About this course

We've changed some parts of this course for the 2020 to 2021 academic year due to coronavirus (COVID-19). These changes may affect how we'll teach you and which modules you'll take.

The programme specification addendum (PDF, 1,328 KB) has all the latest details.

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 integrated master's 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

  • take a work placement to boost your academic performance and prepare for your career

  • explore the growing area of automation and robotics

  • use our design workshops and studios

  • showcase your work in our annual Engineering Design Show

  • go on site visits to experience engineering in practice

You can take this course with an additional, year-long, paid placement. Apply with UCAS code H3H2 for the Industrial Placement Year option.

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

This course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) as meeting the academic requirement, in full, for Chartered Engineer registration.
