Course summary

Join this advanced two-year course which provides you with taught modules in the first year followed by a practical or research project in the second year.


Cyber physical systems integrate computation with physical objects and processes. Examples of cyber physical systems are:

  • 'smart' devices in the home such as a smart meter or fridge
  • voice assistant devices
  • driverless vehicles
  • medical monitoring equipment
  • wearable devices
  • robotic assistants

Our course is designed for students with a background in computer science or a related field with analytical skills. You'll learn the principles of integrated system design and computational and cyber physical systems methods and tools.

The key topics covered will include:

  • artificial intelligence
  • robotics
  • cyber security
  • modelling and simulation
  • ethical design
  • interactive systems

The benefit of a two-years masters is that you can build the foundation of your knowledge in year one then use your skills for a year-long practical or research project.


The fourth industrial revolution is coming. Artificial intelligence, machine learning and cyber physical systems are all changing how we live and work.

With the skills gained from this degree, you could be developing the technology of the future. Careers could be in:

  • cyber security
  • financial technology (fintech)
  • networked systems
  • robotics and autonomous systems
  • smart product and service design and development
  • artificial intelligence engineering

You may choose to continue your research in this area with a PhD.
