Course summary

Overview

Robotic and autonomous systems are now used in areas such as autonomous vehicle guidance, healthcare, remote surgery, industrial manufacturing and domestic assistance. This multi-disciplined BEng Robotics degree brings together electronics, computer software, and mechanics. In the first three years, you’ll be given a background in all three disciplines, along with the opportunity to build integrated systems. In the final two years, you can either continue with a broad-based curriculum, or specialise in particular aspects of contemporary robotics.

Graduate destinations

Our robotics graduates are highly employable and have progressed to careers in a wide range of industries, working for organisations such as Bosch, Rolls Royce, Leonardo, Mott MacDonald, BP and Texas Instruments.

Accreditation

Teaching and Learning

This programme is offered in a traditional campus-based, cohort model, with a timetable devised to support full-time study. Within the timetable, courses offer traditional lecture-based materials, small group tutorials and a variety of laboratorybased practical's. Students are expected to complete coursework in groups, teams and pairs, as well as individually, and modules offer a range of types of coursework for assessment, from discursive essay-style assignments to software and hardware design and generation. In some modules, team teaching approaches are adopted to provide additional support and variety, and electronic support, predominantly in the form of the VISION system will be available. The level and type of support available via VISION will vary between the courses as is appropriate for the subject matter.

Assessment

The assessment policy for the programme incorporates a range of assessment types. Formative work is scheduled during the courses as part of the coursework, the laboratory and tutorial sessions, to provide feedback on performance. Continuous assessment during courses is in the form of practical work, tutorial work and assignments. Surnmative assessments at the conclusion of the courses contribute to the overall assessment and are used formally to measure achievement in specified learning outcomes. Students are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning and personal development as the course progresses.
