The remarkable boom of mechanical engineering industry in the region makes demands on specialists in the branches of service robotics, industrial robotics and mechatronics and their research and development capacities. Therefore there is a big call for absolvents of our specialization Robotics and also for cooperation with the team of department’s employees and PhD. students. This concerns not only automotive industry with huge numbers of industrial robots in use (for example Sungwoo-Hitech, Hyundai Nošovice, ABBB robotics), but also development of service robots. The science and research orientation of the department is in correspondence with that. The department has its technical background in the Robotics Centre and also in the recently built Center of Advanced Innovation Technologies of VŠB, mechatronics division, on the university grounds.
