Virtual ‘open day’ for MSc/PhD Robotics: Wednesday 9 December 2015

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Robotics and Autonomous Systems will hold a virtual ‘open day,’ focussing on its combined MSc/PhD in Robotics, 10am Wednesday 9 December 2015

On the same day, the University will hold virtual sessions covering topics such as fees, funding, making an effective postgraduate application, Tier 4 visas and English language support.

Innovative four-year Robotics programme

The Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) is a joint initiative between the University of Edinburgh and Heriot-Watt University. It offers an innovative four-year PhD programme which begins with an MSc by Research.

In the first year, individually-tailored course and project portfolios ensure students have a strong grounding in current theory, methods and applications of Robotics and Autonomous Systems, with flexibility for strategic study, and strong support leading to a specialised PhD project in subsequent years.

How does a virtual open day work?

The session is delivered using Blackboard Collaborate, an online classroom which allows you to hear and see a short talk about our Robotics and Autonomous Systems programme, and then ask questions if you wish.

Information on how to set up Blackboard Collaborate is available through the ‘Robotics virtual open day’ link below.

On Wednesday 9 December 2015, the Robotics and Autonomous Systems talk will be delivered at 10am by Dr Subramanian Ramamoorthy, with questions and answers immediately afterwards at 10.15am.
