MEng (Hons) Robotics Engineering with Professional Placement

University of Bath

Study a progressive area of engineering to pursue a career in robotics and autonomous systems

Does the idea of contributing to the future of an expanding industry in engineering excite you? Our course will help you do this by advancing your knowledge of robotics, artificial intelligence and electronics systems at the forefront of engineering and design.

You'll learn the core aspects of electronic, electrical, computer systems, and mechanical engineering, giving you a comprehensive overview of robotics. From your first day, you’ll develop ideas to address key challenges engineers are trying to solve in the real world. Using creativity and problem-solving, you’ll begin to understand how your role as an engineer can influence the world for the better. This includes thinking about issues for sustainability, ethics, the economy and society. Against this backdrop, you’ll build on your understanding of mechanical, electrical and electronic principles to gain expert knowledge of robotics and autonomous systems.

Our course places project work at the centre of your learning experience. This gives you the chance to put your theory into practice and gain the technical design skills valued in industry. You can also join one of our student teams who compete annually. These include Team Bath Racing Electric, Team Bath Drones and the autonomous underwater systems team.

The first two years of our BEng and MEng courses are the same. This allows you to move between the two, as well as decide if you want to take a placement until the end of your second year.

Our MEng degrees give you an in-depth study experience through advanced taught units and project work and fulfil the educational requirements you need to become a Chartered Engineer.
