Gain plenty of hands-on experience building and testing your inventions, using our state-of-the-art equipment and facilities.

Develop a unique combination of hardware, software and problem solving skills. Design and build your own mobile robot to compete against your classmates.

Learn about precision control of robots, how software systems and artificial intelligence integrate and how to make complex electronic systems communicate.

Careers / Further study

Our graduates are in demand and work in a range of areas.

They work in artificial intelligence (AI) consultancy on the London Stock Exchange and developing robots for the world's biggest computer hardware companies. They use their skills within UK engineering and software businesses.

Our graduates have been offered jobs with national and global companies, while others started their own businesses and are pursuing their creative ambitions.
