This is a one year full-time programme. You will take three compulsory modules in which you will study robotics to an advanced level. You will also work on at least one mini-project. Here you will work one-to-one with one of our research-active staff to explore an area in great depth – analysing the problem and existing solutions, developing new ideas and building or evaluating prototype systems. You will develop your skills in analysis, research, technology and also in presenting and explaining your work clearly and effectively. In addition, you will be able to take several optional taught modules from various fields. All students work on a research project in an area of robotics over the summer, again with expert one-to-one supervision.

The course will be taught through a variety of methods. There will be some small lecture classes, problem-based workshops and also one-to-one supervision. There will be some group work as part of the taught modules. There may be opportunities for some industry-based project work. Perhaps most importantly, you will be part of a small, highly qualified group of students working closely with researchers within the Robotics lab.

Through the course you will become a specialist in robotics. Graduates from this programme will be well-equipped for software development roles in the robotics industry or research and development roles, or to go on to pursue a research degree in robotics.

About the School of Computer Science

The School of Computer Science at University of Birmingham has consistently been ranked in the Top 10 in UK league tables and has regularly achieved high satisfaction scores in National Student Surveys. 95% of our students go into graduate employment (Destination of Leavers from Higher Education Survey 2014/15), and our School is ranked 8th nationally for research quality in the '2014 Research Excellence Framework'.
Our work is regularly presented in international conferences and journals, indicating the high standards we achieve in research. In 2008, the UK Funding Councils undertook a national assessment of the quality of research at British universities, the RAE. Among 81 submissions nationally for computer science, the School is equal 7th in the proportion of 4* awards, for research quality that is world-leading in terms of originality, significance and rigour.

This programme is intended for graduates with a previous degree in Computer Science or a related discipline, and with a solid foundation in programming. It allows students to broaden their knowledge of cutting edge areas of Computing through the choice of options from a range of advanced taught modules. It also provides the opportunity for students to deepen their knowledge of selected areas of Computing by individual project work. The final four months of the programme is spent on a summer project. This could either be a software development oriented project, or a research oriented project, supervised by a member of staff who is active in that research area. Students undertaking research oriented projects (typically those interested in a career in research and development, or the pursuit of further studies, such as a PhD) will also complete one or two research mini-projects in the first part of the programme and undertake a Research Skills course.

This Masters comprises two mini-projects, one per semester, which lead into the summer project. In previous years, students have surprised themselves by their achievement, regularly producing project work at the level expected of a very good first year research student. Your project supervisors are able to draw on their research experience to help you develop your ability to work confidently on difficult tasks.

The core modules of the degree are:

Research Skills
First Semester Mini-project
Second Semester Mini-project
Summer Masters Project
In addition, there is a wide variety of optional modules in different areas of Computer Science to choose from.

We also support you by providing training in transferable skills relevant to your project work and in your future career. Our extensive computing facilities are available 24 hours a day (including a wireless network) to allow you to link in to our services from your own machines and the information resources (specialist library, information retrieval databases, electronic journals, etc) to support your project and course work.
