Course Summary:
**Robots and AI are transforming the way we live and work. Enjoy access to the superb facilities of our new Robotics Lab and FabLab on this practical, hands-on course.** Drones are being used to deliver life-saving medicines to remote areas of the world. Unmanned robots are increasingly sent into hazardous or inaccessible areas. And, while the demand for expertise in this exciting field is booming, the UK lacks qualified personnel. - New Robotics Lab featuring humanoid Baxter and Nao robots, and our MARC (Multi-Actuated Robotic Companion) robots - Digitally fabricate models and prototypes in our FabLab with a huge variety of CNC (Computer Numerical Control) 3D printers, laser scanners and cutters - Benefit from the Hull Immersive Visualization Environment (HIVE) which offers advanced visualization, motion capture and computer graphics technology - Our teaching is informed by our research in simulation, visualization, dependable systems, robotics, 3D printing, and mobile and distributed computing Mechatronics and Robotics is a high-tech, interdisciplinary programme that combines electronics, mechanical engineering and computer science - and applies them to the design and manufacture of intelligent systems. Extend your studies by spending a year on an industrial placement and studying for a Masters level degree **Official Team GB partners** Did you know that the University of Hull is the official University Partner of Team GB?

Forget about the stereotype, Hull is a hidden gem which gets great student satisfaction. The city is really quirky so look out for white telephone boxes, chip spice and traditional pubs with unusual names. The university campus is very green with a warm atmosphere. The area around the uni is lovely, with lots of independent restaurants, shops and small bars which have a great selection of cheap craft beers. Living costs are really low, with student housing available close to campus. There’s a choice of different clubs for all music tastes. Getting in to town is easy and quick with frequent buses and cheap taxis.
