Be part of the robotics revolution - make robots come 'alive' and develop their ability to think and make decisions that assist human activity.

This integrated master’s is studied over four years and combines undergraduate and postgraduate study in one course.

As part of your course, you’ll:

  • Work hands-on with robotics
  • Learn how to program hardware and software for real-life case studies, such as a discovery robot that will navigate and interact with its environment through a range of sensors, including infra-red, sonar, cameras and GPS
  • Gain problem-solving skills that are crucial to engineering

As well as a year in industry, you’ll have the opportunity to make site visits and attend industry conferences. This will help build your network of contacts and give you an insight into the latest advancements in robotics engineering.

Specialist facilities

Our dedicated onsite engineering and automation labs house industry-standard hardware and software for you to use, such as Lab View, Siemens STEP 7 and ELVIS boards.
