The world of robotics is exciting and fast paced – revolutionising the way we live, work and play.
This course is for you if you’re a non-engineering graduate wishing to work for engineering companies. This MSc will give you the skills needed to work for employers developing or applying: -Devices or systems for robotics and automation -Smart systems with autonomous capability -Ubiquitous and wearable computing
You build on your individual responsibility, critical awareness and creative thinking, and examine issues such as: -Project management, planning and scheduling -Resourcing -Documentation and communication
We also offer this MSc with an industrial placement year, making it a two-year course, or with a Masters industrial placement.
How will I study?
You’ll study an introduction to the course in the autumn term, with some tests and practical robotics projects. In the spring term you take taught modules.
Across the spring and summer terms you’ll work on your Masters Individual Project, either at the University or at a company.
Modules are assessed via: -Hands-on projects -Reports -Essays -Unseen examinations
The project is assessed by a report, presentation and dissertation.
On our Masters courses, you’ll complete a substantial MSc project, which is often practical as well as theoretical. The project is designed for you to excel in your personal and professional development and to consolidate the material covered in your modules.
It demands individual responsibility and exposes you to issues of: -Project management -Resourcing -Planning -Scheduling -Documentation and communication -Critical awareness and creative thinking
In Engineering and Design, project assessment can include interim reports, presentations and a dissertation. Some projects are undertaken in groups and replicate the type of professional teamwork expected in industry. Topics are generated from the academic research and industrial collaborations in our Department, and a member of faculty supervises the project.
Our aim is to ensure that every student who wants to study with us is able to despite financial barriers, so that we continue to attract talented and unique individuals.
