About this course

This Advanced Mechanical Engineering Science master’s in mechatronics combines electrical, mechanical and computer engineering. You’ll learn to design and build using advanced electrical systems.

Our master’s courses combine traditional aspects of mechanical engineering with specialisms from other areas, so you can adapt your study to your career plans. Our international centre for research and teaching has a global reputation. 

Our MSc Mechatronics master’s degree is for you if you studied engineering, maths or physical sciences, and want to specialise in mechatronics. 

On this course you’ll learn the fundamental science, methods, analysis and engineering applications to start a career in mechatronic engineering. You’ll have the opportunity to design robots and build machines as part of your study. 

You’ll learn about mechanical engineering, electrical systems and control. As part of this MSc in mechatronics, you’ll select optional modules on topics like robotics and automotive propulsion. 

We’ll teach you to use advanced electrical systems and understand the impact and use of control systems, instrumentation and sensors.  

You’ll learn from academics at the forefront of their fields, they teach the latest in technology advancements. You’ll also receive guidance and support from our Electro-Mechanical Engineering Research Group. Studying at Southampton gives you access to a global network of companies, shared facilities and specialist expertise to enhance your learning.

We regularly review our courses to ensure and improve quality. This course may be revised as a result of this. Any revision will be balanced against the requirement that the student should receive the educational service expected. Find out why, when, and how we might make changes.
