This MSc Advanced Robotics programme offered at Queen Mary University of London explores revolutionary developments in the field of robotics, one of the fastest growing industries in the world.


Its central component, the extended research project, offers you the opportunity to publish your research and build a career profile through theoretical and practical work at the Centre for Advanced Robotics.

What you'll study

This MSc Advanced Robotics programme offered at Queen Mary University of London is closely aligned with ARQ, which specialises in control and power, human-machine interaction, perception, design and mechatronics, drones, and AI and cognition. 

After graduating you’ll be able to develop, analyse, programme, integrate and deploy complex engineering systems such as industrial manipulators, autonomous mobile robots and vehicles, biomedical systems for surgery and assistance, robots for extreme environments, wearables and virtual reality technology.

A major part of the MSc is your individual research project, which will be based around the internationally-recognised research taking place in both our School of Engineering and Materials Science (SEMS) and our School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science (EECS).

Your project will be designed in collaboration with our academic staff and external organisations, such as Shadow Robot, Ocado, Google, Automata, Kuka, Q-Bot and many others. The project will develop your research capability, as well as your ability to create integrated robotics and intelligent systems that can operate in a range of possibly unstructured and dynamic environments. 

Through your project you’ll apply the theory from your taught modules, while taking advantage of our state-of-the-art facilities. You’ll gain expertise in design, kinematics, dynamics, control, electronics, programming, signal and data processing, machine learning, mechatronics and manufacturing technology.
