The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: English.
Often you can get a suitable transcript from your school. If this is not the case, you will need official translations along with verified copies of the original.
IELTS: 6.0 (with a minimum of 5.5 in each band)
At least 1 reference(s) must be provided.
A motivation letter must be added to your application.
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.
Programme Year One
You will take the modules:
Digital and Integrated Electronics Design
Electrical Circuits and Systems
Experimental Skills/Engineering Skills
Solids and Structures
Introduction to Mechatronics
If you are not sure if you wish to take a BEng (Hons) or an MEng (Hons) degree then we advise that you apply for the MEng and make a final decision at the end of Year Two.
Programme Year Two
Signals and Systems
Electronic Circuits and Systems
Instrumentation and Control
Electrical Circuits and Power Systems
Solid and Structures
Digital Electronics and Microprocessor Systems
Programme Year Three
This is the placement year during which you will spend time working in an engineering company. This is an excellent opportunity to gain practical engineering experience which will boost your CV. Many placement students continue their relationship with the placement provider by undertaking relevant projects when they return to the University and may ultimately return to work for the company when they graduate. The placement is assessed by two reports, a poster and an oral presentation.
Preparation for the placement is provided by the University’s Careers and Employability Services (CES) who will assist to finding a placement, help you prepare a professional looking CV and prepare you for your placement interview. Placements can be near or far in the UK, Europe and China. For example placements have been offered by the Proudman Oceanographic Laboratory which is based on the University campus. And CES is active in finding placements with companies based on Suzhou Industrial Park (SIP) in China. Students who take up a placement on SIP are offered accommodation at our partner University, Xi’an Jiaotong Liverpool University, based in Suzhou and they have access to all the facilities on the XJTLU campus.
Programme Year Four
You study both compulsory modules and options chosen from a list of advanced topics. In addition, an extended individual project is undertaken, linked to the needs of an industrial partner. The compulsory modules are:
Embedded Computer Systems
Industrial Robotics & Automated Assembly
You choose optional modules from:
Signal Processing and Digital Filtering
Digital System Design
Electronics for Instrumentation and Communications
Integrated Circuits – Concepts and Design
Application Development with C++
Photonics & Optical Information Systems
Power Generation, Transmission and Distribution
RF Engineering and Applied Electromagnetics
RF Engineering & Applied Electromagnetics
Programme Year Five
During this year, students continue compulsory modules, choose further options and undertake an extended group project. A recent project involved controlling a robot to navigate through a maze – each project with an advanced technical element is linked to a research group programme that is also supported by industry. The compulsory modules are:
Digital Systems Design
Advanced System Modelling and Control
Management of Design
Management of Product Development
The optional modules are:
Information Theory and Coding
Radio Propagation for Wireless Systems
Optical Fibre Communications and Sensing Systems
Advanced Guidance Systems
MEMS Design and Nanotechnology
Software Engineering and Programming
Energy Conversion, Renewable Engergy and Smart Grids
Digital Wireless Communications
Electrical Discharges and Power Network Safety
Communication Networks and Security
Power system Measurement, Monitoring & Sensors
or modules from the Year Three options list not previously taken
Our degrees have excellent career prospects: 90% of graduates go on to graduate level jobs. Graduate employers include Siemens, BAE Systems, BT and Guardian Media Group. Careers are many and varied and include Design Engineer, Systems Engineer, Medical Physicist, Postdoctoral Research Scientist and Radio Frequency Scientist. Some of our graduates go on to work in the industrial sector, in government and in education, whilst others enter non-technical professions such as banking, accountancy, management and law.
