Robotics in your career

Who might be working with robots in the future? Could the study of robotic systems be key to your future career?

Who might be working with robots in the future? Could the study of robotic systems be the key to unlocking your future career?

In this video, academics and students from The University of Sheffield give us their view on how, in a growing industry, there are many careers options for those who can work with robots.

Further study

If you’re interested in building our future with robots, then you may wish to consider the following courses offered by the Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering at The University of Sheffield:

Undergraduate courses

Mechatronic and Robotic Engineering (MEng and BEng)

Learn how to design, analyse and test transforming robots, autonomous vehicles and other complex electro-mechanical systems. We’ll show you how to control robotic systems using modern microprocessor technology.

You can also explore advanced concepts including manufacturing systems, noise and vibration control, spacecraft systems and robot technology. At the end of the second year of the BEng, you may choose to transfer to the four-year MEng course.

Postgraduate courses

MSc Robotics

Control and Systems Engineering for your PhD

In our research, we address fundamental challenges in understanding and managing the complexity of man-made and natural systems. Our approach focuses on theoretical developments in complex systems analysis, modelling, control and computational intelligence.
