Work placement opportunities
Enhance your practical and professional skills, with past placements undertaken at IBM, PayPoint, Netready and Exel Computer Systems Industry-standard facilities
DMU Robotics Club
Put your skills into practice by taking part in the DMU robot club, with a chance to compete in an international robotics competition, such as the ‘Robot Challenge’ in Vienna where our students and staff have previously won prizes
Enjoy an international experience with #DMUglobal
We offer all students the opportunity to take part in a #DMUglobal experience, which can enrich your studies and expand your cultural horizons. Previous #DMUglobal trips have included New York, Berlin, Hong Kong, China, Canada, Japan, South Africa, Russia and Italy to name a few.
The course gives you a detailed understanding of artificial intelligence concepts and techniques, and the ability to apply this knowledge to a variety of problems and subject areas
You will learn to develop basic hardware and software models and programs. You will also use artificial intelligence code that allows you to accomplish various tasks, including controlling advanced mobile robots in our purpose-built laboratory.
Students who are interested in broadening their academic experience are given the opportunity to spend their placement year in an overseas university. This course offers a direct link with the University of Ulm (Germany).
The university runs a dedicated Robot club as part of the DMU Square Mile project, which works with local secondary schools to give young people a chance to experience degree level robotics at a much earlier age. Students have the opportunity to solidify the skills learnt on their course by instructing the secondary school children on how to construct the robots.
There is also the opportunity of developing a robot project in groups or individually. Successful students have the chance to take their robots to the Robot Challenge which is held in Vienna (Austria) every year and let their robots compete in an international robotics competition.
“My time at DMU was very well spent in the robotics laboratory; I’ve learnt many new things that I couldn’t have without the time and in the specialist facilities with our lecturing staff. It is a fun, interesting and thought-provoking subject.”
