Course summary

Our course provides a comprehensive coverage of contemporary intelligent systems, with robots serving as a major example of the technology. Thanks to the leading research being undertaken in our School, you will gain a solid understanding of the foundations of this technology, exploring areas including:

  • The principles by which sensed data are converted into useful information
  • The practical aspects of developing intelligent and robotic systems
  • Biologically inspired robots
  • Biometrics
  • Computational intelligence

Robotics requires a well-developed knowledge of areas ranging from computer science and artificial intelligence, to engineering and neuroscience, to produce hardware which can sense and manipulate the real world. This field has allowed us to develop everything from satellites and submarines to race cars and robots.

Our MSc Intelligent Systems and Robotics is delivered by our team of internationally recognised researchers, with expertise spanning the entire range of intelligent systems and experience of developing robots intended for land, under water and in the air.

Research carried out by our team has resulted in appearance in the Robot Soccer World Cup final, an autonomous robot fish in the London Aquarium, and a self-programming computer vision system.
