Course introduction

Introduction


The Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) Robotics Technology programme moves gradually from a taught-based approach in the first two years to a project-based approach in the final year, with the aim to encourage and support students to develop a self-motivated learning attitude and self-management skills, such as working effectively under time and resource constraints.

The general aims of the course are to:

  • Be inspirational and to support the students to unlock their potential with an innovative, experience-based, and self-motivated approach to robotics and to support their personal and professional development for a fulfilling post-graduate career in engineering;
  • Provide a sustained programme of study at honours level that satisfies the requirements of accreditation by the Institution of Engineering and Technology and enables employment as a professional engineer;
  • Be highly informative and capable of stretching the intellectual skills of students to form an exceptional knowledge base suitable for a future career in Engineering based industry and research.
  • Encourage and support students during their professional development in applying technical and generic skills and to foster flexible and creative intellectual skills that will facilitate life-long learning and continuing professional development.
  • Establish an extensive and in-depth foundation knowledge on which to develop further skills as technology advances and to enable students to apply engineering principles, mathematical modelling and advanced design methods to robotics and electronics problems;
  • Provide the opportunity to 'learn through design' via practical and project based work, particularly within the context of circuits and robot systems design.
