Introduction

HISTORY

In 1471 thanks to a Bull of Pope Sixtus IV the Republic of Genoa can confer degrees. In 1670 the Jesuit University is founded and under the French Empire it is merged to the Imperial University of Paris. After Napoleon’s fall it is again within the Kingdom of Sardinia. In the entrance hall of the University Palace there are the busts of Mazzini, Garibaldi, Mameli and Bixio that, together with Genoese professors like Cesare Cabella and Cesare Parodi, bravely took part in the movements of the Risorgimento. The University of Genoa has a leading role in the current reform of the university system, with a new Statute came into effect on 29th December 2011.

IDENTITY

The University of Genoa presents about 300 courses – including post-lauream courses – organized according to the aspirations and aptitudes of the young, considering the importance of high qualification and with a dimension based on the requirements of the labour market at an European and - in many cases - global level. The University of Genoa is the University of Liguria as it is present on the entire regional territory with educational centres also in Savona, Imperia and La Spezia.

The University offers the students a solid cultural and scientific education and gives them many instruments to face the professional future. It offers real possibilities of integration between theory and practice, also through stages with institutions and companies and training periods abroad. There are many different forms of collaboration and cooperation with foreign Universities and Institutions that allow a high mobility of professors and students from and towards foreign countries. At the moment, with more than 3,000 foreign students, the University went over the 8% mark of the total amount of registered students, establishing even more - and unlike the national data - its position as a point of attraction for the students that choose Italy for their University studies. The University of Genoa gives great importance to the quality of teaching and research, being this one a fundamental element for assuring the knowledge development that is the base of real innovation and competitiveness.

f

Research allows to reach results of acknowledged prestige also at an international level and to develop excellences. Regarding to teaching, the relational pattern between students and professors enhances the reciprocity of the relationships and an open and flexible learning setting, employing the new computer tools: e-learning platforms, accessibility for disabled to the University site, 7 Academy Points (classrooms for distance learning distributed on the regional territory).

In collaboration with the Regional Agency for Education Services and Job (Agenzia Regionale per i Servizi Educativi e per il Lavoro - ARSEL) and the Region of Liguria, the University of Genoa applied itself to improve the welcome of non-resident students and their life conditions, through significant investments for scholarships and accommodations in a city that is more and more dynamic and full of cultural challenges.

EMARO+ is an integrated Masters course conducted by: Ecole Centrale de Nantes (France), Warsaw University of Technology (Poland), the University of Genoa (Italy), and Jaume I University (Spain). It has been designed and accepted in the framework of the European Union ERASMUS-MUNDUS programme (ERASMUS+ H2020). It has 7 associated partners: two Asian Institutions  (KEIO University - Japan, SJTU - China) and five industrial partners (IRT Jules Verne - France, Airbus Group Innovations - France), BA Systemes - France, Robotnik - Spain, and SIIT - Italy). The programme of study lasts two academic years (120 ECTS) split into four equally loaded semesters. The student has to spend the first two semesters in one European institution and the second two semesters in another European institution. Another mobility during the fourth semester to an Asian partner or to an industrial partner is possible. The language of instruction is English, but local language and culture courses of the hosting countries are included in the programme of study. The aim of the first two semesters is to provide the students with a solid interdisciplinary background across the main areas of robotics (Cognition, Action, Perception). During the third semester, depending on the host institution, the student will deal with one or more of the following sectors: industrial robot systems, service robots (domestic, health, rehabilitation, leisure), intelligent vehicules and security robots. The fourth semester is dedicated to the Masters Thesis. The student carries out his/her research work under the joint supervision of two advisors from two different consortium institutions. Students that graduate from the EMARO masters course obtain two masters degrees from the European institutions where they studied. The obtained degrees are officially recognised and give full access to PhD study programmes. 
The Consortium delivers a Diploma supplement describing the nature, level, context, content and status of the studies that were pursued and successfully completed by the student. The Masters is designed to promote a high-quality educational offer in the area of advanced and intelligent robotics. After graduation the students will have mastered the different areas of robotics (Mathematical modeling, Control Engineering, Computer Engineering, Mechanical design) in order to be able to deal with Robotics systems as a whole rather than just to concentrate on one particular area. Although the EMARO+ programme is applied primarily within the context of robotic systems, the concepts covered can be applied to a much wider range of other engineering and economical systems. The career prospects for EMARO+ graduates are therefore excellent. They can be employed in many industrial and economical companies, as the courses are relevant to today’s high technology society.
