The word ‘robot’ is derived from the Czech word ‘robota’, meaning ‘forced labour’, and fiction writers have always had fun with the idea. In reality, robotics and artificial intelligence presents one of the great intellectual opportunities of the 21st century, transforming how we live, work, travel and learn as we develop artificial systems such as robots for the home and entertainment, robots for assisting those with additional needs, agricultural robots, and systems used in supply chain management. On this degree you will develop specialist expertise, explore the inter-related commercial disciplines used to create artificial systems, and gain fundamental skills in programming, operating systems, software design, applied mathematics and network architecture. On graduation you will be prepared for a future career working with intelligent systems ranging from domestic appliances and search engines to robots exploring Mars.
