About this course

Learn how to create smarter machines, from autonomous robots to self-driving cars. Using advanced mechanical, electrical and control engineering, you'll explore a range of innovative products and systems. The combined skills you'll learn will be highly sought-after within the engineering and manufacturing sectors.

Mechatronics is the combination of mechanics, electrical and control systems. We find it in devices such as:

  • autonomous robots

  • self-driving cars

  • complex construction equipment

This 4-year degree provides the core topics you'll need to master mechanical engineering. It then gives you the advanced skills to be able integrate electrical systems and mechanical devices.

As part of this course you can:

  • gain an in-depth understanding of sensors, instrumentation and signal processing for structural design

  • explore the growing area of automation and robotics

  • use our design workshops and studios

  • take an additional year-long paid placement in an engineering organisation

  • showcase your work in our annual Engineering Design Show

  • go on site visits to experience engineering in practice

During your studies you can go on a work placement to boost your academic performance and prepare for your career.

We're a designated university for the Defence Technical Undergraduate Scheme (DTUS).

This course is fully accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and offers a route to chartered status.
