Mechatronics and Robotics BEng/MEng covers the integration of mechanical, electronic and intelligent control sub-systems to realise a complete system, which may be a product, machine or process. The multidisciplinary nature of Mechatronics employs design principles, processes, models, toolsets and philosophy unique to mechatronics engineers which enable the design and development of simpler, more economical and reliable systems. Mechatronics and Robotics engineers are in short supply, and enjoy highly versatile careers due to their multidisciplinary skills.
The course covers a unique balance of key analytical subjects and professional skills, ensuring that you graduate well-equipped to face challenging engineering situations in industry. The management skills necessary to operate successfully as a multidisciplinary engineer in industry are promoted and developed at all stages of the course.
You can study Mechatronics and Robotics either as a three-year BEng (Hons) programme, or as a four-year integrated master’s. At the end of year three, you have the option of graduating with a BEng or continuing your studies for a further year for a MEng, subject to meeting the progression requirements.
