About

FARSCOPE aims to train the next generation of innovators in the growing field of robotics and autonomous systems (RAS). The vision of the Robotics and Autonomous Systems programme from University of Bristol is ubiquity or robots everywhere enabling students to think beyond a robot's technology and about its environment.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

Our four-year Robotics and Autonomous Systems programme from University of Bristol  leads to the award of a joint PhD degree from both the University of Bristol and the University of the West of England. A PhD is a uniquely challenging and rewarding endeavour, especially in a cutting-edge field like RAS.

We have enhanced the standard individual PhD in various ways to give you the best possible start on your RAS research and innovation career:

  • specialist taught modules in a wide variety of RAS technologies to equip you for research;
  • exposure to a diverse range of industry and academic RAS topics to give you a broad view of the potential and context of RAS;
  • cohort-based skills training including enterprise, public engagement, communication and research methods;
  • group projects and industry study workshops to foster creativity, practical skills and integration.

Careers

Students graduating from this programme will be suited to careers in industry, as ambassadors for robotics across many different sectors, or starting their own enterprises.
