MSc Robotics, Autonomous Systems and Telecommunications

Our new 12-month Master of Science Robotics, Autonomous Systems and Telecommunications (MSc ROBUST) course aims to provide a solid grounding in the technologies and applications that will shape the roll-out of 5G and its associated technologies. Our expert team offer you the knowledge and skills needed to forge your career at the forefront of the fourth industrial revolution.

Course Details

Over the next decade, information and communication technology (ICT), including fifth-generation (5G) mobile and the Internet of Things (IoT), will have a significant bearing on how we go about our daily lives. Our MSc ROBUST focuses on preparing you for industry. It’s designed to take you from your bachelor’s degree in electrical and electronic engineering, computer science or mechatronics to a role in advanced engineering and technology. Our dedicated, knowledgeable team will cover the key areas needed to make you stand out to employers.

We are now entering an information society, where technology-assisted living permeates our environment. Smart cities, towns and villages throughout the world are embracing technologies for a more connected and sustainable way of life and agri-tech has the potential to make farming more efficient through the use of wireless sensors, satellite earth imagery and drones. Additionally, all-electric autonomous vehicles are set to create a new, environmentally friendly travel experience and factories will make greater use of robotics and IoT to become fully automated, under what is known as Industry 4.0. These are exciting times for the technology sector, with significant opportunities for challenging and rewarding careers throughout the world.

Career opportunities

The MSc ROBUST course is likely to have significant appeal to anyone interested in how technology is likely to shape society over the next few decades, and especially to graduates of electrical and electronic engineering, computer science or mechatronics honours degree programmes.

To be competitive in the job market, students are increasingly opting for a master’s degree qualification rather than concluding their studies at bachelor level. The MSc ROBUST course is designed with the needs of industry firmly in mind. It covers advanced engineering and technology topics such as the Internet of Things, 5G mobile and robotics.

'Engineering and technology' was ranked seventh in the Complete University Guide’s Top 10 postgraduate subjects for employability (1) and third for postgraduate subjects for starting salaries (2).
