The last 20 years have seen a phenomenal growth in the development and application of computer and machine vision technology. With increasingly complex applications across diverse areas, including manufacturing, security and medicine, there is a growing need for professionals who can evaluate, design and implement technically appropriate and economically viable automation systems for enhancing quality and productivity.
The MSc in Automation and Computer Vision at UWE Bristol is one of the very few postgraduate courses that brings together both of these disciplines into one industry-focused, research-informed Masters.
The course provides a unique combination of these two overlapping disciplines, with a strong emphasis on robotics hardware for solving 'real-world' problems. You will develop both the technical knowledge and the business skills needed to introduce advanced automation and machine vision techniques in the workplace.
You will also benefit from the University's close links with industry, with guest lectures on many modules and the chance to work on real-life automation and computer vision projects.
Alongside the strong industry-focus of the course, you will have the opportunity to be part of, and work on, projects in the world-leading Bristol Robotics Laboratory, which brings together influential researchers in service robotics, autonomous systems and bio-engineering.
For those already working, we offer this course as a work-based learning course, as well as a standard full or part-time Masters. Employees of relevant industries can attend part of the course to supplement their existing skills or to be assessed on their current skills and knowledge of these highly topical subject areas.

We hold a number of University-wide open evenings as well as a number of subject specific events throughout the year for anyone considering postgraduate and professional study. Visit http://www1.uwe.ac.uk/whatson/opendays/postgraduateopendays.aspx
