The development and deployment of robotic and smart manufacturing technologies have become very important for a significant number of industrial sectors in Ireland and the rest of the world, including biomedical, pharmaceutical, agricultural, and electronics manufacturing companies.

The main barrier to implementing modern, smart automation technologies in standard manufacturing practices is the lack of skills of automation experts in robotics and digital manufacturing. In Ireland, this is manifested in the difficulty Irish robotic and system integration companies have in recruiting engineers who can be readily involved in today’s complex automation cell and line-building projects. This is also reflected in the average salary of automation experts, which is among the highest in the country. The main goal of this program is to produce experts with sufficient scientific and practical skills in the areas of robotics and smart manufacturing.

This program is delivered by a highly research-intensive school, which is in the top 150 in the QS world subject rankings. An example of this research activity is the coordination of the 2.23-million-euro Horizon Europe iCircular3 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions project, with one of its main research goals being to take advantage of circular economy principles for improving the efficiency as well as for extending the lifecycle of industrial robots.
