Doctoral programme in Automatic Control, Robotics and Computer Vision (ARV) emerges in 2006 from the fusion of the Doctoral programme in Advanced Automation and Robotics of the Institute of Industrial and Control Engineering (IOC) and of the Doctoral programme in Control, Vision and Robotics of the Automatic Control Department (ESAII), both with Quality Mention of the Spanish Ministry of Education (MEC). The fusion is fruit of an increasing thematic affinity and convergence between both programmes, and is carried out taking advantage of the opportunity to adapt the programme to the new syllabus of the Official Postgraduate Programmes in the framework of the European Higher Education Area. From the first year, the ARV Doctoral programme achieved the Quality Mention by the Spanish Ministry of Education. The ARV Doctoral programme has also achieved the Excellence Mention by the Spanish Ministery of Education, with code MEE2011-0453. This mention, which is valid from academic year 2011-2012 until 2013-2014, substitutes previous Quality Mention, which the programme had from academic year  2007-2008 until 2010-2011.

This Doctoral programme provides a frame for the production of doctoral theses in the fields of Automation, Robotics and Vision under the supervision of the academic and research staff which belong to it, having at its disposal the research infrastructures from both the Units and the Research Groups involved.
