Electrical and Robotics Engineering
Develop specialist skills according to your interests and ambitions, including areas such as power electronics, machine intelligence, microcontroller systems and renewable energy. Complement this with in-depth knowledge of electronics such as analogue circuits and embedded systems development.
Electrical, electronic and robotics engineers are involved in the design, development and testing of electrical, electronic and robotic systems. For electrical and electronic engineers this could include anything from driverless cars to medical scanners, while robotics engineers would create robots and robotic systems that are able to complete jobs that humans can’t. You’ll develop specialist skills according to your interests and ambitions, including areas such as power electronics, machine intelligence, microcontroller systems and renewable energy
Study Electronic and Electrical Engineering01 / 01
- We were awarded Athena Swan Bronze status, in recognition of our direct support for women within the School, enabling women who study with us to transition successfully into industry. The Athena Swan project is a charter scheme, aiming to address issues around gender and diversity. Our Women’s Engineering Network - a friendly group of women students and staff - regularly meet to explore all aspects of engineering and to offer each other mutual support at university and beyond.
Why choose us?
- Benefit from state-of-the-art, well equipped laboratories and learning facilities within our new £35 million Engineering Innovation Centre.
- Our Electronic and Robotics degrees are accredited by the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET).
- Our courses offer an optional 48-week sandwich placement in industry.
What can you do with a robotics degree?
With a wide range of career opportunities available you could work for robotics, digital technology, automotive, telecommunications, electronics consultancies and electronic equipment manufacturers.
