Robotics and Artificial Intelligence Masters Degree - MSc/PgD/PgC

On this Master of Science degree in Robotics and Artificial Intelligence (AI), you will develop advanced skills across complex and core topics in service, industrial and social robotics. You will study the latest cutting-edge advancements in the field – such as machine learning techniques, robotics vision & speech, and 3D modelling. You will then apply your knowledge to the design and development of sophisticated autonomous intelligent apps, 3D designs and physical robotics systems. 

You will also develop strong managerial and leadership skills, and a global appreciation of the economic, legal, social, ethical and environmental context of robotics. In addition, there are opportunities for short-term mobility trips to visit global industry leaders and short industrial or academic internship placements, which can often prove very useful in securing future employment in the UK and globally. An expert-level knowledge of robotics, AI and machine learning is highly desirable in industry, with opportunities for further research and PhD study also available.

Entry Requirements

  • Applicants should have an Honours degree at least 2:2 or its equivalent in a relevant area e.g. Robotics, Artificial intelligence, Computer Science, Information Systems, Mathematics or an appropriate Engineering specialism. 
  • Students whose first language is not English will need to provide evidence of fluency to at least an IELTS 6.0 standard or equivalent.

Career Prospects

The need for trained experts in Robotics and Artificial Intelligence is growing globally. 

The learning, teaching, assessment and feedback of the MSc in Robotics and AI are designed to develop a professional portfolio of project work and robotics & AI artefacts as students move into graduate employment. 

This innovative programme is built with emphasis on work-based learning towards employability, ethical and social entrepreneurship. It aims to develop professionals and entrepreneurs with a global knowledge of a wide range of robotics and AI theories and scientific applications through the lenses of social entrepreneurship. 

Course Details

The MSc in Robotics and Artificial Intelligence is closely integrated with the EUREKA Robotics Centre – one of only 11 specialist centres in the UK, and the only Centre in Wales with a unique focus in social and service robotics (profiled by the International Trade Department, UK Government, p. 11). The EUREKA Robotics Centre is also the only University centre in Wales on the KTN Robotics & AI Innovation Network Map for “Specific Capabilities & Technologies”. Students have the opportunity of undertaking an internship at the Centre or partners organisations to gain robotics and AI industrial or research experience. 

The programme is aiming for Chartered IT Professional Accreditation (CITP) by The Chartered Institute of IT (BCS), for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered IT Professional in the UK. It is also seeking to meet the further learning requirements for Chartered Engineer (CEng) registration. The Engineering Council sets the overall requirements for the Accreditation of Higher Education Programmes (AHEP) in engineering, in line with the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC).
