University of São Paulo: USP in São Carlos launches unique specialization course in robotics and automation


The School of Engineering of São Carlos (EESC) at USP launched the Specialization Course in Industrial Automation and Robotics, in EAD format, aimed at professionals who want or already have contact with automated and robotic systems and who need to have access to knowledge from the from the most basic to the most in-depth, such as carrying out projects in these areas. The course costs R$ 400.00 for registration and 12 monthly fees of R$ 1,500.00, but it is possible to apply for scholarships, according to the public notice on this link .

“These are sectors that grow at a faster rate than professional training. Companies in Brazil and Latin America demand people with this type of knowledge, which motivated us not only to create this specialization but also to offer it 100% in distance learning format, allowing interested parties who live or work in distant regions of São Paulo have the opportunity to do it”, highlights Marcelo Becker, professor at EESC and course coordinator. Classes will be synchronous and asynchronous and all assessments will take place remotely.

To meet the needs of the professional market, the syllabus of the course includes a grid with various disciplines, focused not only on automation, but also on design, such as instrumentation, sensors, Artificial Intelligence and robotic systems. Embedded Systems, Control Systems, Walking Robots, Neural Networks and Machine Learning, Industrial and Embedded Networks, Hydraulics and Pneumatics for Automation, and Fundamentals of Design Focused on Customization are some of the classes that are part of the program of this specialization, that is, essential knowledge so that the professional can work both in industries and in research.

At the end of the course, the student will have a complete understanding of automated systems and robotics, so that they will be able to develop a conclusion work focusing from the automation of a specific system to the development of an aerial robot or a terrestrial robot, with wheels, tracks or legs, for example.

Interested parties from all over Brazil can apply until November 30, on the website , where the candidate can also obtain information about the selection and approval criteria. The start of classes is scheduled for March 1, 2023.
