Program Overview

Over the next decade, information and communication technology (ICT), including fifth-generation (5G) mobile and the Internet of Things (IoT), will have a significant bearing on how we go about our daily lives. Our MSc ROBUST focuses on preparing you for industry. It’s designed to take you from your bachelor’s degree in electrical and electronic engineering, computer science or mechatronics to a role in advanced engineering and technology. Our dedicated, knowledgeable team will cover the key areas needed to make you stand out to employers.

We are now entering an information society, where technology-assisted living permeates our environment. Smart cities, towns and villages throughout the world are embracing technologies for a more connected and sustainable way of life and agri-tech has the potential to make farming more efficient through the use of wireless sensors, satellite earth imagery and drones. Additionally, all-electric autonomous vehicles are set to create a new, environmentally friendly travel experience and factories will make greater use of robotics and IoT to become fully automated, under what is known as Industry 4.0. These are exciting times for the technology sector, with significant opportunities for challenging and rewarding careers throughout the world.

Highlights

  • The MSc ROBUST course provides a unique blend of modules, delivered by experienced and knowledgeable academic staff.
  • Key enabling technologies are introduced through dedicated 20-credit modules, which deal with the principles of mobile communications, satellite communications and applications, wireless sensors and the Internet of Things, autonomous systems and robotics.
  • The technical modules are supported by a module addressing research skills and methods, which provides a solid platform for a 60-credit ROBUST project, culminating in a dissertation in one of the subjects covered by the course.

Key Features

  • The MSc ROBUST course has been carefully designed to address the worldwide demand for top technology talent.
  • The course follows the University’s ethos of being teaching intensive, research informed (TIRI).
  • The course is designed to meet professional institution standards in the UK and Europe.
  • This course is based at the University of Bolton’s campus in Greater Manchester, which is home to one of the fastest-growing digital technology sectors in Europe and boasts the largest number of digital workers in the UK outside of London. In particular, the University is only a short distance from MediaCity:UK, which hosts some the UK’s leading technology organisations, including Vodafone and its 5G testbed, Smart Cities Catapult, and Huawei.
