The University of Southampton is launching the world's first Masters degree in Unmanned Automated Vehicle Design.

From September, postgraduate students will be able to take part in a comprehensive one-year programme covering the design, manufacture and operation of robotic vehicles.

Long used for various military purposes including surveillance, the course aims to develop civilian purposes for so-called drone aircraft.

Matt Bennett, a graduate of the university who has helped set up the new course, showed Robert Hall one of his own developmental models. For more see: Inside an unmanned robot plane and Southampton University pilots spyplane design course
