Be part of the robotics revolution. Study a progressive area of engineering to pursue a career in robotics and automation.
This course is new for 2018.
Our course is for aspiring engineers who want to contribute to the future of an expanding industry. You’ll advance your knowledge in areas of robotics, artificial intelligence and electronics systems at the forefront of engineering and design.
In your first two years, you will learn the underlying principles of electronic, electrical and mechanical engineering. You’ll combine this with aspects of computer science to give you a comprehensive overview of robotics engineering.
To become a skilled engineer, it is important for you to be able to develop your technical design skills. That’s why our course places project work at the centre of your learning experience. Group projects challenge you to work in teams to solve practical engineering problems. As well as gaining hands-on experience, you’ll also develop valuable managerial and business skills. You can join one of our student teams who compete annually. These include Team Bath Racing Electric, Bath Drones and the autonomous underwater systems team.
You’ll complete your degree with an individual project. This is your chance to focus on where you want to build your expertise. You could explore areas of robotics and autonomous systems, artificial intelligence and systems engineering.
You’ll graduate with an in-depth understanding of the operation, components and techniques of robotics engineering. Your studies will prepare you for a career in robotics and automation in areas such as robotic systems design, autonomous systems and medical robotics.
Choosing the MEng route gives you a more in-depth study experience through advanced taught units and semester-long individual and group project work.
You’ll learn from academics with expertise in electronic and electrical engineering. Their international collaborations and research activities feed into undergraduate teaching and contribute to your learning experience.
You'll have access to facilities specially equipped for your degree. Our facilities are designed to be similar to industrial workspaces so you gain an insight into what it is like to work in a professional environment. These include laboratories for tomography, superconductivity, autonomous systems and robotics. We also have facilities for optoelectronics and circuit board prototyping, and a mechanical workshop.
We work with industrial partners to make sure our course content reflects the needs of engineering industries. You’ll graduate with the technical expertise and transferable skills that will open up employment opportunities for you. You can pursue a career in high-technology industries in electronics, power, aerospace, communication, robotics or manufacturing. Or you could find employment in other sectors such as IT, financial services, accountancy, the armed forces or business. Many of our graduates continue their studies to pursue an academic or research career.
