Course summary


Robots and autonomous systems are being introduced in virtually every industry. As new markets turn to robotics for the next step in their evolution, the need for qualified robotic engineers has never been greater.

Our Masters in Robotics blends practice with theory to equip you with the skills, knowledge and experience you’ll need for a career in robotics.

Why study MSc Robotics at Middlesex University?

Robotics research and the development of intelligent systems continue to be one of the key priorities set by both industry and the government. Significant growth is predicted in many robotics sectors. Our programme will provide you with both solid understanding of the fundamental theoretical principles of robotics and practical hands-on skills achieved through working directly with state-of-the-art equipment.

You’ll learn to program different types of robots, from manipulators to mobile robots to social robots, using industry standard hardware and software, such as Python and ROS. These skills and competences will prepare you for a career as a robotic engineer or academic researcher in the field.

The programme includes significant time developing practical projects, working under the supervision of our expert teaching staff, who are actively involved in industrial and academic activities in robotics and AI. You’ll also benefit from our close links to leading industry organisations, and direct access to new developments related to current research projects in which our staff are involved.

Course content

What will you study on the MSc Robotics?

You will use a variety of industry standard and domestic robots, providing you with a breadth of experience using technologies such as industrial manipulators, multiple-arm collaborative robots, mobile platforms, social robots.

You’ll work with state-of-the-art sensors and actuators, and learn how to link and control them to build autonomous robotic systems. You’ll study AI and machine learning techniques and apply them to robotic applications. You’ll also learn to program different robotic systems through the appropriate environments (e.g. ROS, Python, MATLAB, TensorFlow) and acquire the key hardware and software skills requested by the robotics industry, enabling progression into more specialised areas of robotics, depending on your interests.

We’ll also teach you how to present your work to an academic or professional audience, through different means (reports, presentations, multimedia).


How can the MSc Robotics support your career?

Well-qualified graduates with a Masters in Robotics are in high demand and as a result, the career options available to our graduates are extensive. Robotics plays a large and increasing role in manufacturing and product handling, exploration, the office and the home, with products including: unmanned ground and air vehicles, automated warehousing and delivery solutions, autonomous robot cleaning and other household devices, semi-autonomous biomedical and assistive applications, toys and gaming, etc.

Graduates of the programme are well equipped for careers in a range of industries and SMEs, from advanced manufacturing and handling, to oil and gas exploration, nuclear energy to railways and automotive, healthcare to defence. Enrolment in PhD programs and pursuing further academic development and research is also a likely progression outcome.
