Overview

This course provides you with specialist skills to drive the mechanical innovations required by modern industry. You’ll explore the very latest approaches to mechatronics – designing systems with built-in intelligence, enabling machines to adapt to ever-changing data inputs and demands.

You’ll examine new developments in the Internet of Things (IoT) era – the growing interconnection of smart devices, sensors and digital systems, able to transfer data without human input. These advances are leading to a revolutionary phase in industrial development, Industry 4.0, creating new levels of automation, monitoring and self-diagnosis.

The course equips you with knowledge of mechatronics, robotics and engineering design and management. You’ll learn how to make best use of data inputs to create smart factories, as well as how people interact with these processes. You’ll also see how industry’s increasing dependence on connectivity is creating new vulnerabilities, particularly the cyber security risks associated with automation.

Organisations in the UK and worldwide are keen to benefit from the greater efficiencies mechatronics can provide, as well as building resilience to the risks. With the skills and knowledge to design and develop mechatronic systems, you’ll be able to develop your career in modern industries during an exciting time in technology development.
