The University and Ecole Supérieure des Technologies Industrielles Avancées (ESTIA) have maintained a partnership since 1987 when Salford was chosen as the site of the UK’s National Advanced Robotics Research Centre. Today, the partnership has developed on the basis of a collaborative approach to both teaching and research; offering a unique opportunity for postgraduate students with an interest in engineering to learn from experts at two leading institutions in the areas of robotics, automation and systems engineering.

The partnership is open to all ESTIA students who are interested in pursuing either MSc Systems Engineering: Robotics and Automation and MSc Robotics and Embedded Systems following their first Master’s at ESTIA (Master’s 1).

To find out more about the partnership, and how to apply for one of the split-site courses on offer, please contact Amélie Hacala, Admissions Officer via email:
