As the demand for robotics engineers is increasing, this MSc has been developed for graduates to equip themselves with the skills and knowledge required for associated careers. The course is suitable for those with essential engineering mathematics knowledge and basic computer programming skills.
A unique experience of the breadth of the field of robotics providing students with not only a broad understanding of their uses and applications in modern society but also the fundamental science behind them.
The International Federation of Robotics’ Executive Summary report shows that the deployment of industrial robots has constantly increased in the last decade and it is predicted that global robot installations will increase by at least 15% annually in the next three years. Mike Wilson, the President of British Automation and Robot Association, has highlighted that robotics is one of the key technologies in ensuring the UK’s manufacturing can be as competitive and productive as possible, and the UK needs to address skill pipeline issues in order to meet the skills that are required by the industry going forward. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the mechanical engineering field - which includes robotics engineers - was projected to experience 5% employment growth over ten years to 2022. It is important to recognise these increasing needs which will lead to a high demand for highly trained robotic engineers.
Accreditation will be sought for the MSc in Robotics from the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).
