Robotics & Autonomous Systems at University of Liverpool

Robotics and autonomous systems are starting to be ever more present in our everyday lives, from self-driving cars to in-home care systems. The government has also identified robotics and autonomous systems as one of the ‘Eight Great Technologies’ where Britain is or can be a global leader. As a result the demand for highly intelligent autonomous systems is ever increasing, as is the demand for highly qualified graduates both in academia and industry to realise such systems. 


The University of Liverpool is a Russell group member and is ranked in the top 1% of higher education institutions world-wide. The school of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science runs several research-led undergraduate courses which are focused around various aspects of robotics and autonomous systems. The school also fosters strong links with industry (Rolls-Royce, Bentley, AWE, etc.) and other professional bodies (IET,IEEE). 

What is it all about?

"I really enjoyed it especially being able to work in groups where we could both meet new people and develop our knowledge of making robots, soldering, and coding which is something I wasn’t as familiar with. "

"Having the opportunity to experience university life and the activities and lectures that may be offered in the robotics course has been extremely beneficial. Having hands-on experience has given me a sense of familiarity."

"I've enjoyed my experiences with electrical engineering and have got a better perspective on the differences between the theory side of computer science and the software engineering side of it which is helpful for deciding my degree."
