Overview of Bachelor of science ( hons ) in Robotic design and development in Taylor's University Malaysia

Robotic Design and Development at Taylor's is a multi-disciplinary programme combining mechanical engineering, electrical & electronics and computer science. It is designed to equip students with a sound understanding of fundamental theories and concepts in Robotics technology. This programme incorporates Work-Based Learning for students in their 3rd year. This will allow students to develop specialist knowledge, theory and skills by using the workplace as a context for project-based or practice-evidenced learning. Learn how you can step closer to your dream of impacting the ever-evolving world of robotics.


The degree programme will cover the methodical processes such as algorithms, in order to acquire, represent, process, store, communicate and access information.

With this degree students will embark on Work-Based Learning (WBL) for their 3rd year.
