About

The University College London (UCL) Robotics and Computation degree edges in scientific excellence, industrial collaboration and cross-sector activities make it ideally placed to drive IT robotics and automation education in the UK.

Overview

Why study this degree at UCL?

UCL received the highest percentage (96%) for quality of research in Computer Science and Informatics in the UK's most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF2014).

With the external project involvement anticipated, students on this programme will have the opportunity to interact and collaborate with key companies in the industry - Airbus, Shadow Hand, OC Robotics and Intuitive Surgical - and work on real-world problems through industry-supported projects.

Recent investment across UCL in the Faculty of Engineering and The Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment has created the infrastructure for an exciting robotics programme, which will be interdisciplinary and unique within the UK and Europe.

Careers

Robotics is a growing field encompassing many technologies with applications across different industrial sectors, and spanning manufacturing, security, mining, design, transport, exploration and healthcare. Graduates from our MSc programme will have diverse job opportunities in the international marketplace with their knowledge of robotics and the underpinning computational and analytical fundamentals that are highly valued in the established and emerging economies. Students will also be well placed to undertake PhD studies in robotics and computational research specific to robotics but translational across different analytical disciplines or applied fields that will be influenced by new robotic technologies and capabilities.

Employability

This University College London (UCL) Robotics and Computation degree programme prepares students to enter a robotics-related industry or any other occupation requiring engineering or analytical skills. Graduates with skills to develop new robotics solutions and solve computational challenges in automation are likely to be in demand globally.
