Entry requirements

Students need to have a minimum of a lower second class honours degree (2.1) in a technical subject such as robotics, computing, engineering (mechanical / electrical/ electronic), physics or mathematics; Students with advanced standing who can evidence an academic ability to a similar level may also be considered. Students will also be asked to provide evidence of: a sound understanding of A level mathematics (linear algebra, calculus, differential equations), basic knowledge of computer hardware and operating systems, basic competency in a programming language such as Python, C, C++, Java or similar. Basic skills in electrical engineering would be a plus.
