Our Robotics Engineering (Hons) programme offered at Queen Mary University of London combines computer science, mechanical and electronic engineering to teach you how to develop, manufacture, analyse and deploy robotic, mechatronic and artificial intelligence systems.


Get hands-on experience of how of robots are designed and built, and how they are applied in sectors as varied as manufacturing, aerospace and healthcare.

The Robotics Engineering (Hons) programme offered at Queen Mary University of London is taught by Queen Mary’s Schools of Engineering and Materials Science and Electronic Engineering and Computer Science, and supported by world-leading experts from the Centre for Advanced Robotics @ Queen Mary.

During the first year, you will learn fundamentals in robotics and mechatronics, engineering mechanics and design, computation and programming and electrical and electronic systems. You will gain substantial knowledge on robotics and automation, their applications and mechatronic components. You will have fundamental skills and expertise in statics, dynamics, computer programming and analysis of electrical systems.

In Year 2, you’ll be taught specialised modules around robot kinematics, mechatronic systems, sensing and actuation, control and systems engineering, rapid prototyping and robot design, microcontrollers and advanced computer programming. You’ll also learn theory and practice in computer-aided design, programming and control for robotic, mechatronic and general electro-mechanical systems.

Year 3 modules will introduce robot dynamics and advanced control, modern programming and modelling methods for robotic and autonomous systems, fundamentals of artificial intelligence and human-robot interaction. A design project will provide an opportunity to apply your knowledge and skills to exciting research applications, working with academics from the Centre for Advanced Robotics @ Queen Mary and other world-leading research groups.

By the end of your third year, you’ll have become an expert in robotics and mechatronics with a unique combination of highly demanded skills from mechatronics, electronics, computer science and artificial intelligence.

If you choose the MEng option, you’ll also be taught courses on specialised and advanced robotics topics including cognitive robotics, biomedical applications of robotics, computer vision, machine learning, real-time control.

We've recently undertaken a review of our programmes to ensure that they will prepare you for life beyond 2030 and ensure they reflect the global challenges facing both our society and your future as engineers. We have developed the modules we offer in consultation with our students, staff and industry to enhance your student experience and graduate employability.

We have mapped the modules in our programmes to a range of attributes that we would like our students to attain, within the areas of creativity, resilience, communication and professional practice in order to produce well-rounded, interested and highly employable graduates. This mapping ensures these skills are embedded in the technical modules on the programmes. This not only ensures that the technical knowledge and understanding works for students as they progress through their degree, but it also gives us the confidence that students will graduate with skills they can apply to a range of future careers or higher-level study.


Robotics bridges the gap between mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and computer science, opening up a range of careers. Graduates are well placed to find work in manufacturing, technology companies or medical robotics, or to go into research and development.

Recent Engineering graduates have been hired by:

  • the BBC
  • BT
