M.Sc. Courses at TU Delft

The MAVLab provides two Master of Science courses focuses on autonomous flight of unmanned air vehicles.

(AE4317) Autonomous Flight of Micro Air Vehicles

This course covers the challenges and existing state-of-the-art methods for enabling autonomous flight of Micro Air Vehicles (MAVs), ranging from 20-gram flapping wings to 1 kg quad rotors. The emphasis is on computationally efficient, bio-inspired approaches to MAV autonomous flight. The theoretical knowledge will be applied by the students in the practical assignment, in which student groups program quad rotors in order to avoid obstacles in TU Delft’s Cyberzoo.

(AE4350) Bio-Inspired Intelligence and Learning for Autonomous Applications

This course covers the following subjects:

  • Introduction Bio-inspired Intelligence
  • Introduction to Artificial Neural Networks
  • Introduction to Reinforcement Learning
  • Reinforcement Learning for Aerospace Control
  • Evolutionary robotics
  • Self-supervised learning

M.Sc. Thesis at TU Delft

The MAVLab guides Master students from several faculties during their Master thesis. Please get in contact with us if you would like to pursue a thesis project with us.

B.Sc. Thesis Assignments at TU Delft

Every year the MAVLab also guides one or more 3rd year DSE Projects (Design and Synthesis Exercises). Students who join this course have the opportunity of being assigned to such projects.
