The MSc in Electronics with Robotic and Control Systems aims to produce postgraduates with a strong practical skill base that will enable them to model, analyse, design and prototype smart robotic sub-systems. Specialist knowledge and practical skillsets will be taught, extensively developed and practiced in the areas of control systems and the analysis, categorisation and design of robotic systems that facilitate movement with multiple degrees of freedom. The knowledge and skillsets taught are key enabling skillsets used to implement devices for applications such as security drones, warehouse robots, medical robots and more humanoid like robots. It is intended that the course will re-focus and enhance existing knowledge in the areas of software engineering, electronic engineering and real-time embedded systems to enable the student to participate in the fast expanding and exciting sector of industrial and consumer robotic systems.

Course structure

Each MSc course consists of three learning modules (40 credits each) plus an individual project (60 credits). Each learning module consists of a short course of lectures and initial hands-on experience. This is followed by a period of independent study supported by a series of tutorials. During this time you complete an Independent Learning Package (ILP). The ILP is matched to the learning outcomes of the module. It can be either a large project or a series of small tasks depending on the needs of each module. Credits for each module are awarded following the submission of a completed ILP and its successful defence in a viva voce examination. This form of assessment develops your communication and personal skills and is highly relevant to the workplace. Overall, each learning module comprises approximately 400 hours of study.

The project counts for one third of the course and involves undertaking a substantial research or product development project. For part-time students, this can be linked to their employment. It is undertaken in two phases. In the first part, the project subject area is researched and a workplan developed. The second part involves the main research and development activity. In all, the project requires approximately 600 hours of work.

Further flexibility is provided within the structure of the courses in that you can study related topic areas by taking modules from other courses as options (pre-requisite knowledge and skills permitting).

Prior to starting your course, you are sent a Course Information and Preparation Pack which provides information to give you a flying start.

MSc Electronics Suite of Courses

The MSc in Electronics has four distinct pathways:
-Robotic and Control Systems
-Embedded Systems
-System-on-Chip Technologies
-Medical Instrumentation

The subject areas covered within the four pathways of the electronic suite of MSc courses offer students an excellent launch pad which will enable the successful graduate to enter into these ever expanding, fast growing and dominant areas. With ever increasing demands from consumers such as portability, increased battery life and greater functionality combined with reductions in cost and shrinking scales of technologies, modern electronic systems are finding ever more application areas.

A vastly expanding application base for electronic systems has led to an explosion in the use of embedded system technologies. Part of this expansion has been led by the introduction of new medical devices and robotic devices entering the main stream consumer market. Industry has also fed the increase in demand particularly within the medical electronics area with the need of more sophisticated user interfaces, demands to reduce equipment costs, demands for greater accessibility of equipment and a demand for ever greater portability of equipment.

The technical tasks undertaken in ILPs, along with the required major project, thoroughly exercise the concepts covered in the course modules and give scope for originality and industry-relevant study. Team-working activities encouraged within modules, along with the all-oral individual examination regimen employed in this Electronics MSc Suite, have proven solidly beneficial in refining the communication and employability-enhancing skills that are strongly valued by industry.

You will have the opportunity to work in a state of the art, dedicated, robotics laboratory for some of your modules and your final project, see the York Robotics Laboratory website for more details on the lab.

The MSc is intended for students who want to learn about robotic and autonomous systems for employment in related industries, or who are seeking a route into a PhD.

The broad aims of the course are to provide:
-A thorough grounding in the use of scientific and engineering techniques as applied to intelligent robotic systems
-A detailed knowledge of the development and deployment of intelligent robotic systems
-A detailed knowledge of the latest developments in intelligent robotics and an ability to reflect critically on those developments
-A detailed understanding of engineering collective robotic systems with emergent behaviours
-Experience of undertaking a substantial group project, on a subject related to research in autonomous robotic systems

Group Project

The aim of this substantial group project is to immerse the students in a life-like scenario of a group of engineers developing a large scale collective robotic system. The project will involve the design, construction and implementation of the control of a heterogeneous collective robotic system, providing students with practical experience of project management and team skills. The system will include both software (such as individual and collective robotic control, low-level programming) and hardware (such as hardware design or customisation) components. The project will culminate in the design and realisation of a collective robotic system that will undergo various test scenarios in the robotics laboratory.

The project preparation will begin towards the end of the Autumn term when groups will be develop a Quality Assurance manual, that will prepare the students to establish effective group policies, procedures and roles for group members, introducing the Quality Assurance processes applied to medium to large projects in industry. The group will be given a scenario and begin establishing requirements and develop outline designs.

In the Summer term, the project will get under way. Groups of 4-6 students will be formed, assigned a target system to design, and provided with a budget. In this term, the students will prepare a design document that will be followed for the remainder of the project. Detailed system specifications will be established and initial prototypes developed. You will make full use of the Robotics Laboratory and spend the vast majority of your time working on robotic systems and attempting to develop an innovative solution to the problem given. Full technical support is available in the laboratory.

A final presentation of each group is done in September where live demos of the system developed have to be provided. This is combined with a group presentation on the work undertaken and contributions made by each individual. Group documentation is submitted along with an individual report.

MSc Architecture is a specialised programme designed to develop digital design and practical manufacturing skills. It builds on the ethos of rigorous and directed design studio tuition of LSBU’s established RIBA part 1 and 2 degrees. It also emphasises the value of detailed and analytical research and the expression of this through structured extended writing.

You’ll extend your understanding of advanced architectural design and progressive contextual urbanism through studio- and workshop-based projects. Tutorials in the design studio and analogue and digital workshops, as well as instruction in advanced design software, will help you define and enhance your personal response to architectural challenges.

The course connects 2D and 3D representations (drawing and physical modelling) with an understanding of digital fabrication and manufacturing, and you’ll have the opportunity to develop and make architectural components using the onsite facilities of the DARLAB(Digital Architecture and Robotic Lab).

You’ll also consider architectural history and theory, and evaluate this to develop your own position in the form of an extended written project on a subject of your choice. For your final design project you'll develop a proposition for a complex building or buildings, drawing together all your learning to highlight the relationships between theory, design and technology.

Modules

Advanced digital design techniques
Integrative technologies: robotic manufacturing
Design 1: research
History and theory: critical thinking
Architecture and theory: dissertation
Technology: technical thesis
Design 2: synthesis

Assessment

All design modules are subject to continuous assessment:

• Design tutors monitor design scheme proposals throughout the semester, and collectively moderate assessments at each semester’s end;
• Individual feedback on design project proposals is provided at every individual studio tutorial;
• An evaluative, critical summary of design projects is provided at all final presentations

Provisional grades are given at the end of semester 1, with all students offered opportunities to review, revise, and add to their design
project submissions:

• A written and illustrated project report examining aspects of environmental technology;
• A major extended written and illustrated assignment (dissertation) on a subject of personal interest related to architecture, and using primary and secondary sources;
• Workshop-based fabrication and design projects;
• A written and illustrated technology report examining aspects of the constructional, environmental, and material implications of the major design project.

Teaching and learning

Teaching takes place in our dedicated Masters level studios, and makes use of LSBU’s specialist workshops; the Digital Architecture Robotic Laboratory, and Centre for Efficient and Renewable Energy in Buildings.

You'll learn in a variety of formats including structured lecture programmes, 1:1 tutorials, small and large group seminars, and interim and final design juries with tutors and invited guests present.

Timetable

Typically each module involves 40 contact hours, and 160 self-managed learning hours; exceptionally, 'Design 2: synthesis' involves 80 contact hours, and 320 self-managed learning hours.

Professional links

The course has been developed in consultation with employers interested in upskilling their workforce with enhanced digital design and manufacturing skills. The course has strong links with the Royal Institute of British Architects, Architects Registration Board, and South London Society of Architects, plus numerous local, regional, and national practices.

Employability

Digital design and practical manufacturing skills are applicable to, and sought after in a very broad range of employment opportunities in architecture and other design-related activities, including visualisation, gaming, animation, media, production engineering, and industrial design.
The course is not intended to lead to a professional qualification, although it reflects the criteria and graduate attributes used by RIBA to deliver their validation services to programmes in architecture.
