Industry and Research-informed
The programme is strongly linked to the research and innovation taking place within the Lincoln Centre for Autonomous Systems, and Lincoln Agri-robotics – the world’s first global centre of excellence in agricultural robotics. These research centres are leading the way in developing robotics in fields including manufacturing, healthcare, autonomous driving, and agriculture.
The University of Lincoln has also launched the world’s first Centre for Doctoral Training in Agri-food Robotics in collaboration with the University of Cambridge and the University of East Anglia. This new advanced training centre in agri-food robotics is creating the largest ever cohort of Robotics and Autonomous Systems specialists or the global food and farming sectors, thanks to a multi-million-pound funding award from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.
"The Robotics programme at Lincoln offers students a broad range of training experiences in the multidisciplinary world of robotics, covering hardware and software basics, from electronics and mechanics, to autonomous control and intelligent decision-making."Professor Elizabeth Sklar, Director of Research, Lincoln Agri-robotics
Entry Requirements 2023-24
The degree is taught across the University’s College of Science, with research-informed teaching and facilities from the School of Computer Science, the School of Engineering, and Lincoln Institute for Agri-food Technology. Computer Science and Engineering at Lincoln are housed in the University’s Isaac Newton Building, while the Lincoln Institute for Agri-food Technology is situated just three miles north of Lincoln in a beautiful semi-rural setting at our Riseholme Campus.
Robotics bridges the gap between mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and computer science, opening up opportunities across a range of different careers. Graduates are well placed for positions in manufacturing, technology companies, or medical robotics, or to go into research and development. Students may also choose to continue their study at postgraduate level at Lincoln, including on our MSc in Robotics and Autonomous Systems.
