Robotics

Want to play your part in the rapidly advancing field of robotics? Fascinated by artificial intelligence and the innovations that will underpin the development of tomorrow’s robots? This course combines theory with lots of hands-on, practical laboratory sessions designing and building motors and robots. Work placement in your third year provides industrial experience and strengthens your CV, whilst putting your engineering skills into action in the real world. Our emphasis is on software aspects of robotics and embedded systems in the final year, building on a good grounding of electronics, mathematics and mechanics. We offer four rapid-prototyping printers, printed circuit design and manufacturing and expert technical support. You'll learn to build and program robots, ranging from small wheeled robots and industrial robotic equipment to advanced humanoids. We have the highest number of humanoid robots available to undergraduate students in Europe. **Key features:** - Benefit from outstanding teaching: in the 2017 National Student Survey 100% of our final year students said that “The course is intellectually stimulating”. - Our robotics courses have a large number of laboratory practical sessions embedded in their modules, and this is a strong feature of the robotics teaching in Plymouth. This ensures that you can consolidate theory learned in lectures using real practical tasks, making your understanding of topics much more concrete. - Take opportunities throughout your degree to build and program robots, ranging from small wheeled robots through industrial robotic equipment to advanced humanoids. - Benefit by studying modules that will support you to design and build robots and automated systems. Our emphasis is on the software aspects of robotics and embedded systems. - Experience the highest number of humanoid robots available to undergraduate students in Europe. - Capitalise on the opportunity to take a work placement in your third year, putting your robotics skills into action in the real world. - Rise to the challenge as part of the Plymouth Humanoids team, battling it out in a variety of international robot competitions. - Join our Robotics Society and have the opportunity to assist robot development for international competitions such as the Robocup humanoid football league and robot athletics. - Immerse yourself in a degree accredited by the Institution for Engineering and Technology (IET) and meet the educational requirements for becoming a Chartered Engineer (CEng). - Benefit from free IET membership while you are on the course. - To complement your formal learning we offer regular PALS sessions that provide the opportunity for you to learn with and from your peers. Share knowledge, discuss ideas, and ask questions in a relaxed and friendly environment.
