Robots are increasingly important in our society. They are used in autonomous driving, domestic assistance, health care, industrial manufacturing, search and rescue operations, and hazardous environment exploration and monitoring. This course will equip you with the knowledge and skills to contribute to this rapidly-changing and innovative industry, or to academic research in the area. Our course uniquely combines electrical engineering and computer science, allowing you to gain both theoretical and practical knowledge in areas such as navigation, motion control, sensory perception, autonomous decision making, and machine learning, so that you can develop your own robotic systems. High programming skills are developed on this course, as well as essential knowledge of areas of robotics and artificial intelligence.
Many of our courses offer a choice of optional modules to tailor your learning experience. More information about these can be found on the University of Essex website.
