Robotics is one of the most discussed topics in recent years; robots are becoming ubiquitous in industrial environments as well as in everyday life. However, as the adoption of robotic technology progressively rises, the skill shortage in robotic engineers will also widen accordingly. This Robotics MSc course will offer students the opportunity to gain practical robot programming experience.
Eight one-week assessed modules, a group project and an individual project. Students are also supported in their learning and personal development through exposure to; industry seminars, group poster session, group discussions, group presentations, video demonstrations, case studies, laboratory experiments, coursework and project work. Students will receive hands-on experience with our range of conventional and collaborative robots located in the Aerospace Integration Research Centre – supporting practice workshops, student group projects and individual projects. You will participate in a study tour carried out at ABB Robotics in Milton Keynes where you will spend up to a week at our industrial partner ABB Robotics’ training centre receiving practical robot training.
The new MSc in Robotics will use standard teaching and assessment methods as well as technology enhanced teaching (TET) methods such as a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) to support different learning styles. Theories and fundamental of robotics will be taught in both lecture and workshop formats where videos and technology demonstrators will be used as teaching aids. For example, a collaborative robot will be used in the teaching of Human-Robot Interaction and Virtual Reality technology will be used in teaching Digital Robotics. Lecture videos will be available on VLE to provide an interactive learning experience. Students will receive hands-on experience on programming industrial robots initially in a robot simulation lab, which follows by a practical robot-programming workshop using real industrial robot supported by ABB Robotics. The use of robotics technology will enable students to see robot engineering phenomena first-hand where they can test engineering principles and theories with real devices.
The MSc in Robotics is designed to equip you with the skills required to pursue a successful career working in the UK and overseas.
The International Federation of Robotics’ Executive Summary report shows that the deployment of industrial robots had constantly increased in the last decade and it is predicted that global robot installations will increase by at least 15% annually in the next 3 years. Mike Wilson, the President of British Automation and Robot Association, has highlighted that robotics is one of the key technologies in ensuring UK’s manufacturing can be as competitive and productive as possible and the UK needs to address skill pipeline issues in order to meet the skills that are required by the industry going forward. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the mechanical engineering field – which includes robotics engineers – was projected to experience five percent employment growth over ten years to 2022. It is important to recognise these increasing needs which will lead to a high demand for highly trained robotic engineers.
