About

The Robotics programme offered by the University of Birmingham is designed for graduates of numerate disciplines who also have experience of programming. You will explore theories of intelligent robotic control and software tools required to implement standard algorithms in mobile robots and robot manipulators.

Overview

In the Robotics programme offered by the University of Birmingham you will take compulsory modules in which you will study robotics to an advanced level. You will also work on at least one mini-project. Here you will work one-to-one with one of our research-active staff to explore an area in great depth - analysing the problem and existing solutions, developing new ideas and building or evaluating prototype systems.

You will develop your skills in analysis, research, technology and also in presenting and explaining your work clearly and effectively. In addition, you will be able to take several optional taught modules from various fields. All students work on a research project in an area of robotics over the summer, again with expert one-to-one supervision.

Careers

Through the course you will become a specialist in robotics. Our graduates are well equipped for software development roles in the robotics industry or research and development roles, and many go on to pursue a research degree in robotics.

Preparation for your career should be one of the first things you think about as you start university. Whether you have a clear idea of where your future aspirations lie or want to consider the broad range of opportunities available once you have a Birmingham degree, our Careers Network can help you achieve your goal.
