The President of the University of Toulon, Xavier Leroux will present on Friday a new international master’s degree in intelligent marine and maritime robotics that will welcome its first students next academic year.

Winner of the prestigious Erasmus Mundus scholarship, the University of Toulon will open an international master’s degree in intelligent marine and maritime robotics (MIR) next academic year, which will be presented to the press this Friday.

A European grant of €4.3 million will provide scholarships for excellence to students from all over the world.

MIR combines robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) in the context of advanced marine and maritime sciences and their technological applications. It provides advanced training in applied robotics to improve the efficiency, safety, security and environmental performance of the offshore industry and marine operations.

This international Master’s degree brings together 58 academic and industrial partners in 21 countries, including 3 main ones: Norway, Spain and Portugal.

The Master students will spend their first year at the University of Toulon (coordinator of the MIR programme) and their second year at one of the three academic partners: the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), the Spanish University Jaume I (UJI) of the Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) of the University of Lisbon in Portugal.
