The University of Manchester is a truly global institution, with a reputation for education and innovation that resonates across the world.


Our research engages with the world’s biggest questions – that’s why we bring together the best people in these fields to help us to find the answers. We’ve a history of attracting world-leading minds to work with us, from Niels Bohr and Arthur Lewis to our latest Nobel laureates Andre Geim and Kostya Novoselov, whose pioneering work with the one-atom thick wonder material graphene has established Manchester not just as the centre of research into its application ...More information


The robotic group is a sub section of the Control Systems group, of the School of Electral and Electronic Engineering of the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences the The University of Manchester. The UoM roboitc group focuses robotic solutions for on nuclear decommissioning, electrical power systems, bipedal & multi legged platforms and out reach.

The group is divide in the two main groups, one based on teh floors D & E of the Sackville Street building. The other base on the west coast of Cumbria, inside the Innovus area within NNL Ltd, Workington.



The UoM Robotics group is headed by Prof Barry Lennox, supported by Dr Simon Watson and Dr Joaquin Carrasco Gomez. These three academics work within the Control Systems research group and collaborate with other schools and departments. For example; the Electrical Energy and Power Systems (EESP) research group, and the Dalton Nuclear Institute at The University of Manchester

Developing the next generation of nuclear decommissionning robotics research. Working in partnership with the nuclear sector and other unverisities around the UK and EU to reduce risk, accelerate productivity an reduce long term costs .
