This MSc at University College London (UCL) teaches the underlying concepts of Medical Robotics and Artificial Intelligence (AI), and how these technologies can be deployed into surgical environments and improve healthcare.


Students will cover key topics such as data processing and data analysis using modern methods that rely on Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Inteligence (AI); surgical data acquisition, including an understanding of the devices used to capture surgical data (e.g. trackers, robots, imaging devices); robot kinematics, motion planning, control and navigation.


Upon completion of this Medical Robotics and Artificial Intelligence programme at University College London (UCL), a successful student will be ideally placed to pursue a range of careers and opportunities from academic research to careers in industry and contribute to emerging technologies such as use of AI for computer and robot vision tasks, or development of surgical robots for minimally invasive surgery.

This MSc is an excellent starting point for further doctoral studies, as students learn from world-leading UCL researchers at the cutting edge of their fields. The healthcare sector also includes a field of medical technology (MedTech) start-ups and global companies, providing opportunities in industry or public healthcare.
