Future Member

Fixed positions

We are hiring!

We currently looking for two new colleagues:

– An aeronautics researcher for the new MarLand project. Simply put, the job will consist of developing algorithms to make a drone land on a marine vessel autonomously. Check it out here!

– An EOD robotics engineer for the new AIDED project. The task of this researcher will be to integrate new Explosive Ordnance Detecting sensors (Ground Penetrating Radar, Electromagnetic Induction Array, Spectrometer) on an existing unmanned ground vehicle and pursue field tests with the Belgian demining team in order to validate the system performance. Check it out here!

We’d be very happy to have you in our team. Be sure to send us an application if your profile matches one of these vacancies.

Final term projects for Masters in Engineering

The Royal Military Academy is subscribed in the ERASMUS programme. As a result, the Robotics & Autonomous Systems unit attracts national and international master thesis students that want to pair a thorough theoretical development to a practical implementation on one of our robotic systems.

We always prefer to include master thesis students in our financed research projects, as this gives the students the greatest potential to work inside a real research team and to have the financial means to have access to equipment. Therefore, please take a look at our running research projects and let us know if your are interested in contributing.

PhD. studies

The Royal Military Academy is an accredited university and can deliver PhD. degrees. However, in order to maximize the collaboration, we prefer to work in collaboration with universities. 

As a military university, our role is often to validate in real-life conditions the theoretical developments performed within the PhD. study. As a unit of Belgian Defence, this often entails field-testing robotic systems (land / air / marine) in tough conditions.

Please have a look at our active research activities and our running projects and let us know if you see a potential for collaboration.
