If you don't have the scientific or mathematical background for our engineering courses, this degree with a foundation year is for you. The foundation year will build your skills and knowledge in related areas to ensure you're ready to move on to your degree.
You'll study modules in mathematics, further mathematics, physics and engineering. Each of these will introduce you to the key concepts and skills in the subject, from calculus to the structure of atoms, and your engineering module will give you the chance to apply this knowledge practically as well as introducing core engineering principles.
After successfully completing your foundation year you'll be able to progress to the first year of the three-year BEng Mechatronic and Robotic Engineering.
Your robotics degree
Robotics is a highly interdisciplinary branch of engineering, which requires technical skills from a range of engineering disciplines. During the degree you'll be taught by academics who are active researchers in robotics and mechatronics. You'll develop skills in designing, analysing and testing robots, autonomous vehicles and other complex electro-mechanical systems. In the last year of the degree you'll have the opportunity to tailor your course to suit your interests with optional modules.
During the degree you'll also get a chance to work with students across the University's faculties of engineering and science. You'll take part in the Global Engineering Challenge: a week-long team project where you'll find creative solutions to a real-world engineering problem. You'll also be able to get involved in extracurricular activities. Current projects include designing and building payloads for satellites and rovers, and developing autonomous vehicles and rockets.
Other options for you:
After successfully completing your foundation year you'll be able to progress to the first year of the BEng Mechatronic and Robotic Engineering or BEng Mechatronic and Robotic Engineering with a Year in Industry course.
