Why study robotics?
In the future, robots will be part of our everyday lives, helping our society in areas such as healthcare, education and entertainment. Industry forecasters predict that the service robot market will increase in value to an annual $66 billion by 2025.
We’re becoming increasingly reliant on intelligence systems to perform tasks. They’re found in a wide range of goods, from unmanned vehicles in aerospace, robots and sub-sea exploration, to consumer products, domestic appliances and the creative arts.
Why UWE Bristol?
Our new inclusive, problem-based curriculum will broaden our engineering audience, enabling students from a wider range of backgrounds to pursue a career in engineering. To date, we’re the first university in the UK to transform our curriculum alongside constructing a new engineering building.
BEng(Hons) Robotics is taught by world-class researchers from one of Europe’s largest robotics labs. You’ll gain plenty of hands-on experience building and testing your inventions, using the latest industry-standard equipment in our state-of-the-art facilities.
Our robotics degree at UWE Bristol is suitable for anyone interested in understanding and developing robots. You’ll study an engineering-based course, which also extends into areas such as artificial life, biology-inspired robotics, swarm intelligence and human-robot interaction.
Where can it take me?
As a student engineer, you’ll start your professional journey towards becoming an incorporated or chartered engineer from day one. You’ll learn by doing, applying and revisiting your early skills through embedded project weeks and development of digital and physical prototypes, just as you would in practice.
There is an increasing demand for graduates with the technical and creative abilities to work in this industry. You’ll be prepared for a rewarding career devising, developing and managing intelligent systems in sectors such as manufacturing, aerospace, healthcare, leisure and the creative arts.
