Course summary

Get hands-on experience of how of robots and intelligent systems are designed and built, and how they are applied across society. Real-life robots might be a bit different from the ones on the screen, but they’re completely changing sectors such as manufacturing, healthcare, transport, agriculture and energy. Employers globally need people like you to become engineers to build the technology of the future. Our undergraduate robotics engineering course was one of the first in the UK to provide core robotics education. It combines expertise in mechanical, electronic and computer systems to show you what’s possible. Learn from world-leading experts and use our robotics and artificial intelligence research facilities. Robotics lab, human-machine interaction arena, rapid prototyping facilities, MakerSpace, computer vision and electronics laboratories – you’ll find everything you could ever want and need here. Surrounded by experts You’ll have opportunities to learn robot design and control, computer programming, software engineering, embedded systems and artificial intelligence – the expertise that’s in high demand by leading employers. If you choose the MEng option, you’ll also explore specialised areas such as computer vision, machine learning and real-time control. Engineers, computer scientists, clinical experts, psychologists and others are all carrying out research at the Centre for Advanced Robotics. Together they’re investigating everything from autonomous systems and cognition to human-robot interaction and medical robotics. With opportunities to get involved with research, industrial projects and internships, you’ll get all the experience you need to stand out. Decide how you want to make an impact and we’ll help you get there.
