Master’s in Informatics and Automation: very applied research

The Master’s in Informatics and Automation of the UdG is designed to train researchers in the fields of computing and automation. Seven research groups from the Polytechnic University of Girona guarantee the quality of the course.

The Master’s in Informatics and Automation of the UdG (MIA) is the result of the distillation of the expertise of the seven research groups that compose the Institute of Informatics and Applications of the University of Girona (IIia). Its main function is to provide them with students who want to become doctors so that they consolidate the various research areas in which they work. These areas belong to the fields of algorithmics and programming, communications, adaptive systems, control, artificial intelligence, monitoring and diagnosis, robotics, computer vision, visualization, virtual reality and graphical interaction. All of them are part of a variety of fields that take an amplitude that is directly proportional to the novelty of the field of study in which they specialize: they are all spearheads in their relevant field.

Seven cutting-edge groups

The seven groups that make up the IIiA, Agents Research Labs (ARLAB), Broadband Communications Distributed Systems (BCDS), Control Engineering and Intelligent Systems, Modelling, Identificaction and Control System (MiceLab), Graphic and Imaging Laboratory, VICOROB (Computer Vision and Robotics) and VIRVIG (Visualization, Virtual Reality and Graphic Interaction), all of them based at the Polytechnic University of Girona and with laboratories in its Science and Technology Park, are developing an intense research and at the same time, they are working on projects for public institutions and private companies of the sectors to which they are related. The students taking the master’s course take a ticket on this journey of research which is to finish, in most cases, with the writing of a dissertation that will satisfy both the needs of the IIiA research groups and those of the new technologies industry.

“Since it just has this unique feature of research, students who enroll come with very clear ideas,” admits Ramon Fabregat, coordinator of the master’s and lecturer in the Department of Computer Architecture and Technology. Fabregat explains that most students of the master’s selct their academic track according to the field of work they chose for their bachelor’s degree final project. Students who enroll for this course and who come from outside the UdG do so through the contacts of the research groups with other universities, both in Spain and abroad, with a special relevance to Latin American countries like Mexico and Colombia since, “for South American students, it is very appealing to take a master’s degree in technology in Europe.”

Advanced training with applications

Although it is a research master’s and it does not have a practicum in its teaching plan, students do not stay away from the reality of the companies in the sector since, in their contribution with the research groups through the master’s final project, they work in the projects of the groups which are aimed at companies, and as a result they can always see the applicability of their effort.

The course promoters are confident that once the students have completed their track, they will have achieved advanced and cutting-edge training in issues that will help them solve technological and research problems and they will be ready to join a research team. Perhaps for this reason, once they have completed the course, many students find jobs in a wide spectrum of activities in the fields of computer science and automation, but never neglect their valuable commitment with research.
