The important application potential of Autonomous Systems and Smart Aerospace vehicles has helped them to become the new focus of education. The last decade has seen a significant increase in Research in Smart Aerospace and Autonomous Systems. Now, the field is sufficiently mature to engage in a procedure of education. Recently, the application of autonomous systems is finding its way into industries and even into the everyday life of people. One can mention several examples such as robotic helicopters for surveillance, aerial photography or farm spraying, cars that park themselves, robotic vacuum cleaners,... It is becoming more important that our students learn about autonomous systems and our engineers have information resources for designing, analyzing and controlling these systems. Since most of the robotic masters deal only with conventional robots, nowadays, students do not have a chance to learn about autonomous systems and engineers who design autonomous robots have to resort to extracting information from research literature to design them, which is tedious for them. The present master provides the theories and methods that are useful for understanding and designing autonomous systems to students and engineers in a form that is detailed and easy to follow. The purpose of this master is to render the students and engineers familiar with the methods of modeling/ analysis/ control that have been proven efficient through research. Similar to the conventional robotic manipulators, the autonomous systems are multidisciplinary machines and can be studied from different points of view. Autonomous systems can also be studied from the artificial intelligence point of view. Covering all these aspects of autonomous systems in one master is almost impossible and each of these aspects has their own audience. For these reasons, the scope of the present master is the mechanics and control of autonomous systems. The master covers the kinematic and dynamic modeling, analysis of autonomous systems as well as the methods suitable for their control. The key feature of the present master is its content which has never been gathered within one master and has never been presented in a form useful to students and engineers. The present master contains the theoretical tools necessary for analyzing the dynamics and control of autonomous systems in one place. The topics that are practical and are of interest to autonomous robot designers have been picked from advanced robotics research literature. These topics are sorted appropriately and will form the contents of the master
The duration of the SAAS Master’s course is two academic years (120 ECTS Credits). Each year is split into two semesters with 30 ECTS each. The first and third semesters will be taught at UEVE. The second semester will be held in Pozan Uuniversity of Technology. The fourth semester is principally devoted to the Master’s thesis.

Objectifs et débouchés
In this discipline, one has to acquire a very good theoretical knowledge which could be developed by a variety of applications. Recently the Polish Minister of Science and Higher Education announced in Poland that education in robotics and automation will become one of the priorities for next few years. In France, this is a major field of interest in relation to competitivity clusters such as ASTECH, PEGASE and AEROSPACE VALLEY in Aeronautics. Generally from a European point of view, academic formation in autonomous systems is vital for the European economy competitivity. As mentioned on the European Union website, Europe needs an effective method that will allow the European Community to take up global leadership in selected strategic policy areas. Europe is home to a large advanced technology based aerospace and robotics industry that supplies a significant part of the world’s commercial requirement in these domains. According to Frost& Sullivan, the associated budget for autonomous aerospace vehicles in Europe will be over $ 1.500 bn in 2016.
This Master is designed to promote a high quality educational offer in the domain of autonomous systems and robotics systems. After graduation, the students will master competences of different areas of this multidisciplinary area: electrical engineering, computer and science engineering, mechanical and science engineering and general training. Students, after passing their master, will have the following skills:
- Scientific and technical knowledge of autonomy engineering and the skills to use this knowledge effectively
- Capacity to develop and design innovative autonomous systems
- Capacity to work both independently and in multidisciplinary teams, to communicate by written and oral presentations, in an international context
- Capacity to transfer high techniques methodology from university to industry
- Competency to manage an engineering team
- Ability to understand different European cultures and languages.
Potential jobs are :
- Government (Law enforcement, border security, coast guard…),
- fire and rescue (forest fires, emergency rescue…),
- energy sector (oil and gas industry distribution infrastructure, electricity grids/distribution network monitoring),
- agriculture – forestry - fisheries (environmental monitoring, crop dusting, fisheries protection…),
- Earth observation – remote sensing (climate monitoring, aerial photography, seismic events, pollution monitoring …),
- communication – broadcasting,
- surveillance …
The capacities necessary in participating in this master are those of autonomous systems: terrestrial or aerial. The members of the consortium are well known for their research in these domains. They also have an extended experience in teaching at the master’s level and PhD thesis supervision. As senior members of the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers), they also have many duties in editing and promoting scientific documentation. Although all the partners work in Control, they do not have exactly the same competencies and as such are complementary to each other. Common research axis allows them to meet to perform common research.
The industry contributions and collaborations of the consortium are extensive. One characteristic of this Master is also industrial experience, and industrial connections will be associated will the Research and Development Project. Students are encouraged to work on a common project, under the supervision of two professors from two different institutions (in general themes such as PERSEUS (CNES), ESMO, Robotics competitions: UAV, soccer …..?). Some of the students will be hosted in the laboratories of UEVE (IBISC, LMEE), PUT (Mobile Robot Laboratory, Chair of control) . Some others will benefit from the extensive network of industrial/research relations of both partners: • The University of Evry works closely with scientists and scholars from CNES (Centre National des Etudes Spatiales), CEA (Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique)... UEVE has close ties with the aerospace industry of Paris area through the pole ASTECH – Paris with companies such as EADS, Thalès, Corsair, SNECMA also in SME like Strategic Airlines, they are used to having intern students from the Engineering master of UEVE… UEVE also has a good record of industrial contacts in the area of vehicular systems, such as INRETS, LCPC. This cooperation leads to cooperative research activities, student internships in the cited companies, and industrial contracts awarded to UEVE. • Poznan University of Technology works closely with scientists and scholars from other technical universities in Poland and European Countries. It cooperates with KUKA (producer of industrial robots), directly in Augsburg, Germany and via official representative of KUKA in Katowice, Poland and Volkswagen in Poznan. All scientific projects related to automation and robotics carried out by the Chair of Control and Systems Engineering are supported by the State Committee for Scientific Research, the governmental institution responsible for research in Poland. Among them are projects on mobile robotics with applications in hospitals and hazardous environments.
