Program description

MSc Robotics

Introduction to the Program

This MSc will aim to prepare you to take a leading role in the research and development of future generations of robotics and artificial intelligence systems. Possible employment possibilities of graduates from this Program include working in businesses and projects focusing on security and surveillance (e.g. realised with mobile drones), manufacturing (robotic manipulators), logistics (automated goods delivery), inventory management (automated warehouses), and so on.

In the near future robotic and other autonomous systems will be present in virtually every industry, with their global impact estimated to reach $6.5 trillion per year by 2025 (McKinsey). As new markets turn to robotics for the next step in their evolution, the need for qualified robotic engineers has never been greater. Advances in robotics technology continue to push the boundaries of what we previously thought possible. Our degrees equip students with the technical knowledge and project experience for a career as a robotics expert.

Why Study MSc Robotics at Middlesex University?

Our hands-on master’s degree in robotics blends practice with theory to equip you with the skills, knowledge and experience they need for a career as a robotics Research and Development expert. The postgraduate degree includes significant time working in laboratories under the supervision of our expert teaching staff, many of whom have worked in robotics since the early days of the technology and are leading experts in the area.

This Program produces competent multi-disciplinary professionals who are specialists in the design and production of robotics products. You will focus on developing systems that control physical motion such as those found in robotic applications and industrial automation, using the latest industry hardware and software equipped in our labs and workshops. We will also focus on autonomous systems whose applications go beyond industrial automation, that require a higher degree of flexibility and adaptability that is achieved using artificial intelligence and interfacing with other interdisciplinary fields.

To support your career success, you will build a professional portfolio of work throughout the degree and receive regular guest lectures and project feedback from industry professionals. Over the duration of the course you will gain experience working with industry-standard equipment in our cutting-edge labs and workshops. You will also benefit from our close to links to leading industry organisations and be encouraged to enter national / regional robotics competitions. For those interested, a special opportunity will be given to publish research work in renowned conferences or journals in robotics.
