Be inspired to innovate and develop the robots, artificial intelligence and autonomous systems of tomorrow’s world. Gain advanced theoretical and practical knowledge from our world-leading experts in interactive and intelligent robotics, and graduate ready to pursue an exciting career in anything from home automation to deep sea or space exploration. You’ll also have the opportunity to gain invaluable industry experience and cultivate professional contacts on an integral work placement.
Enhance your employability and grow your professional network with an optional integral work placement. You can choose to work in the UK, or overseas in countries including France, Germany or Japan. We have helped students to secure placements with a wide range of companies including Bosch, IBM, Microsoft and Toshiba.
The taught elements of this programme are also delivered to students on Year 1 of the MSc Robotics Technology programme.
Get up-to-date with the latest developments in artificial life and intelligence, adaptive behaviour, information visualisation, neural computation and dynamic systems, as well as remote access and monitoring systems. Our seminars series with speakers from industry and academia gives you the opportunity to keep ahead in this fast moving field.
Give yourself the edge. Our programme distinguishes itself from other robotics masters programmes, in the UK and abroad, by ensuring a deeper theoretical and practical knowledge of interactive and intelligent robotics.
Expand your skills with first-class facilities including 3D rapid prototyping systems, in-house PCB design and assembly tools, and our award winning Plymouth Humanoid robots.
Get expert training from members of the Marine and Industrial Dynamic Analysis (MIDAS) research group and the Centre for Robotics and Neural Systems (CRNS).
Become a professional in your field – this programme is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) so as a successful graduate, you’ll be eligible for Chartered Engineer status with a step on the ladder to becoming a professional robotics engineer. You’ll also be eligible to apply for a number of IET scholarships.
Benefit by combining disciplines that are traditionally taught separately. You’ll graduate ready with the expertise and joined-up knowledge to design and develop fully integrated mechanical, electronic, control and computing systems.
Accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) so as a successful graduate, you’ll be eligible for Chartered Engineer status.
On this programme you’ll gain a solid and broad understanding of the latest developments and issues in robotics. You’ll build theoretical and practical knowledge of control and design as well as covering the interface between real-world devices, autonomous processing and evaluation of acquired information.
