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

- We were awarded Athena Swan Bronze status, in recognition of our direct support for women within the School of Engineering, enabling women students 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.
