Robotics Individual Project (H7124)

30 credits, Level 6

Autumn and spring teaching

You'll focus on a real-life engineering problem in the area of robotics, where you'll apply the skills and knowledge from your degree.

The work must be done within budget, using available resources, by a deadline and presented to an audience not necessarily familiar with the work carried out.

You'll need to take a holistic approach that brings together learned knowledge and your robotics engineering skills. It also demands individual responsibility, critical awareness and creative thinking.

You'll work under the supervision of a faculty member on an area of activity relevant to robotics to meet a set of objectives. Your project will normally involve:

  • specification
  • development of concepts
  • detailed design
  • hardware and/or software implementation
  • testing, analysis and evaluation
  • documentation and communication
  • project management, resourcing, planning and scheduling.
