Robotics engineering

What are the good universities to study Robotics engineering in UK? Do this course include good portion of programming ?
Hello @Hamlet76,

That is nice to see that you want to pursue robotics. It is very interesting topic and it is evolving super quickly at the moment. Robotics is one of the most discussed topics in recent years; robots are becoming ubiquitous in industrial environments as well as in everyday life. However, as the adoption of robotic technology progressively rises, the skill shortage in robotic engineers will also widen accordingly. As ambassador from Cranfield University, I would like to introduce you Cranfield Robotics MSc course. Cranfield university is a leader in Applied Mathematics and Computing applications and therefore it would be worth for you studying Robotics there.

Another important information is, that Robotics MSc degree at Cranfield university is directed by an Industrial Advisory Panel who meet twice a year to ensure that it provides the right mix of hands-on skills and up-to-date knowledge suitable for to the wide variety of applications that this field addresses. Also, a number of members attend the annual student thesis presentations which provides a good opportunity for students to meet key employers. Overall, Cranfield is popular for its high employability.

The Robotics MSc is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) on behalf of the Engineering Council as meeting the requirements for further learning for registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng).

If you want to ask any questions, please do so. :smile:

Hi Lucie, how about King's College London for MSc Robotics. What are your views and how it compares with Cranfield.

Thanks

but they don't have BEng or BSc in robotics engineering

This is correct, we are postgraduate-only!🙂

Hi @Hamlet76,

Robotics is a great choice of specialism to pursue! Not every university call it robotics, for example Mechanical with Electronic/Electrical Engineering, so make sure to look at the course content to see if it is similar to robotics courses. Here at Lancaster University we do Mechatronic Engineering (BEng and MEng) which is similar in my opinion, it combines both mechanical and electronic & electrical plus control systems, some programming, mechatronic systems etc. I'm a current 4th year Mechatronics student and I've worked with a range of different types of robots during my time at university. For example, second year we do an inter-disciplinary project where we have to design and build a robot that can follow a line and complete a task (in my year it was to put a letter on a high shelf). The teams consist of Mechanical, Electronics&Electrical and Mechatronics, many of our projects are interdisciplinary which is unique and reflects industry practice. Another example is my third year dissertation project, I got the opportunity to use a large tracked robot!

Lancaster University is unique because we have a common first year, all engineering students do the same modules in first year. This allows students to try out a range of engineering and if you change your mind on which discipline you want to do, you have until the end of the first year to decide. From second year onwards you specialise in one of our 5 disciplines.
If you have any questions, let me know : )
