Course summary

Learn to design and implement robotic products and systems that have the potential to revolutionise our everyday lives and working practices.You will study the theoretical principles behind robotics and automation and, thanks to its strong practical focus, you will also have opportunities to put these principles into practice. Working with basic robots to begin with, you will spend time in the lab learning simple programming and systems and developing the knowledge to understand the more complex and sophisticated systems used in industry.You will get to build your own robots in two separate engineering design projects during the first and second years of your course, giving you the chance to apply your knowledge and refine your skills in the designing, building and testing of electronic and electrical systems. During the Electrical & Electronic Principles modules, you will focus on theory and spend time in the lab building circuits to establish how they work.Industry visits and case studies will develop your understanding of how robotics and automation work in the real world, from their application in the production of food and drinks, to the development of autonomous vehicles. You will also have the option to take a sandwich year, which will provide a great opportunity to put your learning into action in the workplace. **AUTOMATION AND EMBEDDED SYSTEMS LABORATORIES**The laboratories provide equipment to support electrical and electronic engineering and include industry proven technologies such as Siemens Programmable Logic controllers, NI ELVIS and myRIO systems.**FARNELL ELEMENT14 LABORATORY**You will work on robotics projects in the electronics laboratory at Farnell element14 (part of Premier Farnell). Here you will be able to build your core skills in processes such as soldering and circuit board assembly, and your project-based activities will include the testing of circuits and sections of boards.
