COURSE SUMMARY

This course is for students who already have a strong engineering background and wish to specialise in robotics and automation. This course has a particular emphasis on advanced robotics, where robots are designed to operate with a degree of intelligence.

You will gain a firm grounding in control engineering and intelligent systems concepts, along with the ability to comprehend and fully specify integrated automation systems embodying intelligence, robotic and automation hardware and software, and virtual reality (VR)/simulation technologies.

The course also provides a suitable background for research in advanced autonomous systems with reference to robotics.

TEACHING

You will be taught via a series of lectures and workshops with many of the modules taught via extensive hands-on practical lab-based sessions.

Practical experience includes the use of robotics platforms to produce a software system using the MATLAB toolboxes or the C programming language or to produce a finished hardware/software based mobile robotics system.

ASSESSMENT

70% coursework and 30% examination.

FACILITIES

There are dedicated labs and facilities for Robotics and Automation students, including: Industrial robots, flexi-picker, manipulators (Hitachi, KUKA) humanoid robots plus many mobile robots. Plus dedicated computing facilities

And if you do your MSc Project with an aerospace company, as many of our students do, then you will also have access to their facilities.

EMPLOYABILITY

Graduates from this course can expect to find employment in a range of industries. Robotics and automation are continuously developing topics that present many career opportunities in areas such as robotic design, control systems integration and design, factory automation, engineering management and research.

LINKS WITH INDUSTRY

Many of our students work on final year projects in conjunction with aeronautical companies associated with the University.

FURTHER STUDY

Many of our students go on to further study at the Centre for Advanced Robotics which is very closely linked with this course.
