Overview

Mechatronics gives you the opportunity to become a professional Engineer with sound analytical proficiency in embedded systems, digital electronics, dynamics and control, complemented by the 3D-design and management skills necessary to work in modern industry.

Mechatronics is the widely recognised term for 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 design and development of simpler, more economical and reliable systems.

Mechatronics Engineers are in short supply, who enjoy highly versatile careers due to their multidisciplinary skills.

The course has a unique balance of key analytical subjects and professional skills, ensuring that you graduate with the confidence to face challenging engineering situations in industry. The management skills necessary to operate successfully as a multidisciplinary engineer in modern industry are promoted and developed at all stages of the course.
