Course summary

Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to enter directly onto their chosen Honours degree programme. Specialist robotics engineers are in demand - this course will help you develop skills in both electronic and mechanical engineering and prepare you for a truly fascinating, rewarding career. Drawing on knowledge from all the necessary strands of engineering, you’ll develop robotic and mechatronic systems for a range of applications, including modern manufacturing, aerospace and the nuclear industry. While you’ll graduate with a wide skills base, emphasis is placed on complex systems for tele-operated, semi-autonomous and autonomous robots, and incorporates aspects of sensing, control theory, computational intelligence and computing. As well as hands-on technical skills, you’ll develop the critical decision-making, creative thinking and problem solving skills you’ll need to succeed.There are opportunities for paid, real-world industrial experience working on ERDF funded commercial projects connected to local industry in the North West, and Summer Undergraduate Internships, working on actual research projects - we recently placed a student with NASA. An optional industrial placement year is available, aimed at providing you with relevant and broadening industrial experience to consolidate your learning at Level 1 and Level 2, inform your academic studies at Level 3 and enhance your subsequent early career development. Successful completion of the industrial placement module is recognised by the endorsement “with industrial placement” in the award title.Employability is central to our degree provision and you will be taught the basic aspects of electronic engineering to ensure you have the skills required to succeed in industry. Course delivery allows for you to select specialist topics depending on module choices, including computer vision, signal & image processing, real-time systems, neural networks, machine intelligence and communications. This ensures your studies are shaped to suit your career aspirations.
