Mechatronics is a synergistic combination of precision mechanics, electronics, controls, and computer engineering, combined through a process of integrated design. On the MSc in Mechatronics, the development of skills and advancement of knowledge focus on enabling students to understand the combination, at a high level, of Mechanical and Electronic Engineering and to gain a broad range expertise in these areas.
This is alongside developing a student’s ability to control mechanical systems using analogue and digital electronics. This course will give students an awareness of modern digital embedded platforms for mechatronic systems.
Students will cover subject specific subjects such as Dynamics and Performance of mechanical Systems with the option of Artificial Intelligence or Renewable Energy Systems and Smart Grid alongside cohort taught subjects to develop their management skills and their employability.
The successful postgraduates of the course will acquire the knowledge and understanding, intellectual, practical and transferable skills necessary for the analysis and synthesis of problems in engineering and manufacturing through a combination of experimental, simulation, research methods and case studies.
They can expect to gain work in a range of disciplines within a variety of industries from specialist technical roles to positions of management responsibility.
