Robotics is on the cusp of an exciting new era as robots become more reactive, intelligent and human-like, as well as finding applications in a range of industries including consumer and healthcare robotics. We are in the midst of an increase in the pace of technological change and the changes in the coming decade will be a magnitude of order greater than anything that has gone before. A paradigm shift is about to take place that will forever change society; our ability to manufacture novel robots and new artificial intelligence techniques will both change the way we interact with technology and will allow technology to interact with us and our world in a far more nuanced way. This new MSc Robotics Engineering reflects recent software and hardware technological advances and exposes students to new, much sought-after skills and up-to-date areas of research. Recent technological advances are incorporated into the course by developing novel cross disciplinary approaches and subject areas such as Embedded Systems, Artificial Intelligence and Virtual Reality.
Robotics Engineering covers a wide range of specific topics such as: Robotics, Embedded Systems, Robots for special applications, Sensors, Actuators and Robot Navigation.
Assessment is through a mixture of coursework and examination. The ethos within the Department is to foster enthusiasm for Robotics and so assessment is largely through project work, giving you the opportunity to explore the subject area and focus on those specific topics that capture your interest. The project entails research and innovation as well as practical industrial applications of the ideas developed during the programme of study.
Normally a First Class or Upper Second Class Honours Degree in Computer Science, Computing, Science, or engineering-based discipline.
