Course summary

Why choose this course?

Giving you a comprehensive engineering education combined with specialist knowledge of electro-mechanical systems, this course addresses industry’s demand for graduates who can integrate the principles and applications of mechanical, electrical and electronic engineering. You will learn to evaluate a range of solutions to engineering problems, and to select and apply appropriate solutions to engineering systems. You will use software packages to design, analyse, and evaluate system designs. As you progress, you will develop your integrative approach to designing electro-mechanical systems and become familiar with the techniques of digital signal processing. In the first year of the course, you will study engineering principles across a broad range of topics. The second year combines mechanical engineering subjects with areas such as embedded systems, digital and analogue electronics and electronic systems design. In the final year of the BEng, there is an emphasis on the design and analysis of electromechanical systems. You will also have the opportunity of preparing a business plan around a product that you have designed. If you continue onto the MEng, you will study modules such as robotics sensors and control and condition monitoring, and undertake a substantive and integrative project that embraces much of what has been learnt in doing the course, as well as broadening subjects such as business management and accounting.

Potential Career Paths

The Mechatronics subject area provides career opportunities in a broad spectrum of industrial activities, as well as offering a gateway to all levels in the education sector. Mechatronics graduates have followed career paths as diverse as research and development within aerospace companies through to secondary school teaching.

In the contemporary industrial environment, the approach to problem solving, design, and research and development activities is to form multidisciplinary teams, thereby ensuring that all avenues are explored and evaluated. The Mechatronics engineer is well placed in this structure, since the ethos of the subject is broad based.

The course enables graduates to attain management positions, with significant levels of responsibility within a relatively short time.

Graduates may also study for a taught postgraduate degree, MSc, or a research degree, MPhil/PhD, within the Department.

The transferable skills gained during the course, including: project management, group working, and analytical thinking, also enable a graduate to pursue careers in non-technical fields such as: law, accountancy, authoring, and computing.
