Course Summary

The Robotics MSc is a multi-disciplinary course that allows you to explore the integration of mechanical devices, sensors, electronics and ‘intelligent’ computer-based controllers while completing an individual research project. This course is suitable for graduates in engineering or a related scientific background who wish to gain a valuable grounding for careers in research or industry.

It allows you to gain specialist knowledge relating to robotics and automation applications by examining the integration of mechanical devices, sensors, electronics and ‘intelligent’ computer-based controllers. You will also explore the latest developments in robotics while completing research and development work for your individual research project. You will complete the course in one year, studying September to September and taking a combination of required and optional modules totalling 180 credits, including 60 credits that will come from an individual project. You will study Robotic Systems, Computer Vision, Sensors and Actuators, Real-time Systems and Control. There are also opportunities to explore a broad range of optional modules allowing you the freedom to develop your study pathway to reflect your interests.

Our graduates have continued on to have very successful careers in industry and research, working areas such as manufacturing, automotive and aerospace. Recent employers include Cummins Inc and Transport Alstom.
