Robot: Walk That Line!

General description

It has always been a dream of mankind to create life in our own image. To create machines to do harsh and heavy work for us. To build robots. Do you want to learn how? Then this course will be the right choice for you! This course is for every skill level - from the totally unexperienced student to the highly competent skynet hacker!

But you're not only going to explore the field of robotics, you are also going to have a lot of crazy parties, an adventurous weekend trip to a robotic sailing boat, a mugful of the local culture of wine, waltz, beer and of course fun fun fun! We dare you to not just walk but also cross your own lines!

So don't be shy and apply ;-)
