Overview

Learn how to design, analyse and test transforming robots, autonomous vehicles and other complex electro-mechanical systems. We’ll also show you how to control robotic systems using modern microprocessor technology.

You can also explore advanced concepts including manufacturing systems, noise and vibration control, spacecraft systems and robot technology.

In the first year, you’ll take the Global Engineering Challenge. This involves working with other engineering students on a one-week project to tackle a real-world problem. The challenge is designed to develop your skills and enhance your career prospects.

At the end of the second year, you may choose to transfer to the four-year MEng course.
