Course content

MSc Research by Robotics is a fast-developing discipline that combines long-established areas of electronic and mechanical engineering with the latest innovations in computing and life sciences. It's also behind a revolution in industry. Robotic devices now play a part in most sectors, particularly in defence and manufacturing, with emerging applications in personal care, medical intervention and entertainment.

A bright future for you and robotics

The MRes Robotics course helps you to apply your creativity and knowledge to design and develop intelligent robots. It will provide you with the critical insight and practical skills to do exactly that, and is also fantastic preparation for a PhD in Robotics.

You'll already have a solid background in design tools, simulation techniques, software development, research methods, and the role of design in a business context. You'll also be familiar with computer-based systems for intelligent product design, development and optimisation.

You will apply your existing knowledge, understanding and creativity towards the context of your project, alongside significant independent study and using appropriate software. The course is designed to guide you towards new ways of working along with critical thinking, analysis, evaluation and problem solving skills.

UWE Bristol's research centres, including the internationally renowned Bristol Robotics Laboratory (BRL) we created in partnership with the University of Bristol, provide the practical research training and supervision.

UWE Bristol is highly regarded nationally and internationally for its teaching and research covering robotics, artificial intelligence and embedded systems.
