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.

Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to directly enter their chosen Honours degree programme.

This 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.

Why study with us

  • Gain access to cutting-edge resources through our Advanced Digital Manufacturing Technology (ADMT) facility.
  • Optional modules enable you to select specialist topics according to your interests, and tailor your programme of study to your own aspirations.
  • 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.
