For the life scientists, this will open new horizons powered by Robotics and AI, skills in high demand in today’s job market. For the engineers, this will go beyond a typical robotics training, towards reinventing the way robots are designed and used with bioinspiration at heart.

This unique combination of biology and engineering will develop core professional skills including working across disciplines and responsible open-ended innovation. The Biorobotics programme at University of Bristol centres around a common core in fundamental robotics and life sciences, followed by dedicated taught and project-based biorobotics units that will walk you through latest research and applications, with a hands-on understanding of how to build these systems yourself, and demonstrations of how they can be used for good.


Biorobotics MSc students will be at the frontier of bio-inspired robotics. This will make them attractive for the broader robotics and AI industry. Their cross-disciplinary understanding of life sciences will further mean they can work in the life science sector looking to embed robotics and AI in their work flow. Their unique view on robotics and life sciences will also ensure they are well-suited to work in and found start-ups, continue with academic research or work with NGOs interested in deploying robots for good.
