Course summary

Autonomous and robotic systems are ever growing around us; from industrial robotic arms in production chains, to robot vacuum cleaners, lawn mowers, self-driving cars and drones to space robotics or any other mechatronic or autonomous system.There is a strong strategic direction for global industry in Robotics and Automated Systems (RAS) as evidenced by a host of national and international strategy documents and networks. Companies are developing robotic and autonomous solutions and products, but now need graduate engineers with the expertise to define the technology.The aim of this new course is to provide core skills and knowledge in robotics, mechatronics and control disciplines. The course will enable students to understand the fundamental processes and techniques in autonomous systems, blending subject such as, electronics, control, manufacturing principles, and mechanics. It combines theoretical and practical engineering principles, with application to real industrial problems.**What's the difference between MEng and BEng?**The structure of the first two years are common between the BEng and MEng and provide you with engineering and electrical science core skills, combined with control system design and mechanical engineering for robotics. The application of engineering and electrical science shared with the solution of industrial problems is a strong theme throughout the courses.The MEng structure is distinct from the BEng course in the third and fourth academic years, providing enhanced opportunities to study your chosen specialist subjects in depth. In addition, MEng students follow extra modules in business management and application of management theory.Students studying on the BEng course may have opportunity to change to the MEng course if their performance in the first and second year is sufficiently strong.
