About this program

Mechatronics BEng

Mechatronics covers the integration of mechanical, electronic and intelligent control sub-systems to realise a complete system, which may be a product, machine or process. The multidisciplinary nature of Mechatronics employs design principles, processes, models, toolsets and philosophy unique to Mechatronics Engineers which enable design and development of simpler, more economical and reliable systems.

Mechatronics engineers are in short supply, who enjoy highly versatile careers due to their multidisciplinary skills.

The course has a unique balance of key analytical subjects and professional skills, ensuring that you graduate with the confidence to face challenging engineering situations in industry. The management skills necessary to operate successfully as a multidisciplinary engineer in modern industry are promoted and developed at all stages of the course.

The duration of the MEng program is four years and the BEng program is three years. At the end of year three you have the option of exiting with a BEng degree or continuing for a further year, subject to meeting the progression requirements for the MEng degree.

At the end of year two, you have the option of undertaking a placement year in industry, which will extend the respective program by a further year.
