Course content

The Masters in Mechatronics is a fusion of mechanical, electrical, electronic and control engineering. Modern industry depends for its success in global markets on its ability to integrate these subjects into both the manufacturing process and innovative products and systems.

Why Glasgow?

· The University of Glasgow’s School of Engineering has been delivering engineering education and research for more than 150 years and is the oldest School of Engineering in the UK.

· Electronic and Electrical Engineering at Glasgow is consistently ranked amongst the top 10 in the UK and top 5 in Scotland, recently achieving 1st in Scotland and 4th in the UK (Guardian University Guide 2015).

· Mechanical Engineering is a core engineering discipline that has a long history in the University of Glasgow, dating back to the 1760’s and includes famous people such as James Watt.

· You will learn how to apply design synthesis and analysis technique within a coherent range of subjects in mechatronic engineering, utilise specific software tools to support mechatronic system synthesis and analysis activity, and professionally plan, report and present the results of multidisciplinary project activity.

· This programme has a September and January intake.

Programme Structure

Modes of delivery of the MSc in Mechatronics include lectures, seminars and tutorials and allow students the opportunity to take part in lab, project and team work.
