Course summary

**Robots and Artificial Intelligence are changing the world around us, transforming how we live and work.**Amazon’s automated warehouses are revolutionising the way businesses operate. Drones deliver medicines to remote regions of the world. Robots are being used instead of humans in hazardous or inaccessible areas.Mechatronics and robotics brings together three disciplines and applies them to the design and manufacture of intelligent systems. The course is an exciting combination of approximately one third computer science, one third engineering and one third mechatronics and robotics modules.These courses place great emphasis on the design, implementation and evaluation of automated and robotic systems. Topics you’ll cover include programming and algorithmic thinking, Artificial Intelligence and computer vision. You’ll do lots of problem-based learning and, of course, build your own robots.Our teaching is linked to our research in simulation, visualisation, dependable systems, robotics, 3D printing and mobile and distributed computing, meaning you’ll be at the forefront of developments in this rapidly growing field.We provide a range of specialist facilities including a specialist robotics lab. Here you’ll get hands-on with humanoid Baxter and Nao robots and our 3D printed robot MARC (Multi-actuated Robotic Companion) created by our Head of Department Professor John Murray. And you’ll be able to digitally fabricate 3D models, prototypes and parts for your robotic systems in our FabLab.In addition to our robotics hardware, we also have motion capture environments for drones and VR/AR and MR facilities in the Hull Immersive Visualisation Environment (HIVE).The foundation year is ideal to boost your skills and knowledge if you don't quite meet our academic entry requirements.**Official Team GB partners**Did you know that the University of Hull is the official University Partner of Team GB?
