Ever wondered what the future will look like with robots increasingly involved in our lives? Whether you imagine them helping you to keep your home tidy, being part of the production line in a factory, servicing a hospital, or driving on the road, you would like to know how to design and drive their behaviour!

On this ACSE Taster Session, you will be able to acquire a taste of the engineering skills needed to build and control robots in fundamental tasks across these domains. We will also show you how we envisage robots to be part of our bodies that deliver the medicine of tomorrow.

As a prospective engineer, you will have the opportunity to catch a glimpse of an exciting futuristic world with robots, and feel in control of this technology.
