Course content

Become an expert in the fast-evolving world of Robotics, and equip yourself for a job in the industry of the future.

Robots and autonomous systems are adopted into our daily lives and have important roles in a range of modern engineering disciplines including computer science, mechanical engineering, electrical and electronic engineering. Robotics and autonomous systems engineering is a multidisciplinary scientific and technological field applying complex systems (robots) to perform tasks done traditionally by human beings.

The importance of robots and autonomous systems lies in their strong economic contribution across diverse global market sectors. This exciting Masters course offers students the opportunity to study the most exciting aspects of Internet of Things, mechanical design, electronics and communication and apply them to the design and manufacture of smart autonomous systems. The programme comprises a mix of core principles of this emerging field of autonomous systems. It provides a broad coverage of all of the major disciplines in automation, process industry and network analysis.
