About this course

This Masters degree will get you ready to take the lead in developing tomorrow’s intelligent machines and devices. It’s designed to meet the high demand for graduates with advanced mechanical and electrical engineering skills. The course includes management and legal training, preparing you for your career ahead - whether you go into robotics, flexible manufacturing or any other discipline in this fast-moving field.

This programme has the same curriculum as our 3-year BEng Mechatronics degree, but includes an additional year. This is when you’ll study mechatronics in greater depth and develop your professional skills. It also has a strong focus on practical work, including the design and build of an autonomous robot.

Accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology, this degree will put you on the fastest route to becoming a Chartered Engineer.

The degree can also be taken with industrial studies, which involves an extra year working for one of our partner companies. For international students, this is the only way to spend a year working in the UK, and it’s the best way to make contacts that could lead to employment here.
