About Robotics & Cybernetics
Masters degrees in Robotics & Cybernetics equip postgraduates with the skills to design, develop and produce man-made systems which mimic biological phenomena.
Taught MSc degrees are typical for the field, though research-based MRes and MPhil programmes may also be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant Engineering or Science subject.
Courses in this field train you to examine the design and function of any biological system, and replicating it through digital, mechanical and electronic formats. They are highly interdisciplinary in nature, combining theory from Mechanics, Anthropology, Psychology, Biology and more.
You will explore theories in biological processes such as cognition and adaptation, and translate them through techniques such as artificial intelligence programming and evolutionary computing.
Opportunities exist to specialise your studies in areas such as mobile robotics, virtual reality simulation, sensors and imaging technology, and control systems and information processors.
Careers include roles in automation, games and mobile apps design, assistive and wearable technologies, facilities management, communications management, public services, security, medicine, satellite technology, and even planetary exploration.
