Course Outline in accordance with the principles of HQAA: 

The main goal a student must achieve by attending Robotics course is to design, manufacture, control, and programming of robots and how to use robots for problem solving. The Student can build a background of control processes, sensors, and algorithms used in humans, animals, and machines as well as the application of control processes and algorithms to designing robots.

Description / Outline: 
Lectures of the course (2 hours per week) also include:
  • Understanding of the dynamics and control of robotic devices.
  • Understanding of cognitive and biological paradigms for system design.
  • Ability to estimate quantitatively the behavior of dynamic systems.
  • Facility in the application of decision-making concepts, including expert systems, and genetic algorithms.
  • Familiarity with the components of systems for decision-making and control, such as sensors, actuators, and computers.
  • Ability to apply a systems-engineering approach to the analysis, design, and testing of robotic devices.
  • Demonstration of computational problem-solving, through thorough knowledge, application, and development of analytical software.
  • Appreciation of the historical context within which robotics and intelligent systems have evolved.
  • Appreciation of the global and ethical impact of robotics and intelligent systems in the context of contemporary society.
  • Competence in presenting ideas orally and in writing.
