Course summary

Robots are on the rise. They're present in many areas of everyday life including autonomous transportation, farm machinery, medical and environmental applications and logistics.

Developing robots that are capable of adapting and learning from experience is a significant driver in the robotics industry and is at the cutting edge of research development. This course will provide you with the tools and skills necessary to become a leader in these expanding areas.

We'll prepare you for employment in robotic and autonomous systems, related industries, and equip you to pursue further research into intelligent robotics.

Course content

We place a strong focus on practical implementation, both in hardware and simulation. Your course will culminate in a large research project focussed on collective robotic systems, ranging from ground-based units to flying robots and new mechanisms at variable scales for manufacturing. You will work in a state of the art, dedicated robotics laboratory.

Through lectures and hands-on experience, you'll learn about the development of mechanisms, control systems, algorithms that can learn and adapt, and swarm systems (multiple robots working together). You'll get to experience the liveliness of this exciting field first hand.

We take care to ensure our courses are relevant to your future career. Our Professional Development Framework, designed in consultation with expert external advisors, will help to prepare you for industry, research or further study.
