Study type Taught


Learn the essential skills and techniques needed to develop robotics, autonomous systems, and embedded artificial intelligence.

Our course will help you take your career forward in a progressive area of engineering. It balances advanced theory with technical skills so that you can learn to develop complete operational robots and autonomous systems.

You’ll explore robotics engineering and software, autonomous systems technologies, processes and products throughout the industry value chain. Other areas you'll cover include computational intelligence, machine learning, embedded systems and sensors.

Your studies will focus on tackling engineering challenges using whole-systems approaches. We’ll give you the tools to analyse and evaluate the impact of resources, processes and products. You’ll consider stakeholder needs and factors such as technical, economic, environmental and social considerations. The focus on practical learning ensures you have the skills to design and build robotic platforms and autonomous systems, using the same systems as those used in industry.

Learn from experts in the field You’ll learn from academics in our Departments of Computer Science, Electronic & Electrical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering. Your learning experience will benefit from their expertise in our Centre for Autonomous Robotics (CENTAUR), where they are advancing research and building international collaborations in this area.

Use specialist facilities Project work gives you access to facilities and workshops in our departments of Electronic & Electrical, Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering. These cover a range of areas including: - rapid prototyping (3D printers, laser cutting, additive manufacturing)

  • advanced electronics systems design

  • power electronics

  • electric vehicles, robotics and autonomous systems

  • advanced CNC machines

  • real-time digital simulation

Start your future here You’ll graduate with the skills to innovate and deliver resource-efficient practices and solutions for robotic and autonomous systems. Your knowledge will prepare you for a career in the engineering sector or for further postgraduate study and research.
