During this Electrical and Electronic Engineering with Robotics (with an industrial placement year) (Hons) course at University of Sussex, you will have the opportunity to develop specific expertise in robotics alongside skills in electrical and electronic engineering.


The optional placement year also gives you the chance to get real work experience for a year in industry, while still being supported by Sussex.

Our world-class research in robotics, sensors, flexible electronics, medical imaging, dynamics and control and space systems informs our degrees to give you the best start in your career. You’ll study in our £12-million Future Technologies Labs, which provides a new space for building robots, programming embedded systems and digital signal processors, as well as state-of-the-art computer design and modelling suites. In particular, you will have access to our flexible manufacturing system, industrial robotic manipulator, humanoid robots, fleet of drones, autonomous vehicles, and a real-time motion monitoring system.

We have dedicated academic advisers to support you during you time at University of Sussex, as well as a team of student mentors. You’ll also be welcomed into our active, student-run engineering societies, and benefit from our partnerships with:

  • Women’s Engineering Society
  • Engineers Without Borders UK
  • Engineers in Business Fellowship.


Gain the skills for a career in engineering, and benefit from our links with companies like Jaguar, Siemens and IBM with this Electrical and Electronic Engineering with Robotics (with an industrial placement year) (Hons) programme. The skills you develop on this course enable you to go into graduate jobs in sectors including:

  • aerospace and electrical energy
    • IT and telecommunications
    • robotics.

    You can also meet employers at careers events. Recent sessions have included an event about the NHS Scientist Training Programme, talks by IBM and Atkins, and advice on applying for graduate schemes.
