Entry Requirements

A minimum of a lower second class honours degree (2.2) in a technical subject such as robotics, computing, engineering (mechanical / electrical/ electronic), physics or mathematics.

Students with advanced standing who can evidence an academic ability to a similar level may also be considered.

Applicants will also be asked to provide evidence of: a sound understanding of A level mathematics (linear algebra, calculus, differential equations), basic knowledge of computer hardware and operating systems, basic competency in a programming language such as Python, C, C++, Java or similar. Basic skills in electrical engineering would be a plus.

645.jpg My Masters was invaluable as a transition between degree level study and starting a PhD. It allowed me to focus my interest and also gave me the necessary skills and confidence required to move into full time research. Robotics appealed to me because it incorporates a wide range of knowledge, is a growing field and has been of general interest to me for many years.

The best thing about the course was the exciting new knowledge which was taught throughout most of the modules. For my MSc project I looked at using vision to enable a robot arm to grasp a highly deformable object such as an item of clothing. The driving force behind the project was the development of a domestic robot that would be able to help with household chores such as the laundry.

Since completing my Masters I have started a PhD at the University of Plymouth to further develop my MSc project. During my PhD I have also become involved with the University's very successful Robot Football Team and regularly give talks about the robotics laboratory and robot football at open days.

My Masters year was one of the hardest years of my life but the rewards it provided and the new knowledge I gained far outweighed the sleepless nights.
