Our flexible course lets you tailor your studies to gain the skills, project experience and professional networks you need to achieve your engineering career ambitions in the field of robotics – and beyond. With the option to study our robotics course over a three-year (BEng) or four-year (MEng) period, you’ll gain the technical knowledge and project experience that will give you a competitive edge as a robotics engineer. You’ll explore all aspects of engineering to get a broad understanding of robotics, design, electronics, mechatronics and networking solutions. Using the latest hardware and software, including LabVIEW, SolidWorks and STEP-7, you’ll also learn to develop systems that control physical motion – such as the ones you’ll find in robotic applications and industrial automation. You’ll have the flexibility to tailor your studies to complement your personal interests and career ambitions. From year two, you’ll have the option to carry on with your BEng Robotics or transfer to a design engineering, electronics or mechatronics programme. If you’re applying for our four-year MEng course, you’ll also gain your master’s qualification as soon as you successfully finish your undergraduate study. Our weekly guest lectures give you the chance to enhance your industry knowledge and build contacts with some of the industry’s leading experts and companies. They’ll also give you the help, advice and feedback you need to start building your professional portfolio while you study. Our location gives you access to industry contacts, work experience opportunities and the chance to showcase your work at design engineering competitions. You’ll also have the option to get a feel for the industry with a paid, year-long work placement. You be supported throughout your studies from your Personal Tutor to your Graduate Academic Assistant. Each one has studied your subject and will provide the support you need based on their own experience. If you need a little help with writing, numeracy or library skills, we can help with that too. Our robotics degree has Institution of Engineering Designers (IED) accreditation and also meets the academic standards of Chartered Engineer (CEng). This means you’ll be able to apply for CEng status after gaining enough experience in an engineering role.
Build your professional portfolio while you study to gain a competitive edge in the field of robotics engineering.
Whether you opt for the BEng Robotics or MEng Robotics you will study a broad range of engineering disciplines including systems, mechanical, electrical, computer and control engineering. You will specialise in the fundamentals of robotics, learning how to model, simulate, design and programme a wide range of robotics tools while gaining an in-depth experience of the software architectures used for complex robotic systems. The course provides a range of practical skills and knowledge required for robotics engineering, including how to engineer systems and develop sensory processing for autonomous robotics. The MEng Robotics degree allows you to specialise further and give you the option to study new and emerging areas in Robotics. You will demonstrate your advanced skills and mastery of the area by working on a team project in your chosen specialism.
