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
