Expenses, accommodation, working etc.



This MEng (Hons) degree programme has more depth and breadth than the BEng (Hons) programme in Mechatronics and Robotic Systems. Therefore you will study a greater range of subjects. You will also study the core subjects in more detail such as Advanced System Modelling and Control. In addition to the individual final year project, you will also undertake a major group project in the third year.

All of our undergraduate programmes will give you the solid training employers want to see and we work closely with top employers in the development of our programmes. Emphasis is given to the basic principles of electrical/electronic engineering together with information technology, both software and hardware, and you will use industry standard tools, technologies and working methods ensuring you are in an excellent position to move smoothly into industry.

Programme structure

Programme Year One

You will take the modules:
