MSc Robotics and Embedded Systems
Embedded System are ever more capable engineering systems that we all use in our daily lives, ranging from applications in mobile telephones to washing machines, cars to aeroplanes.
This is currently one of the major growth areas and there is an increasing demand from industry for engineers who possess in-depth expertise in embedded systems. Another important field of engineering involves robotic systems. This programme brings both fields together to provide multidisciplinary skills with employment potential in a wide range of areas. These include the utilities, transport systems management, automated manufacturing, consumer electronics, robot systems, design, process control, the space industry, entertainment, robotics and smart homes. Students develop practical skills in the design, programming and interfacing of embedded microcontrollers and you will have the opportunity to design autonomous embedded systems through robotic and aerospace applications.
Systems engineering is an interdisciplinary field of engineering that focuses on how complex engineering projects should be designed and managed over the life cycle of the project. Issues such as automatic control of machinery, logistics, and the coordination of different teams become more difficult when dealing with large, complex projects. Systems engineering deals with work-processes and tools to manage risks on such projects, and it overlaps with both technical and human-centered disciplines such as control engineering, industrial engineering and project management.
This Postgraduate programme is for students who already have an Engineering, Computer Science or Bio-engineering, and Mechanical background and wish to specialise in Systems engineering, Robotics and Real time systems.
With a particular emphasis on Advanced Robotics, the learning will focus on systems that are designed to operate with a degree of intelligence and autonomy.
After spending 4 weeks in Salford (G.B.), the students will stay in Biarritz (French bask seaside), taught by the Salford lecturers, by Estia lecturers, and by Industrial experts.
