 applications for the 2018 version, from which 31 applicants were already selected. Based on our past experience, we're likely to reach the 3 digits this year!

RobotCraft is something in-between a summer camp and a collective internship promoted by Ingeniarius, a company devoted to the development of robotic solutions and other hi-tech devices, and University of Coimbra, through their Robotics Club and the Institute of Systems and Robotics. Back in 2016, RobotCraft received 65 students coming from 18 different countries. These numbers were only beaten by the second edition of the programme, RobotCraft 2017, which exceeded all expectations with 84 promising future roboticists coming from 21 different countries. RobotCraft has received students from all over the world and fields, coming from Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Computer Sciences, Physics, Business, and others, with the common objective of developing mobile robots from scratch. 

RobotCraft is way more than the typical classroom learning or even laboratory work - it is a way of living for 2 months, bounded by the common interest of learning robotics. Students will not only explore the multiple crafts around robotics, such as CAD, mechatronics, Arduino programming, ROS and AI, but also balance these technical skills promoted by mentors with keynote presentations from invited speakers.

If you have any doubt about the programme, contact us or your own national contact point (NCP):

See you next summer in Portugal!
