The MSc in Autonomous Systems builds on our research expertise and practical capability to develop innovative solutions for autonomous operations to devise a timely and relevant master’s level programme that is attractive to industry partners and potential students alike. The core of the new programme will be in the “techno-scientific” knowledge domain of Autonomous Systems operating on land, marine or aerial environments and will be aimed at those who wish to develop the specialist knowledge and skills necessary to design and develop autonomous systems. This will be one of first multi-disciplinary programmes in the new School of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics and will consist of 120 credits of taught modules and 60 credits dissertation project. The core of the taught programme will be 5 x 20-credit modules in autonomous systems, engineering design, sensors, modelling and control, machine learning, data processing, and research methods, together with a 60-credit dissertation project. The dissertation project will develop research skills and demonstrate mastery of the autonomous systems subject; the topic of the project will be an individual choice. The remainder of the programme provides some flexibility to meet individual needs with 1 x 20 credit elective module chosen from a short-list of Level 7 modules.
