Course summary

Robotics and autonomous systems (RAS) are set to shape innovation in the 21st century, underpinning research in a wide range of challenging areas: the ageing population, efficient health care, safer transport, and secure energy. The UCL edge in scientific excellence, industrial collaboration and cross-sector activities make it ideally placed to drive IT robotics and automation education in the UK. The programme provides an overview of robotic and computational tools for robotics and autonomous systems as well as their main computational components: kinetic chains, sensing and awareness, control systems, mapping and navigation. Optional modules in machine learning, human-machine interfaces and computer vision help students grasp fields related to robotics more closely, while the project thesis allows students to focus on a specific research topic in depth.

Careers

Robotics is a growing field encompassing many technologies with applications across different industrial sectors, and spanning manufacturing, security, mining, design, transport, exploration and healthcare. Graduates from our MSc programme will have diverse job opportunities in the international marketplace with their knowledge of robotics and the underpinning computational and analytical fundamentals that are highly valued in the established and emerging economies. Students will also be well placed to undertake PhD studies in robotics and computational research specific to robotics but translational across different analytical disciplines or applied fields that will be influenced by new robotic technologies and capabilities.

Employability

This programme prepares students to enter a robotics-related industry or any other occupation requiring engineering or analytical skills. Graduates with skills to develop new robotics solutions and solve computational challenges in automation are likely to be in demand globally.
