BSc Project (Robots in an Application Context)


Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

A specific task which potentially can be robotised is selected (e.g. an industrial task, a rehabilitation task, a service task). After the end of the module the student must show capability to develop and present a robotic solution to the task

Learning objectives


  • Must have knowledge of at least one application area, e.g. robots in health care, industry or entertainment
  • Must have knowledge of the scientific basis for the specific application area


  • Must be able to make a requirement specification
  • Must be able to seek out and develop a solution and present it in the form of sketches, diagrams, drawings and virtual as well as physical prototypes
  • Must be able to justify the benefits of the developed solution
  • Must be able to independently plan and carry out a development on basis of a given problem
  • Must be able to choose and apply relevant methods and tools


  • Must be able to devise how a relatively complex robotic system could be specified, designed, managed and produced, and in a professional manner to prove this
  • Must have the ability to assess important impacts (e.g. economic) aspects of the solution
  • Must be able to demonstrate engineering skills within robotics and to display their ability to perform engineering work
  • Must be able to take responsibility for their own professional development
