Center for Technologies in Robotics and Mechatronics Components

Competence Center of the National Technological Initiative (NTI) of Russia in the area of Robotics and Mechatronics was merged into the Innopolis University in 2018. Here, in cooperation with the participants of the technology consortium, we are developing new educational programs and implementing innovation projects for businesses and public customers. Professionals of the center are involved in developing the robotics roadmap till 2024.

Activities of the Center are aimed at performing scientific research, developing educational programs in the priority areas of robotics, and implementing industrial projects together with the participants of the technology consortium. At the Innopolis University, the basics of robotics and mechatronics are taught under bachelor’s degree, master’s degree, postgraduate, and pre-university programs. International project-oriented schools are held for the graduates. A separate line of activities is corporate education that includes the packages of training programs for using robotics technologies in industry.
