VIBOT Day 2011


VIBOT Day 2011

VIBOT Day 2011 will be held at the  Science and Technology Park of the University of Girona, SPAIN, on 16th June, 2011. It is a one-day event during which you will learn more about the VIBOT – 3D Vision and Robotics Master program and the collaborative opportunities that are offered to companies whishing to sponsor the program. You will also attend several oral and poster presentations given by newly graduated students that will raise your awareness of the academic excellence of the students as well as the high level of the courses taught in the program. Moreover, this one-day event will also be an opportunity for you to meet and discuss with past, current and future international students. If you are seeking collaborative opportunities and/or looking for outstanding and highly trained candidates prepared to face the challenges of today’s and tomorrow’s world then VIBOT Day is the right place. Do not miss this opportunity.

What is VIBOT?

VIBOT is a two-year Master Program in 3D Vision and Robotics accredited in 2006 by the European Commission in the framework of the Erasmus Mundus program, a co-operation and mobility program of the European Commission in the field of higher education in order to promote the European Union as a centre of excellence in learning around the world. It is the only Erasmus Mundus Master Program in 3D Vision and Robotics among the 103 Erasmus Mundus Master Programs accredited since 2004 in all disciplines. VIBOT Master students have courses in the three collaborating universities: Université de Bourgogne in France, University of Girona in Spain and Heriot-Watt University in Scotland. They spend one semester in each of these three universities and the fourth semester in training. Every year more than 300 international applications are processed and only about 30 students with the best academic records are selected. The admission of the brightest students from all over the world, some of whom were already working in a company, allows to create an international and mobile educated workforce of high level for the European community. VIBOT Master courses are given by faculties and visiting professors who belong to well-known research laboratories that have long-standing reputation for high quality research. The courses start from a comprehensive coverage of the prerequisites in the field of digital imaging (hardware and software) and basic image processing algorithms, and end up with research level teaching of their applications in the fields of robotics, medical imaging and 3D vision systems. The close location of research laboratories on campus allows the faculties to involve students at all stages of research and offer them many opportunities to participate in state-of-the-art research work. Besides technical skills and knowledge, graduate students from the VIBOT Master Program will undoubtedly acquire language skills and a sense of mobility and broadmindedness that will be a real asset in their career. To conclude, it is the commitment of the VIBOT Master program to educate highly trained candidates and leaders, ready to face the challenges and complexities of today’s and tomorrow's society.
