Fields of practice: Robotics



This is a studio subject, not a conventional subject guided by a set curriculum. Its purpose is to provide an environment in which students can gain and simultaneously translate knowledge into a robotics system. Studios are product-based subjects, largely conducted in the studio, in collaboration with other students, academic staff and industry mentors. Students do a combination of individual self-directed study and project work.

This is the first studio in the Robotics major, and its objective is to introduce students to the multidisciplinary field of robotics engineering in both theory and practice. It aims to familiarise students with the topics of robotics motivated by real-world applications. This studio has two tracks that cover essential components of any robotic system: (a) hardware/software track and (b) sensing/perception track. Individual projects in this studio, designed to deepen particular skills, are guided by a learning contract.

Once students have completed the first studio and a range of coursework subjects, it is expected that they have the skills and knowledge to allow them to undertake the development of more challenging products in the second Robotics studio.
