The Doctoral Degree in Automatic Control, Robotics and Computer Vision (ARV)
is part of the postgraduate courses offered by the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya BarcelonaTech (UPC). The ARV programme has been adapted to the European Higher Education Area(EHEA). From the origin of the ARV programme, it has always obtained the Quality Mention of the Spanish Ministry of Education, and the Excellence Mention when candidates for these awards were called. As the name suggests, the ARV programme provides a frame for the production of doctoral theses in the fields of Automatic Control, Robotics and Computer Vision. These areas are fundamental in traditional industrial environments as well as in many current service applications. The research works are done under the supervision of the faculty and research staff of the programme, having at their disposal the research infrastructures from the units involved.
