MSc ROBOTICS TECHNOLOGY – BI-CITY TECHNICAL BOOST
• Experience both UK and US academic environments by spending your second year studying at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) in Pittsburgh, USA. Our unique programme is delivered in collaboration with CMU which is recognized for its leading arts, sciences, and engineering programs.
• Expand your skills with first-class facilities including 3D rapid prototyping systems, in-house PCB design and assembly tools, and our award winning Plymouth Humanoid robots.
• Get expert training from members of the Marine and Industrial Dynamic Analysis (MIDAS) research group and the Centre for Robotic and Neural Systems (CRNS). Our teaching is underpinned by research and industrial strengths in these areas and both CRNS and MIDAS have contacts with major UK robotics companies.
Benefit by combining disciplines that are traditionally taught separately. You’ll graduate with the expertise and joined-up knowledge to design and develop fully integrated mechanical, electronic, control and computing systems.
Year 1 – At Plymouth University
Your first year is delivered at Plymouth where you’ll gain deep theoretical and practical knowledge of robotics with an emphasis on mobility and interaction. You’ll cover control and design, interfacing between real-world devices, autonomous processing and evaluation of acquired information, as well as interaction with the user and intelligent decision making. You’ll have access to a robotics club and to a seminar series so that you can keep up-to-date with advances in the industry and academia.
Year 2 – At Carnegie Mellon University.
This programme is collaboratively delivered by Plymouth University and the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, USA. The Institute is an international leader in robotics education and founded the world’s first robotics PhD program in 1988.
Entry Requirements for MSc Robotics Technology
A minimum of an upper second class honours degree (2.1) in a technical subject such as robotics, computing, engineering (mechanical / electrical / electronic), physics or mathematics.
• If you are a student with advanced standing, who can evidence an academic ability to a similar level, you may also be considered.
• A minimum of grade C in English language at GCSE level or 7.5 IELTS score (with scores of 5.5 in each band).
• You must take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) test and your results will support the admission decision.
• Recommendation letters are required from at least two individuals who can evaluate your academic potential.
• A sound understanding of mathematics (A level) and familiarity with a programming language such as C, C++, Java or similar.
Postgraduate scholarships for International Students
Several scholarships for international students who wish to study postgraduate taught (PGT) degree programmes are available like: Vice Chancellor’s International Student Scholarship, GREAT scholarship for students of Indian nationality, International Student Merit Scholarship, International Student Masters Scholarship
