Duration of the programme and number of hours

The programme lasts for 4 years (8 semesters). The total number of course hours is 2757 per person including:

  • 987 hours of lectures for all students in the same year
  • 210 hours of general classes (for groups of 32)
  • 1184 hours of laboratories (for groups of 16)
  • 10 hours of simulator classes (for groups of 16)
  • 366 hours of project related classes (for groups of 8)
In addition, students have 22 weeks of work experience in companies whose activities include maintenance work, design and implementation, as well as operation of automatic control systems, as well as programming and use of robots and programmable machines. Therefore, when you study automation and robotics, in addition to an engineering degree, you get the practical experience and contacts you need to function later in the labor market. The maritime character of the University and support for majors related to maritime economy allows for a well-paid job in companies specializing in maritime transport or renewable energy.


The program of studies is designed to provide you with preparation for professional work in the field of broadly understood automation, robotics and related fields by using the knowledge acquired during the studies. During your studies, you will develop the ability to think abstractly and solve basic engineering problems related to the operation of automation and robotics equipment and systems. Studying with us will allow you to gain basic knowledge in the design, construction, operation and diagnostics of automatic control systems and robotic systems using IT tools. It is certain that you will be well prepared for employment in industrial plants related to broadly understood electrical engineering and related fields.
