Course content

Robots and autonomous systems are being introduced in virtually every industry. As new markets turn to robotics for the next step in their evolution, the need for qualified robotic engineers has never been greater.

Our Masters in Robotics blends practice with theory to equip you with the skills, knowledge and experience you’ll need for a career in robotics.

Robotics research and the development of intelligent systems continue to be one of the key priorities set by both industry and the government. Significant growth is predicted in many robotics sectors. Our programme will provide you with both solid understanding of the fundamental theoretical principles of robotics and practical hands-on skills achieved through working directly with state-of-the-art equipment.

You’ll learn to program different types of robots, from manipulators to mobile robots to social robots, using industry standard hardware and software, such as Python and ROS. These skills and competences will prepare you for a career as a robotic engineer or academic researcher in the field.

The programme includes significant time developing practical projects, working under the supervision of our expert teaching staff, who are actively involved in industrial and academic activities in robotics and AI. You’ll also benefit from our close links to leading industry organisations, and direct access to new developments related to current research projects in which our staff are involved.
