Course summary

Studying Robotics and Smart Technologies enables you to experience an expert knowledge of the multi-discipline areas of robotics, autonomous vehicles, artificial intelligence, smart cities and ‘internet of things’ for network-enabled products.

This course offers a full spectrum of learning and current research with our experienced staff. Face-to-face teaching and use of our specialised laboratories will ensure you have the latest knowledge in this dynamic field.

You’ll get a practical understanding of the use of robotics both inside and outside of the industry, as well as embedded systems, the use of network-enabled devices in the home, autonomous vehicles (both automotive and aeronautical), and the use of artificial intelligence.

With this Masters course, you’ll undertake a major project where you can specialise in an area of interest to support your work goals. The course has been designed with employability in mind to ensure graduates meet the demands of a growing sector.

On successful completion of study, we will issue the following award: MSc Robotics and Smart Technologies

Part-time study

This course is offered on a part-time basis over three years. You’ll take two modules each semester in Year 1 and 2 and complete the project in Year 3.

Careers

After completing the Robotics and Smart Technologies MSc, you’ll be equipped to work in the following roles:

  • Research and development
  • Engineering consultancy
  • Project management
  • Teaching

Eager for more knowledge? Upon completion, you’ll be ideally placed for further academic study at PhD level.

Teaching

We know that everyone learns differently. So not only do we use traditional ways of teaching like lectures and tutorials, we also use problem-based learning to help you apply your skills.

For this course, you'll:

  • Work with others on group work
  • Work in specialist laboratories
  • Be expected to study independently

Our teaching is supported through our Virtual Learning Environment called Blackboard. This means you can access a range of materials to support your lectures wherever you are.

We’ll also assign you a supervisor to support you throughout your research project.

Assessment

There are two types of assessments: practice (also called formative) or formal (also called summative).

Practice assessments do not count towards your final mark. These are your chance to test your understanding – and learn how to improve for the real thing.

You’ll have formal assessments at the end of each module. These could include essays, exams, or portfolios.
