The evaluation of the candidatures aims at checking that prospective students have the necessary background to successfully perform in their studies. Below the main elements of the required background are summarized.
General background in scientific disciplines, specific topics (not an exhaustive list!) are:
Mathematics: Vectors and matrices. Eigenvalues and eigenvectors. Matrix operations (determinant, inversion, product, rank of a matrix, etc). Linear subspaces. Range space and null space of a matrix. Solution of linear systems of equations. Numerical integration of differential equations, numerical differentiation of signals.
Physics: Kinematics of a point and of a rigid body in 3D.
Specific background for Computer and System Engineering:
Automatic Control: The concept of dynamical system. Linear transfer functions. The principle of feedback and its benefits (stability and stabilization, rejection of disturbances. robustness to uncertainties).
Computer Science/Engineering: Good programming skills (not only MATLAB!), including object oriented programming and memory mangement. Knowledge of algorithms and data structures, operating systems, computer networks. Development of software applications of medium size. Students with a limited programming experience are invited to do a self-evaluation by examining the material published at: http://www.dis.uniroma1.it/~nardi/Didattica/CAI/robpro-free.html and try the homeworks suggested therein.
Selected students will be invited for a Skype interview for an assessment of their skills and background. The interview will include technical questions related to the aforementioned background.
We also suggest students to take a look at the core courses of the curriculum to have a better understanding of the course requirements: http://corsidilaurea.uniroma1.it/it/corso/2016/intelligenza-artificiale-...
