Course content

As the need and scope for robots and machine intelligence in all aspects of society grows, so does the market for those trained in automation and systems engineering, especially those with a background in Autonomous and Intelligent Systems.

The course covers all major aspects of control and systems engineering with an emphasis on system autonomy and intelligence. Autonomous systems is a fast changing area and has applications in a range of modern engineering disciplines including computer science, mechanical engineering, electrical and electronic engineering and materials science engineering.

You’ll develop an extensive understanding of the field of autonomous and intelligent systems, studying subjects such as artificial intelligence, autonomous agents, evolving intelligent systems and intelligent control theory.

Through lab work, you will get hands-on experience of working with various types of autonomous and intelligent systems, and have the opportunity to build a system from scratch using the specialist labs in the University.

You’ll also work on a research-level dissertation project of your own. You’ll be able to pick an area you are passionate about and develop a solution to a real world problem in the area. You may choose from a range of project ideas, including bionic systems, manufacturing lines, autonomous vehicles or drones. Your project supervisor - an academic dedicated to helping you with your project - will support you.
