Summary

Robotics and autonomous systems (RAS) are set to shape innovation in the 21st century, underpinning research in a wide range of challenging areas: the ageing population, efficient health care, safer transport, and secure energy. The UCL edge in scientific excellence, industrial collaboration and cross-sector activities make it ideally placed to drive IT robotics and automation education in the UK.

The programme provides an overview of robotic and computational tools for robotics and autonomous systems as well as their main computational components: kinetic chains, sensing and awareness, control systems, mapping and navigation. Optional modules in machine learning, human-machine interfaces and computer vision help students grasp fields related to robotics more closely, while the project thesis allows students to focus on a specific research topic in depth.

Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits.

The programme consists of four core modules (60 credits), one to four optional modules (15 to 60 credits), up to three elective modules (45 credits), and a dissertation/report (60 credits).

Upon successful completion of 180 credits, you will be awarded a MSc in Robotics and Computation.
