The SRI curriculum is organized around five considerations:

  1. A training tuned towards private companies (communication, marketing, quality, innovation, etc.), and international cooperation (two foreign languages are thought, internships, semester exchange for study).
  2. A generalist scientific training based on fundamental Teaching Units (tools for engineering, software, project management, etc.) and SRI fundamentals TU (automation and control systems, artificial intelligence, etc). They are taught during semesters S5, S6, and S7.
  3. A technical training in the development of functional modalities perception-decision-action devoted to robotics and/or interactive systems. The corresponding TU devoted to “robotics” and “multimodal interaction” (speech&image processing, man-machine interface) are planned in the 2nd year. To go deeper, two TU “advanced robotics” and “ambient interactive systems” (sensor networks and ambient actuators and robots) are scheduled in the 3rd year.
  4. A training through projects spread over the 3 years of the curriculum, achieved individually or in-group. The multidisciplinary integration skill is gradually acquired through robotic and/or interactive systems with an increasing complexity. This includes the “large scale project”, running through the S9 and S10 semesters, aiming to meet the specifications of an industrial customer in order to validate all managements and scientific project phases, but also to develop their abilities in team working.
  5. A professional training and in partnership with the private sector in order to prepare students to their future professional life, including two mandatory internships (at the end of the 2nd and the 3rd year).
