About this program

Robotics (with a Year in Industry) Beng

Robotics is on the cusp of an exciting new era as robots become more intelligent and find applications in an ever more diverse range of industries including Consumer and Healthcare Robotics.

According to a recent report, Robotics is the fastest growing industry in the world and is poised to become the largest in the next decade. We are in the midst of an increase in the pace of technological change and the changes in the coming decade will be a magnitude of order greater than anything that has gone before. A shift is about to take place that will forever change society; our ability to manufacture novel robots and new intelligent systems will both change the way we interact with technology and will allow technology to interact with us and our world in a far more nuanced way.

Our four-year Robotics degree reflects recent Software and Hardware technological advances and exposes you to new, much sought-after skills and up-to-date areas of research. The degree includes recent technological advances in in areas such as Embedded Systems, Intelligent Systems and Mechatronics. You will experiment and interact with specialist software, hardware interfaces and systems, as well as exotic robots and fabrication facilities. You will be taught by academics whose research is rated as internationally excellent by the latest Research Excellence Framework in areas including Robotics and Intelligent Systems.

The course is ranked 3rd in the UK for course satisfaction and value added (Guardian University Guide 2022).
