Course content

Learn the essential skills and techniques needed to develop autonomous systems, embedded artificial intelligence and robotics.

Our course will help you take your career forward in an innovative and developing area of engineering. It balances advanced theory with technical skills so that you can learn to develop complete operational systems. Our course is suited to you if you have a background in electronic and electrical engineering, computer science or a related discipline.

During the course, you will gain a comprehensive understanding of how to research, design and develop systems. You’ll explore robotics engineering and software, autonomous systems technologies, processes and products throughout the industry value chain. Other areas you'll cover include computational intelligence, machine learning and sensors.

Your studies will focus on tackling engineering challenges using whole-systems approaches. We’ll give you the tools to analyse and evaluate the impact of the resources, processes and products you choose in developing systems. You’ll consider stakeholder needs and factors such as technical, economic, environmental and social.

Our focus on practical learning makes sure you have the skills to design and build robotic platforms and autonomous systems. And it means you'll work on individual and group projects using the same systems platforms as those used in industry.

You’ll learn from academics in our Departments of Computer Science, Electronic & Electrical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering. Their international collaborations and research expertise feed into your learning experience.

You’ll graduate with the skills to innovate and deliver resource-efficient practices and solutions for robotic and autonomous systems. Your knowledge will prepare you for a career in the engineering sector or for further postgraduate study and research.
