Overview

The Robotics Engineering programme at University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) aims to develop graduates with a broad understanding of current technology and practice in electronic engineering, covering the relevant aspects of electro-mechanical systems and additional specialist areas according to the option modules studied.

The discipline of robotics engineering encompasses a wide skills base and the emphasis of this course is the design of complex systems for tele-operated, semi-autonomous and autonomous robots and incorporates aspects of sensing, control theory, computational intelligence and computing. The course is designed to equip graduates with the knowledge, skills and confidence to apply themselves to the design of mechatronic systems for a variety of applications and the transferrable skills to find employment in a diverse set of industrial and commercial sectors.

The course:

  • Meets the requirements for accreditation of the programme by the Institution of Engineering and Technology, which is expected to complete the review at the next stage
  • Provides an extended, enhanced, and industrially relevant integrated master’s programme of study in preparation for professional practice
  • Produces resourceful, competent, clear-thinking professional engineers with a range of skills and experience relevant to today’s engineering industry
  • Equips graduates with knowledge, skills, experience, and understanding which underpin a professional career in engineering

Opportunities

There are opportunities for paid, real-world industrial experience working on ERDF funded commercial projects connected to local industry in the North West, and Summer Undergraduate Internships, working on actual research projects - we recently placed a student with NASA.

The majority of graduates embark on careers in high value manufacturing. A course module that will help you plan your career as an engineering professional is part of your degree programme.

Opportunities for further study include a taught postgraduate MSc course in Digital Signal and Image Processing or Renewable Energy Engineering. The School has significant research activity in this area and graduates can opt for an MSc, MPhil or PhD with the Applied Digital Signal and Image Processing (ADSIP) Research Centre, Advanced Digital Manufacturing Technology (ADMT) Research Centre or Centre for Power and Energy Management.

Careers

Career options in Robotic Engineering are varied - you could go on to work in high value manufacturing, industrial and commercial sectors, aerospace, the automotive industry, the Ministry of Defence and research development. A course module to help you plan your career as an engineering professional is part of your degree programme.

Accreditation

Accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer.
