Course Summary

MRes Robotics

Launch yourself into the robotics research environment and develop the skills and confidence to conduct your own in-depth research project. Gain current, advanced theoretical and practical knowledge from our world-leading experts in intelligent and interactive robotics. You’ll graduate ready for a future in the fast-moving world of personal and service robotics and with the skills to further your research to PhD level.

Key features

  • Immerse yourself in an individual research project and learn how to communicate your motivation, methodology, and conclusions through a formal dissertation and summary paper.
  • Get up-to-date with the latest developments in artificial life and intelligence, adaptive behaviour, information visualisation, neural computation, and dynamic systems, as well as remote access and monitoring systems. Our seminars series with speakers from industry and academia gives you the opportunity to keep ahead in this fast-moving field.
  • Give yourself the edge. Our programme distinguishes itself from other robotics masters programmes, in the UK and abroad, by ensuring a deeper theoretical and practical knowledge of interactive and intelligent robotics.
  • Expand your skills with first-class facilities including 3D rapid prototyping systems, in-house PCB design and assembly tools, and our award winning Plymouth Humanoid robots.
  • Get expert training from members of the Autonomous Marine Systems Research Group and the Centre for Robotics and Neural Systems (CRNS).
  • Benefit by combining disciplines that are traditionally taught separately. You’ll graduate ready with the expertise and joined-up knowledge to design and develop fully integrated mechanical, electronic, control and computing systems.
  • Become a professional in your field – this programme is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).
  • The taught elements of this programme are also delivered to students on Year 1 of the MSc Robotics Technology programme.
  • Postgraduate scholarships for international students: you can apply for a postgraduate scholarship from the UK government to cover things like course fees and the cost of living when you study in the UK.
