Robots are an essential part of assembly lines in automated industrial mass production. In the last years, so called lightweight robots that can be safely operated near humans without physical barriers have become broadly available. Recent progress in the field of artificial intelligence renders using cognitive cobots for partial automation in small enterprises or as service robots at home feasible. A growing demand for experts who can design, install, and maintain such systems in various application domains is, hence, to be expected.

The Institute for Computer Science at Bayreuth University is offering the certificate program “Robotics and Automation” to provide master’s students with a formal proof of qualification in these areas. Associated courses cover the field comprehensively by addressing the foundations of robotics, perception and planning methods for intelligent systems, and simulation-based planning of production systems. Theoretical knowledge can be consolidated in practical courses with topics matching the certificate qualification goals. 

The certificate is pursuable for students who are formally enrolled in one of the following Master programs: Computer Science, Angewandte Informatik, Informatik.

It can be obtained “alongside” the master’s studies by obtaining 60 credits from the below list of eligible courses. At least 8 credit points have to be obtained from Section D – Projects, Seminars, Master thesis to cover practical competencies.


Students who are interested in obtaining the Robotics and Automation Certificate or who want to subscribe to the program (informally) are asked to contact:
