12 month MSc: A 2:2 honours degree, or international equivalent, in mechatronics, mechanical or electronic engineering or a related subject. 24 month MSc: A 2:1 honours degree, or international equivalent, in mechatronics, mechanical or electronic engineering or a related subject. We will also consider your application on an individual basis if you have lower or non-standard qualifications and/ or relevant experience. Applicants may be required to attend for interview if practical.
Months of entry
This course develops your knowledge and skills in mechatronics design and practice. You will develop skills in mechanical and electronic engineering, computing and control, and multidisciplinary skills appropriate to the requirements of modern manufacturing technologies.
This one year course is intended for honours (or international equivalent) graduates in mechatronics, mechanical or mechanical related engineering (eg automotive, aeronautical or design), physics or a related discipline.
A two year MSc is also available for non-native speakers of English that includes a Preliminary Year.
The taught part of the course consists of major mechatronic engineering themes such as:
- industrial automation
- embedded systems
- instrumentation and drives
You have the opportunity to undertake in-depth studies through research projects.Your project is chosen from an extensive range of subjects. Project work can range from fundamental studies in areas of mechatronics to practical design, make and test investigations.
