Robotics Engineering prepares you for a fascinating and rewarding career, developing the electronic and mechanical engineering skills you’ll need to become a robotic engineer.
Our course draws on knowledge from all the necessary strands of engineering. You’ll develop robotic and mechatronic systems for a range of applications including modern manufacturing, aerospace and the nuclear industry.
You’ll graduate with a wide skills base but we place a particular emphasis on complex systems for tele-operated, semi-autonomous and autonomous robots. You’ll incorporate aspects of sensing, control theory, computational intelligence and computing in your learning.
As well as hands-on technical skills you’ll develop the critical decision-making, creative thinking and problem-solving skills you need to succeed in the workplace.
Gain access to cutting-edge resources through our Advanced Digital Manufacturing Technology (ADMT) facility.
