Entry requirements

Applicants must normally have a good honours degree in a relevant area or academic equivalent such as Computer Science, Electronics, Engineering, Mathematics, Physics or Information Technology.

Exceptionally, applicants who have substantial working experience in either the computing, electronics or embedded systems areas (without a first degree) may be considered (if you can satisfy the admissions tutor of your motivation, numeracy and evidence of your ability to work at this level).

Course content

Mechatronics is an exciting, growing field that combines mechanical, electronic and control systems to create a complete device. It mostly relates to the mechanical systems that perform relatively fast and precise motions and therefore require sophisticated electronic devices and control algorithms. This hands-on course will help you develop the multidisciplinary knowledge that the fast-moving industrial, commercial and domestic sectors demand of their technical professionals.

The MSc will meet, in part, the exemplifying academic benchmark requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Accredited MSc graduates who also have a BEng(Hons) accredited for CEng, will be able to show that they have satisfied the educational base for CEng registration.

Key features

  • Academic teaching is complemented by presentations from industry experts and by industrial trips, such as the UK annual NI Days conference, held in London.
  • You will have the opportunity to experience hands on activities and projects with our state of the art robotics, autonomous systems and embedded systems facilities.
  • You will enjoy group assignments, supporting each other's learning and have opportunities to develop your ability to work in teams. You will also benefit from an industry-relevant final project. The presentation, which is part of the final project, will prepare you for your job interview.
