As the world of work evolves, we see a growing need for expertise in the robotics and automation field – in Aotearoa and globally. This is based on their widespread applicability in many industries, including healthcare, agriculture and manufacturing. The MRobotEng aims to produce graduates with the knowledge to develop, deploy and support these technologies at advanced levels, for years to come.
Many of our teaching staff are well-recognised experts in the field, and are a part of the University’s Centre for Automation and Robotic Engineering Science, who boast collaborations with industry and researchers at a global scale. This ensures that our courses are kept up-to-date with recent real-world applications, as well as containing direct insights into the emerging technologies available here in New Zealand.
Our history of interdisciplinary collaborations also means that you will have opportunities to participate in projects with a variety of industry partners. While this is a primarily taught programme, there is a valuable, distinctive research component that will let you demonstrate your ability to apply theoretical principles to applicable real-life scenarios. You will also be exposed to hands-on work to gain the theoretical and practical knowledge necessary to thrive in this sector.
This programme will not run until Semester One, 2022. If you'd like to get started on this study option in 2021, you may consider the Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Diploma in Robotics and Automation Engineering.
