Course summary

This course is designed for students with a strong interest in developing smart mechanical systems. Drawing on our established expertise in Mechatronics, Robotics, Materials and Instrumentation, the course will produce engineers with a solid knowledge of mechanical systems, control, design and the interplay of these disciplines.Engineering has become a hi-tech discipline requiring integrated expertise across subject areas. For instance, a robot or an autonomous vehicle requires a mechanical platform with sophisticated drive mechanics and control. Employers increasingly require engineers to solve problems using innovative design approaches while improving efficiency and productivity. Therefore, this course teaches mechanical engineering with a strong emphasis on design and smart technologies. To achieve this, you will carry out hands-on projects combining your mechanical designs with control systems under the supervision of specialist academics. Course modules provide a solid grounding in mechanics, materials, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, mechatronics, robotics, control, instrumentation, mathematics, electronics, and programming. You will also benefit from the employability and career development activities offered across our degrees; these activities are informed by industrial interaction and include placement opportunities. The course has been designed to fulfil the requirements for Accreditation from the Engineering Council.The Foundation Year aims to extend access to university education to students from a wide variety of educational backgrounds and age groups and prepares these students for our 3-year Engineering degrees.
