Join a hands-on, state-of-the-art course that focuses on the practical side of robotics ad the effects that robots have on society.
Intended as both an academic and industry facing course, the subject is aimed at graduates from a computing, engineering or science discipline who want to develop their understanding of the practical and theoretical aspects of robotic systems. This is an area with a wide-range of applications in industry and research.
This MSc focuses on the computational side of Robotics with an emphasis on the software engineering aspects. In addition it provides the ability to investigate the field of Artificial Intelligence applicable to this sector and a substantial portion of the programme concentrates on the effect that robots have on society. It is the intention of this programme to produce specialists with up to date knowledge and skills that are capable of being used in an industrial, commercial and research environment.
Although the necessary background is introduced as appropriate, the course deals with problem-solving and the provisioning of real time aspects of computer based solutions and applications using current and emerging technologies. In addition to developing an understanding of underlying principles, students are engaged in the practical application of design, implementation, trouble-shooting and management for real-world problems.
Key Course Features
The programme aims to provide the students with the following: -Hands-on experience of state of the art equipment. -Specialist, advanced technical skills in the area of Robotics. -An advanced understanding and competence in the hardware and software used for the development and use of Robotics. -The ability to critically appraise and disseminate research results. -A sound basis for further research and / or professional development.
