Course content

This course will prepare students to be creative and innovative in addressing challenges from mechatronic system and product research, design and development in the era of the Internet of Things, Industry 4.0 and Industry 5.0.

The course will develop students' understanding of key aspects of mechatronics and robotics and how they fit into the context of the full range of industrial sectors and rapidly-developing everyday applications. This course will also provide students chances to address the challenges, problems and solutions involved in mechatronics in modern industry including the optimal and intelligent mechatronics system design and development, engineering operation and management, pioneering approaches in this field and how to apply them to solve both real-world and pioneer research-oriented problems.

You will have the chance to work as a team member of individual on a project on the topics ranging from artificial intelligence through smart industrial robots, sensing and embedded systems to smart mechanical systems and products, intelligent industrial inspection, biomedical application and surgical robotics.

The programme is designed for students interested in developing their careers in areas of both theoretical and practical aspects of mechatronics engineering. It also provides excellent preparation for those wishing to continue their study to doctorial level research.

The course has been designed to enable membership with the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Institution of Mechanical Engineering (iMechE).

Study style

The course includes lectures, guest speakers, seminars, individual work, self-led work/research and group work.

Group work brings together engineers from a variety of backgrounds to shape projects and tasks. As a day release course, you can immediately apply your learning to your industry role.

Meeting increasing demand

There is an increasing demand for knowledge and skills in research, design and development of mechatronics systems within the UK and world-wide, as well as local engineering companies who are always looking to employ graduates.

Part of a wider Business School

Study in a school that combines engineering, computing, business and management. The school have supervised engineering PhD projects and has significant experience of Knowledge exchange and KTP with local engineering companies.


Industry links

The course is specifically designed with industrial partners in order to provide an accredited qualification with which organisations can enhance their employees' capability in designing and developing mechatronic systems. You will have a chance to practice your knowledge in local companies such as ABB, MOOG, SC Group, Spirax Sarco, Dowty Propeller, Kohler Mira and Total Metal Products Ltd
