QUT Robotics MOOC: free short online courses

QUT Robotics course are available to all regardless of location or qualification, online. The Robotics Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are hosted on the FutureLearn platform and have attracted thousands of participants from all over the world. You can take two programs, both three 3-week courses, and are made so you can do this in your spare time.

Robot Academy: university-level resources

Robotics and Autonomous Systems is a broad field. It is difficult for you to know what to look for, or where to start. This is why we have developed an online academy, the QUT Robot Academy.  Access free-to-use undergraduate-level learning resources for robotics and robotic vision. The content is available as individual lessons (over 200 videos, each less than 10 minutes long) or a masterclass (a collection of videos, around 1 hour in duration, like a lecture). Although targeted at undergraduate-level around 20% of the lessons require no more than general knowledge, and the required knowledge (on a 5-point scale) is indicated for each lesson

Undergraduate courses

QUT also offers a variety of undergraduate level courses that involve more detailed instructions on the mechanics of robotics and autonomous systems.

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Mechatronics)

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Electrical and Aerospace)

Postgraduate studies

We have over 30 PhD students undertaking research in a diverse range of topics spanning robotic vision, bio-inspired robotics, aerospace autonomy, medical robotics and beyond. See more information about joining the team for your post graduate studies.
