The programmes aim is to provide graduates in engineering or relevant scientific disciplines with specialist knowledge of robotics, with emphasis on automation applications. As a multidisciplinary activity dealing with the integration of mechanical devices, sensors, electronics and 'intelligent' computer-based controllers, the programme comprises a number of core robotics-related modules, including Dynamical Systems & Simulation; Group Design Project; Computer-Aided Manufacture; Computer-Aided Design; Sensors & Actuators; Real Time Systems & Control; Robotic Systems. The final part of the programme is an individual project closely linked with our department's research activities.
- Unrivalled location in the heart of London giving access to major libraries and leading scientific societies, including the BCS Chartered Institute for IT, the Institution of Engineering and Technology and the Institution for Mechanical Engineers (IMechE).
- Graduates gain experience of designing robotic devices to provide smart engineering solutions.
- Access to speakers of international repute through seminars and external lectures, enabling students to keep abreast of emerging knowledge in intelligent systems and related fields.
- Research-led individual project supervised by leading experts in their fields.

- Description -
Robotics is a multi-disciplinary activity dealing with the integration of mechanical devices, sensors, electronics and ‘intelligent’ computer-based controllers. The programme is therefore built around core modules such as Robotic Systems, Computer Vision, Sensors and Actuators, Real Time Systems and Control, which are complemented by a wide range of optional modules. The final part of the programme is an individual project that is closely linked with the Department’s research activities.
- Course purpose -
For graduates in engineering or a related scientific discipline, from this programme you will gain an awareness of the latest developments in Robotics while completing research and development work for your individual research project. This will provide valuable preparation for a career in research or industry.
- Course format and assessment -
Lectures; tutorials; seminars; laboratory sessions. Assessed through: coursework; written examinations; final project report.
Via the Department’s Careers Programme students are able to network with top employers and obtain advice on how to enhance career prospects. Our graduates have gone on to have very successful careers in industry and research, working areas such as manufacturing, automotive and aerospace. Recent employers include Cummins Inc. and Transport Alstom.
